My first (official) Library Loot post, but I figured today was the best day to start as I went to the library and took out seven books to celebrate being done with end-of-term papers. Okay so I went to bookstore first but the lack of books in English depressed me (they don´t have the second Flavia book yet, a major let- down because this was to be my treat for finishing the papers).
I doubt that I will be able finish all these till the end of the month but they all sounded so tempting. I think they acquired a couple of great books in my month-long absence, which was a nice surprise. Any thoughts on where to start?
The Other Half Lives (Sophie Hannah)
Her books seem to be everywhere recently and if she really writes as well as the blurbs promise, I think I´m going to have a fun evening with this one.
Lady Audley´s Secret (Mary Elizabeth Braddon)
Victorian sensation fiction and a pretty cover.
The Lace Reader (Brunonia Barry)
Pretty spine 🙂 Obviously I´m not all superficial when it comes to choosing books.
Cider with Rosie (Laurie Lee)
Cosy Cotswolds! Have read a good review of this somewhere but I can´t remember which blog, sorry. At least the recommendation stuck.
Union Street (Pat Barker)
Was lured by the Virago apple and thought I might want to read something heavier.
The Woman´s Room (Marilyn French)
Should have read this one ages ago!
Her Fearful Symmetry (Audrey Niffenegger)
Have absolutely no expectations after reading lots of meh reviews. But since the library (finally) bought it I thought why not.
