Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire of The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief that encourages bloggers to share books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, check out those blogs on Wednesdays to link up your post.
Here’s my loot for this week:
Old Filth, The Man in the Wooden Hat, Last Friends – Jane Gardam
Now that Jane Gardam’s trilogy is complete, I want to read it all together.
Le Grand Meaulnes – Alain-Fournier
I came across this French classic when collecting titles for my Classics Club list. I’m trying to read more literature from other countries.
Leave It to Psmith – P.G. Wodehouse
I love Jeeves, but some say Psmith is even better, so for my “Classics of Comedy” category this was a natural choice.
The Crystal Cave – Mary Stewart
After enjoying some of Stewart’s romantic suspense books, I decided to finally tackle her Arthurian saga, which somehow escaped me at the time when I was reading all the Arthurian books I could get my hands on.
Drawn from Memory – Ernest Shepard
The Captive Reader made me aware of the existence of this Edwardian-era childhood memoir by the accomplished illustrator. It looks lovely.
All of a Kind Family – Sidney Taylor
The Midnight Garden‘s next Classic Readalong book is finally one that I have actually never read. I’m looking forward to discovering this well-loved series.
