Library Loot Sept 9 - 15th

Library Loot is a weekly event that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library hosted by Eva and Marg.

So today I walked down to the library, the second library thats in walking distance to my house, but one I dont go to alot because it's about a 35 minute walk away (the other super small, neighbourhood one is about ten minutes). Anyways I looked through the catalogued and saw they had a bunch of books I needed for challenges.

ks Checked Out Today

Robinson Crusoe - Daniel Defoe
From Who the Bell Tolls - Ernest Hemingway
A Room With a View - E.M Forester
Tall Grass - Sandra Dallas
Anthem - Ayn Rand
The GoodDoctor - Damon Galgut (Which I picked up on a whim, caught my eye as I was leaving to the check out counter)

Books Checked out from Previous Weeks
Sophies Choice - William Styron
Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
One Hundred Years of Solitude - Gabrial Garcia Marquez

Returned Books
I ended up returning 3 books. Only read the Notebook, because the other two didn't seem to be for me. I read a few random passage and knew they'd be one of those books, that I'd force my self to finish. And although I have no problem giving reviews to books I dislike, challenges need to be wrapped up and, so many books need to be read. I can always go back to them :)

The Notebook -Nicolas Sparks
Traitors Kiss - Gerald Seymor
Bookends - Jane Green


  1. The Notebook was one of those books that i knew within a few paragraphs was just not for me. At the time I was using it for a challenge, though, and was too strict on myself to change. I was only beginning the challenge. I wish I hadn't finished reading it.

    I see you have The Hunger Games, though! Have fun reading it! It's wonderful and i hope you like it.

  2. great books! I liked Robinson Crusoe but it's slow to keep that in mind. I've heard great things about Sophie's Choice, so I look forward to your thoughts.

  3. I'm not a fan of Ayn Rand or Daniel Defoe, but I hope you enjoy them! I read A Room With a View last year and really liked it-it was different from what I was expecting. :) The Good Doctor has a great cover-I'd grab it on an impulse too!

  4. One Hundred Years of Solitude was a real favorite for me. It was kind of confusing in the beginning with all the characters having similar names, but once I got past that, it was smooth sailing. I hope you enjoy it!

  5. I finished 3 books One Hundred Years of Solitude, Anthem and Hunger Games.

    One Hundred Years of Solitude was good, but slow.

    Anthem was great. Hunger Games Excellent.

    Currently Reading Robinson Crusoe, and I'm doing everything I can to stay awake.
