See, I am capable of exercising self-control in a library. Or I am when my non-reading To Do list is approaching morbid obesity. Slimming it down, though, will have to wait until I’ve finished The Little Stranger, which I’ve been longing to read since it came out. And which is going to be a good addition to my Historical Fiction Challenge list.

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


  1. I really want to read The Little Stranger, too! Hope it's as good as it sounds! Here's my Loot.

    Your loot looks fantastic! I also want to read Little Stranger, and London in Maps and Lost Languages look equally great. Happy reading!

  3. Lady Q: It's deliciously eerie! And it would probably be even better if I had some suitable gloomy weather to read it in.

    ifyoucanreadthis: Quality over quantity this time!

  4. I read Fingersmith and liked it, so I'm eager to try The Little Stranger.
