Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief 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.
I am hurtling towards a large exam this Friday but have been stock piling things from the library to launch into as soon as that is done. And maybe letting a few of them distract me from studying a bit more than I should have…
More Was Lost by Eleanor Perényi – the famous garden writer’s memoir of her life in Central Europe immediately before and during the Second World War.
Letters from Yellowstone by Diane Smith – an epistolary novel about a group of naturalists – including a woman – working in Yellowstone National Park in the late 19th Century.
Cleopatra’s Sister by Penelope Lively – Thomas reviewed this recently and had me longing for a reread.
Walking to Camelot by John A. Cherrington – I am always up books about walking, in this case, a pilgrimage in southern England.
Love Notes for Freddie by Eva Rice – don’t know much about this but I’ve enjoyed Rice’s other books enough to try it.
I also checked out a handful of audiobooks:
Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters (read by Susan O’Malley)
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh (read by Ariana Delawari)
The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney (read by Mia Barron)
And so, so many of Elizabeth Peters’ Amelia Peabody novels (these have been the dangerous distractions from studying):
Seeing a Large Cat
A River in the Sky
The Falcon at the Portal
He Shall Thunder in the Sky
Lord of the Silent
