Library Loot June 11th - June 18th

 
Library Loot is a weekly theme hosted by  Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader
Since I'm currently scraping by as a freelance writer, I unfortunately can't afford to buy books right now *insert sad face here* which I hate, but luckily I have an awesome library in my city, so until I can have my own personal library filled with wall-to-wall books, the public library's the next best thing.

  

I wouldn't have gotten any books this week except a few came in that I'd been on the reserve list for.  Other than that, I'm still working away at last week's books.  I've been really busy this week, and it doesn't help that I'm such a slow reader!

Here are this week's selections:

I can't remember how I discovered this book but the title caught my attention because Notting Hill and Love...Actually are two of my favorite movies.  Plus I love the cover!




I saw this book reviewed a lot over the last couple of months and was curious - even more so when I followed Sarah on Twitter and she followed me back. :-)  Again, love the cover - can't wait to read this one!





I've mentioned several times before that Heather Graham used to be one of my favorite authors.  I love all of her older books but the last couple of years, they just haven't been as good as they used to be.  I keep trying - I actually just finished Night of the Vampires by her, which I'll be reviewing soon - and keep hoping that she'll go back to being the author whose books I used to devour. 

My cousin Bertha told me about this book a few weeks ago, so I requested it.  She started it and wasn't sure if she was going to like it - not sure if she continued or finished it, but I'll give it a shot.

 




 *The linked titles of the books lead to each book on Amazon.  I belong to Amazon Affiliates - anything that you buy from my blog through Amazon gets me a small commission, and as a struggling freelance writer, I can use every cent I can get!  If you're considering buying any of the books I mention on this blog, if you go to Amazon through the links on my blog to buy, it would really help me, and I'll be eternally grateful!*


What are you reading this week?  What have you read lately that you really enjoyed?  Do you have any suggestions for my library loot picks next week?  I read just about any genre, and I'm always looking for suggestions!

  1. Haven't heard of any of the books but the covers look amazing. Someone on twitter asked if book covers were still important... YES.

  2. They're all great, aren't they? And absolutely, covers are SO important - I hear so many people say that, or that they pick books based on the cover - I know I do, it's an odd system but it works! lol
