Library Loot: November 19

Posted November 19, 2014 by Lory in lists / 10 Comments

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. This week the linky is here.

In the Kingdom of Ice by Hampton Sides – I’m planning to finish up my Nonfiction November trio of American history books with this highly acclaimed title. I hope it’s as fascinating as everyone says!

Willa Cather novels – Coming up in December, I’m excited for Willa Cather Reading Week. I’m thinking I’ll read Sapphira and the Slave Girl, but this omnibus volume gives me options.

The Town House – The idea of this book, the start of a trilogy, is appealing to me: the history of an old English house and the people who lived there. Reminds me of the Green Knowe stories.

 Then, some rather random international fiction: computer science and genies in the quirky fantasy Alif the Unseen, a rich family saga set in Naples in My Brilliant Friend, and the animal fable The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly, translated from Korean.
I’m looking forward to these! What did you pick up this week?

  1. Other than Willa Cather, you've got some titles I'm not familiar with. They all look interesting. I'm excited to be taking part in Willa Cather Reading Week. I've chosen One of Ours (1922), and I recently finished A Lost Lady (1923) which was really good.

    • Cather has so many wonderful books! I've read One of Ours, but not A Lost Lady. It's also included in the collection I checked out, so I will definitely have a look at it.
