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.
This week I brought home two fiction and three non-fiction....
The Book of Secrets by Fiona Kidman - In the 1850's a group of settlers established a community at Waipu in the north of NZ. Led by a stern Scottish preacher they had followed him from Scotland to Nova Scotia and then to NZ via Australia. Fictional characters against a factual background should make for an excellent historical novel by this well-known NZ author.
Touch & Go by Lisa Gardner - the latest in the Tessa Leoni series.
Uncommon Arrangements by Katie Roiphe - seven marriages in literary London 1910 - 1939.
Love from Nancy: the letters of Nancy Mitford edited by Charlotte Mosley - I have read some of her letters before but not this collection which I know I'm going to love.
Wave by Sonali Deraniyagala - a memoir of life after the 2004 tsunami. I read a review full of praise for this one in a magazine - sounds as if tissues may be required.
What's in your loot this week?
