Library Loot – 15-21st May

Well I have just managed to sneak in before another week passes by. In the last week I have been into the library twice. On Saturday to renew a book and I also managed to leave with another one.

On Fishing by Brian Clarke
Now this is not my usual read, but I spotted it, picked it up to see what it was about and it looked appealing.

The Sister by Poppy Adams
Then today was the monthly book group meeting. A week earlier than usual because next Monday in the UK is a public holiday.

The book we discussed was The Behaviour of Moths by Poppy Adams. We had almost a full house and whilst there was two readers who thought it was OK, but not fabulous there were some who thought it great. To see my opinion keep reading  – a little later this week the review will be up!

Our next read is this fascinating account by William Dalrymple and is appropriately timed, given my interest in India.

I also managed to leave with these two books, one of which is a reborrow and a re read based on a few blog posts from Kristen at Finding Eliza
