Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva 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 didn’t take a picture but I’m really, really excited about my library haul this week (and this is my first post in this particular weekly event). I brought home:
This is Atwood’s latest novel (normally found in dystopia) and is about two women who somehow survive a plague that has been genetically manufactured plague (for conspiracy theorists – AIDS or H1N1?) and are isolated during its spread. The women are members of a cult that has previously stated that God has been planning vindication for all of humankind’s sins in the past. I love Atwood and loved The Handmaid’s Tale so I reserved this copy so long ago.
Considering that I’m on a Scottish kick lately, Gabaldon’s Outlander shouldn’t be a surprise. I’ve read it once before, a long, long time ago. It’s an interesting combination of historical fiction (the novel takes place in the 1940’s AND in the 16/17th century Scotland), time travel (the main female character time travels) and romance (she falls in love with a Highlander she meets after she goes back in time). CANNOT wait to sit and read this with a glass of wine.
