Library Loot

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Marg at The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader and Claire at The Captive Reader that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.

Not much loot from the past two weeks as I've had some review books I needed to read and one or two on my shelf I'd been saving for the RIP Challenge so have tried to practice restraint on my visits..........doesn't always work!

Wrecker by Summer Wood: " the story of a nearly-broken little boy whose presence turns a motley group of isolated eccentrics into a real family". I'm reading this now and liking it very much.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs: For the RIP Challenge. " A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography." I hope it lives up to the promise of the title and cover!

The Strange Fate of Kitty Easton by Elizabeth Speller: Historical fiction set in England following WWI.
" A village haunted by its, betrayal - and violence."

Daniel by Vicky Adlin: Another book by a New Zealand family historian. 'The story alternates between real-life events as they happen to Daniel and following Libby, the modern day researcher, as she seeks his true story." 

What's in your loot this week?


  1. I love how creepy the cover to Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is.

  2. So many people have been buzzing about Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. It looks like a horror (which I steer clear from) but is it in fact a fantasy?

  3. Linda - So do I! Hard to resist.

    Keri - I don't know yet - hopefully a bit of both.

  4. Heard a lot of good things about Miss Peregrine!

    Enjoy your loot!

  5. I've been eying Miss Peregrine myself. Actually, Cat, they all look good LOL

  6. I really want to try Peculiar Children also but something is keeping me from doing so, not sure what. Look forward to your review.

  7. Marg - I hope it's good because I admit to having been seduced by its cover. :-)

    Diane - I think I'll enjoy them all - Wrecker is a very nice story for a start.

    Marce - sometimes have to listen to one's intuition .
