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.
How To Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran – I can’t wait to start reading this. I know from Moranthology that I won’t always agree with Moran’s views but I do love her writing and find her very engaging.
The Real Jane Austen: A Life in Small Things by Paula Byrne – this new biography has been getting some very positive reviews and I am always up for anything Austen-related.
Circles of Time by Phillip Rock – Last week I picked up The Passing Bells, read it the same day, and then pretty much ran to the library that night as soon as I discovered that this book – the second in the Greville Family saga– had arrived for me. Of course, I read it the next day. Set in the early 1920s, Circles of Time revisits the surviving characters from the first book and looks at how both England and Germany are adjusting to the changes wrought by the First World War. Wonderfully entertaining historical fiction.
