Library 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.
My library recently announced that they would allow curbside pick-up of library holds soon but when I tried to sign up, all the time slots were full! Oh well. Maybe there will be another chance in the future. For now, library books are due July 7 and there’s always ebooks and audiobooks.
I don’t really listen to podcasts much but once in a while I check in with the Reading the End Bookcast (hi Jenny!). And in their most recent episode, the Gin Jenny and Whisky Jenny mentioned this book. And it’s not a book I had heard of before, but sounds just perfect for reading now. Also, it has the word ‘chocolate’ in its title.
Sorcery & Cecelia: or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot – Patricia Wrede and Caroline Stevermer
A great deal is happening in London and the country this season.
For starters, there’s the witch who tried to poison Kate at the Royal College of Wizards. There’s also the man who seems to be spying on Cecelia. (Though he’s not doing a very good job of it–so just what are his intentions?) And then there’s Oliver. Ever since he was turned into a tree, he hasn’t bothered to tell anyone where he is.
Clearly, magic is a deadly and dangerous business. And the girls might be in fear for their lives . . . if only they weren’t having so much fun!
I didn’t really want to get this as an audiobook but my library only has it as an audiobook, so no choice at the moment!
The Hero of Ages (Mistborn #3) – Brandon Sanderson (audiobook)
Tricked into releasing the evil spirit Ruin while attempting to close the Well of Ascension, new emperor Elend Venture and his wife, the assassin Vin, are now hard-pressed to save the world
