Library Loot


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

Last week I didn't get to the library until the weekend so held my post over until now as this week I won't be going at all. :-(


The Penguin Complete Novels of Nancy Mitford.......I'm not expecting to read them all but the only way I can read any was to totter home with this huge tome.

Elizabeth Gaskell by Winifred Gerin.......a biography


77 Shadow Street by Dean Koontz.........this is not a ghost story. It is scarier by far. 

No One Left to Tell by Karen Rose.......Ramon Munoz has spent five years in prison, convicted of a murder he did not commit. His family turn to private investigator Paige Holden for help.

Kind of Cruel by Sophie Hannah.........secrets buried deep in her subconscious hold the answer to why Amber Hewerdine has been arrested for the murder of a woman she has never met. I've already read this - very good psychological suspense.

What's in your loot this week?

  1. I am a little terrified by the size of The Penguin Complete Novels of Nancy Mitford - it is not a book you want to lug around on the bus! I know nothing about the Gerin biography but I love Gaskell and want to read more about her (having only read the excellent Uglow biography so far). Enjoy your loot!

    1. The library also had the Jenny Uglow but this one was smaller and is very easy reading which suited me at the moment. I sure won't be reading the Mitford in bed. :-)

  4. I reviewed 77 Shadow Sreet a while back - it's a creepy read but I loved it. Hope you enjoy it and your other books too.

    1. I'm a longtime fan of Dean Koontz but have been disappointed in some of his later ones so hoping this will be better. Creepy sounds good!!

  5. I've heard good things from both Karen Rose and Dean Koontz, but I have yet to pick up a book myself from either author. I do love the genre they write for and I'm determined to delve more into that because I don't really read all that much in the thriller/horror/crime genre.

    Enjoy your loot!

  6. Karen Rose writes a good crime thriller with a mix of romance. If you want to try Koontz I suggest his earlier books.
