Passionate reader of various genres except horror. I was that kid with the flashlight under the covers, reading when I should have been sleeping. I love to read, talk about what I've read and just hang out with other readers.
Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader that
encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the
library. It's easy to join, just post your loot and link up with Mr.
Linky at either Claire or Marg's blog. It's that simple!

First up is Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein, which caught my eye for a number of reasons. The setting and time period are not the usual and the two main characters, both female, are involved in the war efforts. I've already read it, very hard to put down. I hope to get the review posted soon.
I have two weeks. You’ll shoot me at the end no matter what I do.

up everything I can remember about the British War Effort. And I’m going
to. But the story of how I came to be here starts with my friend

We are a sensational team.
The next book, Tessa Dare's A Lady by Midnight, is an ebook checked out from the library's "Digital Library" which I try to use as much as possible. The only drawback is no ability to renew so I have to get the ebooks read within the 2 week time period. No problem with Ms. Dare's books, this one is proving to be a quick, enjoyable read.
A temporary engagement, a lifetime in the making . . .
years of fending for herself, Kate Taylor found friendship and
acceptance in Spindle Cove--but she never stopped yearning for love. The
very last place she'd look for it is in the arms of Corporal Thorne.
The militia commander is as stone cold as he is brutally handsome. But
when mysterious strangers come searching for Kate, Thorne steps forward
as her fiance. He claims to have only Kate's safety in mind. So why is
there smoldering passion in his kiss?
Long ago, Samuel Thorne
devoted his life to guarding Kate's happiness. He wants what's best for
her, and he knows it's not marriage to a man like him. To outlast their
temporary engagement, he must keep his hands off her tempting body and

a dark ops malfunction, Major David Berg finds himself dead center in a
military trial. It’s a race against time to root out the truth, and
Major Sophie Campbell isn’t making that any easier. The hot JAG wants to
bring down David’s unit and fast. His testimony is crucial to winning a
case that will make her career. All Sophie has to do is ignore this
witness’s unflappable charm, his unnerving good looks, and a strong,
solid presence that commands her attention. It’s not easy for David,
either. His attraction to this take-charge beauty is turning him inside
out. But these adversaries have more in common than secret, mutual
desire. There’s a traitor somewhere in the dark ops and now, to find
him, David and Sophie must work together—relentlessly, tirelessly, and
so intimately it could be damn near fatal.
