Library Loot (November 13 to 19)

badge-4Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Sharlene from Real Life Reading that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries.

Happy Wednesday!

The libraries here were closed on Monday for Veterans Day. But there’s always ebooks!


The Testaments – Margaret Atwood

One of the hot titles of the year, there is a long queue for this library ebook! But there apparently is a “skip the line” option at my library!

“Skip the line is made up of specially selected copies of high demand titles set aside for immediate access on a first-come-first-serve basis. These copies are only valid for a 7-day loan period and non-renewable. Only 1 Skip the line copy can be borrowed at any one time.”

Yup 7 days! Well at least it’s a quick read!

In this brilliant sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, acclaimed author Margaret Atwood answers the questions that have tantalized readers for decades.

When the van door slammed on Offred’s future at the end of The Handmaid’s Tale, readers had no way of telling what lay ahead for her–freedom, prison or death.

With The Testaments, the wait is over.

Margaret Atwood’s sequel picks up the story more than fifteen years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead.


Mouthful of Birds – Samantha Schweblin

This book is on the Man Booker Prize longlist

Unearthly and unexpected, the stories in Mouthful of Birds burrow their way into your psyche and don’t let go. Samanta Schweblin haunts and mesmerizes in this extraordinary, masterful collection.

Schweblin’s stories have the feel of a sleepless night, where every shadow and bump in the dark take on huge implications, leaving your pulse racing, and the line between the real and the strange blur
