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.
What I got from the library this week:
I popped into the library for a very quick browse (it was closing in 25 minutes) and to pick up a few holds I had for the kids.
The three physical books I got are:
The Cat Who Saved Books by Sōsuke Natsukawa, Louise Heal Kawai (Translator)
I’ve seen this around a lot online and definitely had to pick it up when I found it on the New Arrivals shelves. Cats and books! Translated from Japanese! Sounds quirky!
Kaiju Preservation Society by John Scalzi
I’ve read and enjoyed a few books in Scalzi’s Old Man’s War series but haven’t read his other books (and he seems to have written a lot). This one sounds like an interesting read. This guy signs on to work for an “animal rights organisation” that turns out to be one that deals with kaiju (which in Japanese means “strange beast”).
The Memory Librarian: And Other Stories of Dirty Computer by Janelle Monáe and others
I’ve not heard Monáe’s music before but I probably should, since this book is based off her album Dirty Computer.
Teach Me – Olivia Dade
I borrowed this for the Book Riot reading challenge – Read a romance where at least one of the protagonists is over 40. I’m not entirely sure if the protagonists are over 40 so hopefully this works?
Paradox Girl Vol 1 – Cayti Bourquin, illustrated by Yishan Li
Not quite sure how to describe this comic, so I’ll just copy and paste this part from the synopsis: “As a hero with the power to go anywhere and anywhen, Paradox Girl has made an absolute mess of her own life. She’s changed history so often that she isn’t even sure who she is anymore.”
