Library Loot

Library Loot I have been longing to do this meme since I first saw it, but this week was my first visit to the library all year (the horror!). My excuse is that my TBR box is stuffed to bursting with my recent acquisitions so I had more than enough to choose from at home. But it’s hard to resist the library’s siren call for long....

The Lace Reader
Lord John and the Hand of Devils
The suspicions of Mr Whicher Raising the Dead

My current loot:

The Lace Reader - Brunonia Barry
Lord John and the Hand of Devils - Diana Gabaldon
The Suspicions of Mr Whicher: A Shocking Murder and the Undoing of a Great Victorian Detective - Kate Summerscale
Raising the Dead: The men who created Frankenstein - Andy Dougan

I got rather gruesome in the non-fiction section, didn’t I?

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Alessandra.


  1. The subtitle of Raising the Dead has me really curious, since Mary Shelley was definitely a woman!

  2. I've heard a lot about The Lace Reader but I haven't picked it up yet. Sounds like you found some good ones :)

  3. I got some scary ones too. I don't think there's anything wrong with gruesome :)

  4. I read The Lace Reader and really enjoyed it! I hope you do, too!
