Library Loot- November 19

Hosted by Eva at A Stripped Armchair and Marg at Reading Adventures.
We share what we each picked up at the library during the week.

I'm on the roll again of checking out books and passing some blame along to others this week!!

Mysterious Affair At Styles by Agatha Christie
** I read my first Christie in one day this past weekend..loved it!! Thank you Robin for your help in suggesting I read Spider's Web. This one above is where we're first introduced to Hercule Poirot and I can't wait to read it!!
~ blame goes to Robin of My Two Blessings and to Jane of Fleurer Fish. Click on their names for their reviews of this title.

Opposite of Love by Julie Buxbaum
** I, for the life of me, can not recall where I heard about this book!!! I hate that!! No one to blame for this one.

June Bug by Chris Fabry
** This one is my fault....saw the book while "browsing the library shelves" and thought the story would be good. A young girl sees her face on a Missing Child flyer hanging in Wal-Mart and everything that she thought was real comes crumbling down around her.

Always Watching by Brandilyn and Amberly Collins
** I read a great review written by Nise of Under The Boardwalk. So I had to read it because I'm always looking for great middle-school/YA books to add to our schools collection. This is a murder mystery with a Christian faith twist to it.

A Veiled Deception / Larceny and Lace (Vintage Magic Mysteries )by Annette Blair

** I'm slightly addicted to cozy mysteries and I found these on Monday during my time spent at the library. Has anyone read them???? I love the covers!! I'm blaming every single book friend that has ever reviewed a cozy mystery...this new addiction is YOUR fault!

The Quiche of Death : An Agatha Raisin Mystery by M.C. Beaton
** All blame for this one goes to Kaye of Pudgy Penguin. I'm sure that I will be tearing through this series. Thanks for the recommendation Kaye!!!

A Year in Japan by Kate T.Williamson
** I read a wonderful review of this book just the other day at Heather's blog Book Addiction. I knew that I had to get my hands on it. I was an exchange student in Japan in 1987, so I'm hoping to bring back some memories!!

  1. June Bug sounds like a great book. I will have to see how you like it and then put it on my Goodreads list. I didn't get anything from the library this week because I am still working on what I have!

  3. I like your cozies. Haven't been to the library in a while, but will after Dec. 4 rolls around.

  4. Love the loot this week! Just finished The Quiche of Death last week, and have been looking for A Year in Japan - no copies in my library system :-(

  5. I have not read any of these but I hope you enjoy them Staci.

  6. Nope you can't pin those on me, but yes they sound great. And love those cozy covers

  7. Wow, lots of loot this week! I will be very interested in hearing about the Agatha Christie, since I want to read one by her and this one sounds like it could be a good choice.

  8. I'm blameless this week! I saw several great reviews of The Opposite of Love so I can't help you figure out where you saw that one. Happy reading!

  9. Looks like you got some great library books this week! Glad to see that I'm not the only one who can't resist new library books!

  10. I have The Opposite of Love on my tbr list. It looks good.

  11. Where did the er on the end of my name go??!! I hope you enjoy your visit to Styles and I think you'll enjoy the quiche. The others I don't know but they look like a fine array. Happy reading!

  12. Where did the er on the end of my name go??!! I hope you enjoy your visit to Styles and I think you'll enjoy the quiche. The others I don't know but they look like a fine array. Happy reading!

  13. Very nice haul! I'm a fan of cozy mysteries too but my favourite has always been Agatha Christie!

  14. That's quite the assortment Staci. You might have heard of Opposite of Love from me. I mentioned wanting to read it in my review of her newest book After You. It sounds quite good.

  15. That is a lot of books! I really need to get in a habit of using our library!

  16. I haven't read any Agatha Christie in ages and I'm sort of in love with M.C. Beaton's series. Thanks for the reminder to get back to Christie!

  17. Bookfool gave June Bug a fabulous review a few months ago. Every time I walk past it on the shelves at work, I think to myself, BUY IT!! I may just have to do so. Maybe a Christmas present to myself. :)

  18. I've always wanted to read June Bug. It's been on my list forever. Also, Opposite Of Love, I've seen that one somewhere too although I'd don't recall where. Sounds good though.

    Happy reading! :D
