Library Loot (May 25 to 31)


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.

Hey, it’s Library Loot day. What did you get from your library this week? Let us know in the link-up or comments below.

What I got from the library this week:

Among the White Moon Faces – Shirley Geok-lin Lim

This book by Malaysian-American Lim has been on my TBR list for many years now. So I was a bit surprised to find it when browsing my library’s Libby catalogue. It was first published in 1996 so I guess it’s recently been given a new lease of life with an ebook publication?

Build Your House Around My Body – Violet Kupersmith

The synopsis describes it as “part puzzle, part revenge tale, part ghost story”. This is set in Vietnam and spans 50 years. Sounds intriguing.

The Sentence – Louise Erdrich

So I opened Goodreads as usual to check out the synopsis of this book. And the first review on my list was by Jenny of Reading Envy. She was very active in many online bookish communities, like on Goodreads and Instagram. I found out a few days ago that she had passed away recently. It was rather heartbreaking to read about that. I’ve never met her in person but I’ve followed her for many years through various bookish media channels. She will be missed.

Rosaline Palmer Takes the Cake – Alexis Hall

I’m a sucker for cooking and baking-related romances

Love & Saffron – Kim Fay

A food and friendship story! While I really like the first book cover (which is luckily the one my ebook copy has), I am kind of put off by the second one.


  1. Love and Saffron is cute and I completely agree about the covers. I’m not sure why I don’t love the orange/pink one but there’s something off-putting about it. Both are really well matched to the content though, not always a given with cover design!
