Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader 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.
Lots of easy reading this week, which is exactly what I need. I am into my second week at my new job and I am really enjoying it, but learning so many new things every day is tiring. I know once I’m through training and have settled in I’ll have more attention left at the end of the work day (maybe even enough to blog), but for now, easy books are best.
There is such thing as too much D.E. Stevenson (especially since I just read two other D.E.S. novels over the weekend) but the Inter-Library Loan system does not take that into account. And so I have three D.E.S. books waiting for me:
Five Windows by D.E. Stevenson
Gerald and Elizabeth by D.E. Stevenson
The House of the Deer by D.E. Stevenson
Airs Above the Ground by Mary Stewart – Vanessa March, two years married and very much in love, is propelled to Vienna by a shocking discovery. In her charge is young Timothy Lacy, who also has urgent problems to solve. But what promises to be no more than a delicate personal mission turns out to involve the security forces of three countries, two dead men, a circus and its colourful personnel and the famous white stallions of Vienna.
Rose Cottage by Mary Stewart – When Kate Herrick’s grandmother asks her to travel down from Scotland to her childhood home in Todhall to retrieve some papers and family mementoes before Rose Cottage is sold, Kate is happy enough to go, but curious as to the changes she may find there. Widowed in the recent war – this is the summer of 1947 – and comfortably settled now in London, she is in some doubt as to how the village will receive her. Rose Cottage – a tiny thatched dwelling with fragrant roses in the garden – is unchanged, and the villagers seem friendly. But there is evidence of a break-in at the cottage, and then her nearest neighbours, three elderly ladies from what the villagers call ‘Witches’ Corner’, come with tales of night-time prowlers in the cottage garden, and even ghosts. In the process of solving the mystery, Kate finds romance.
