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.
I'm still keeping a firm rein on library borrowing and restricting myself to only a few lighter books to read between the classics for the Victorian Celebration. Here is what I've brought home the last two weeks.....
Random Passage by Bernice Morgan .......historical fiction about the settling of Newfoundland. I've had this book on my TBR for years but never got round to reading it so I thought it would be a good one to start the Canadian Challenge.
City of Hope by Kate Kerrigan.......It's the 1930's and when her husband dies Ellie Hogan decides to return to New York but finds the city unrecognizable. I'm reading this now and it's light, relaxing reading.
Deep Water by Patricia Highsmith.......vintage crime -'an atmosphere of nameless dread, of unspeakable foreboding'.....should be exciting bedtime reading!
The Behaviour of Moths by Poppy Adams......'From her lookout on the first floor of the crumbling mansion that was once their idyllic childhood home, Ginny watches for her younger sister to return after forty-seven years.' I like the sound of this one.
The Gods of Gotham by Lyndsay Faye........New York again, in the 1840's. I've seen quite a few positive reviews so thought I'd give it a try.
The 3rd Victim by Sydney Bauer.......A bloodsoaked nursery. A missing baby. A traumatised mother. A courtroom thriller by an Australian author and hopefully great weekend reading.
What's in your loot this week?
