Library Loot

A meme to encourage bloggers to share all the wonderful loot they bring home from the library.

Here is my loot for the week;

The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins ..........for an August readalong.
We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver.........I put this one on hold after reading two reviews on the same day which definitely made me feel this was one to read.

Angels' Blood by Nalini Singh
The Wives of Henry Oades by Johanna Moran

I brought these two home simply because they both have a New Zealand connection. I know part of The Wives of Henry Oades is set in early NZ but the Nalini Singh was a real surprise. I saw it sitting on the shelf in the NZ authors section and thought it must be in the wrong section which it wasn't. I've seen her books around a lot and read reviews but had no idea she belonged in this part of the world. So although I don't really think it will be quite my thing I'll give it a try.

Hope you have some great loot this week!


  1. You got some good ones! I've heard so many good things about A Woman in White and We Need to Talk About Kevin. They are both on my shelf at home but I haven't gotten around to reading them yet.

  2. Nalini SIngh, good choice, I am curious about that series

  3. I have really enjoyed the books I have read by Nalini Singh. I have only read one of her series books but I have been meaning to read more.

  4. Great books! Can't wait to see what you think!
    You have an award at my blog!

  5. Both The Woman in White and We Need to Talk About Kevin are on my TBR list - I'll be interested to hear what you think of them! The Woman in White, in particular, seems to be popular with many bloggers.

  6. All look great. Enjoy your loot!

  7. Kailia - thank you - much appreciated.

    Marg/Blodeuedd - sounds promising! :-)

    Claire/Kathleen - looking forward to both of them.

    Linda - thanks, I will!

  8. Ohhh I love Nalini Singh. I haven't read that series though. I LOVE the UK covers sooo much better than the US ones! Great finds! Hope you enjoy!

  9. I just finished The Woman in White a couple of months ago...I'll be looking forward to your thoughts on it when you finish. Enjoy all of your loot!

  10. I didn't know Singh was from NZ! Nice library loot.
