Library Loot

Library Loot

In the Woods
The Fool’s Tale
White is for Witching

In the Woods - Tana French
The Fool's Tale - Nicole Galland
Lustrum - Robert Harris
White is for Witching - Helen Oyeyemi

We have fiction! My last few Library Loots have been heavy on the fact, but this week I finally had a good hunt through the fiction section. (Well, last week, actually. But Friday night my computer was driving me nuts - hopefully someone at the Tech Support Forums can help me sort out the mess. And last night I was at the Queensland Ballet’s version of Swan Lake. Russia, Rasputin, Romanovs ... I was a little sceptical when I read the program but it worked out quite well.)

And I now have almost a complete list for the Historical Fiction Challenge. I’d hoped to find something set in ancient Rome and something else mediaeval, and the library obliged beautifully.

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

    White if For Witching looks very interesting. The cover just grabbed me. Can't wait to see how you felt about it.
    Wanna Check Me Out?

  2. I think I might finally read In the Woods this fall and I hope to get to White is For Witching at some point!

  3. I loved In the Woods, and have just picked up Faithful Place by the same author!

    I had the opposite reaction to The Fool's Tale. I don't often DNF a book, but this was one of them.

    I hope you will enjoy your loot!
