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. 

 Only three books this week as I'm sticking to my intention not to overload myself with huge piles of books waiting to be read.

Midwinter Sacrifice by Mons Kallentoft......another new Scandinavian crime writer .......very creepy cover!

11/22/63 by Stephen King.....receiving a lot of positive reviews so want to read for myself.

Thomas Hardy - The Time-Torn Man by Claire Tomalin.....biography - all the googling and researching I've been doing on TH for the Classics Challenge has inspired me to want to read more about him.


  1. I want to read 11/22/63 but I have already overloaded myself with books! I'll manage to read it someday. Enjoy!

  2. Yep, that's a suitably creepy cover on Midwinter Sacrifice. Even though it freaks me out, I have to say that Scandinavian crime writers consistently seem to have some of the best covers around. I suppose the beauty of being part of a major publishing trend is getting money and attention thrown at your books!

    Claire Tomalin is a masterful biographer and Thomas Hardy is certainly an interesting subject. I have always found him more fascinating than any of his books.

    Enjoy your loot!
