Library Loot #4

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.

Hey, everyone! Today I wanted to share with you all some library books I received recently so you can get an insight on some of the books I'm reading this month. I absolutely love the library. I am always surprised when people have to start a book buying ban for themselves because why not just borrow books? Free is always the best price.

If you know me, you know that Nora Roberts is an odd pick for me to read. Dark Witch is actually for my mom but I plan on reading it afterwards since I've been wanting to read it for ages. I can't remember which blog I first saw this book on but I was convinced after reading a review on it. For some reason my min blocked out the hilarious summary I read out loud to my mom as soon as I got the book for her. 

"When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, he’s three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package."

Come on now. A cowboy, pirate AND wild tribal horseman? Now that is too many fantasies for one girl to take! 

I don't care. I'm still into it. And the mom reports it's going well.

Yes, I enjoy picture books as a 24 year old woman with no kids. I've distanced myself from reading them as much as I want to because it is a little strange but I love books and I decided that I'll read what I want. There's a short but cute book trailer featuring Morris Mole that sparked the want to read the story which you can find below. You know I never see book trailers around anymore. Very rarely do I see YA/Adult books being promoted but maybe I'm just not looking. I tend to find more book trailers for picture books which sometimes even has the read aloud in the side bar recommendations.

I've known of Hermelin for a while now. For some reason I gravitate towards picture books with some detective aspect fairly often. But look at the cute mouse and tell me you don't want to read his story.

Hermelin has put me on to the Disney movie The Great Mouse Detective after looking for its trailer which it doesn't have. So now I have to watch this Sherlock and Holmes work in mouse form.

I've been wanting to read Let's Pretend This Never Happened since 2012. 2012.... As you are all my witnesses I will read this book if it's the last thing I ever do. 

Funnily enough, I didn't not plan on reading/borrowing two books with mice on them on purpose.

I truly hope I enjoy reading this book thoroughly especially since its top tag on Goodreads is Abandoned... I really know how to pick them.

Do you sense a theme arising with all of the covers I chose? I didn't do it on purpose, I promise. Papillon is a very cute kitty whose fluffiness makes him light enough to float in the air. Don't worry. He will not be getting attacked by IT. Let's hope not.

This premise is very reminiscent of Princess Hyacinth: The Surprising Tale of a Girl Who Floated. I'm not mad at it though. It's a fun and cute concept although harrowing for the main character.

Yeah, I'm still thinking about IT...

We end my library loot list with the one book I've read which is The 101 Dalmatians. Did you know this was a trilogy? I have some thoughts on the story that'll be coming up on the blog soon. I'm happy to have finally read such a classic children's book. I loved both Disney versions but the live action one was crazy good. Do you remember the game Mr. Dearly (Roger) was making? Did you know it was an actual game that you could play? I wish I had an old computer system to play some of my favorite PC games. 

What have you gotten from the library lately?
What's a classic Disney movie you've been wanting to watch/rewatch?


  1. I didn't know 101 Dalmatians was a book! How fun. That's great you got picture books - I love them too, and hey, we can read what we want. That mouse detective book sounds awesome!


  2. Aw the detective mouse. So cute! Happy reading :)

  3. Yay awesome library loot! That reminds me that I need to check their page to see if a book has come

  4. Looks like you have an animal theme going with your books. :) I love the library! Always get so many goodies there. I haven't read any of these- but I can't wait to hear about them. I love picture books- and think they are for people of all ages. More people should read them! Happy reading. :)

  5. Didn't Dodie Smith write I CAPTURE THE CASTLE? I had no idea she had also written 101 DALMATIONS! Now I have to read it. Also, I don't really read picture books, but the Hemelin one sounds super cute.


  6. I want to read Morris Mole! How cute! I read all of Nora Robert's fantasy books and enjoy them for the magic and romance. They are usually pretty quick reads, but also formulaic. Happy Reading!
