Some good finds at the library today.
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. It’s Halloween today and it seemed a very appropriate read.
Cleopatra’s Daughter by Michelle Moran. I’ve been wanting to read this one for a long time. I loved The Heretic Queen and have high hopes for this one too. She’s got a great writing style.
The White Queen by Philippa Gregory.
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater.
Heretic by Bernard Cornwell. Lately it seems I’ve been on a Cornwell kick. I like his writing a lot and decided to peruse the stacks to see what other books of his the library has. I picked up Heretic and now after taking a closer look at it — it’s book 3 in a series. I don’t like to read books in a series out of order so I may have to make a trip back to the library next week to see if they have 1 and 2.
Kristin Lavransdatter: II the Mistress of Husaby by Sigrid Undset. Eva at A Striped Armchair reviewed this series recently and it sounded wonderful. I put a hold on it and the library gave me book 2. So when I go back to pick up the other Cornwell books, I’ll have to see if they have book 1.
I have a long trip for work coming up and, with the addition of a few more books, should have enough to see me through a long work trip.
Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!
