Library Loot - 05/16/12

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire and Marg 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.


I haven't done one of these posts in a while, because I've been reading so slowly that trips to the library have seemed wasteful.  I've had a couple really great trips though and have some great books on deck...

Hi, I'm visiting via library loot.
I enjoy reading about life in the romany culture and haven't come across 'Gypsy boy' before so i shall certainly be looking that one up, thanks x

The only one of those that I have read so far is The Night Circus which was a good read.

Enjoy your loot!

Ooh you've been busy at the library :-) I loved The Night Circus but thought The Night Strangers was just okay. And you have quite a few books on your list that I want to read as well, like Salvage the Bones.
