Library loot/August 12




Hosted by Eva at A Striped Armchair and Marg at Reading Adventures






A bonanza! The newest in the Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes series, and the latest Maisie Dobbs.

Addendum: It was the oddest thing. I read a bit of The Language of Bees, and wasn't interested in reading any further. We meet Holmes' son with Irene Adler. I didn't enjoy the character or his wife's history. Loved Among the Mad.

  1. That is an excellent library day. You inspired me to request the Language of Bees from my library. Thanks!

  4. I've only read one book by Laurie King, but I do love a good mystery! Have fun with your loot, Nan.

  5. Jen, I'm loving it so far. We meet Holmes' son, Damian!

    Sherri, my goal this year has been to write a book report on each book I read. So far, so good. :<)

    JoAnn, if you lived closer I'd hop in the Beetle and bring you over the first five Maisie books.

    Dolce B., I love the Russell/Holmes books so much. If you do read them, the first one is The Beekeeper's Apprentice.

  6. Library Days! How wonderful :)
    Just finished Olive Kitteridge on your recommendation and I loved it. (A library book I carried with me to vacation in Vermont).

  7. Susan, I am so happy you liked it. I wonder where you were in Vermont. We aren't very far from the border. :<)

  8. Nan - Did you receive the package I sent? I was looking through old posts and just found this one, which of course makes me regret sending what I sent ... oops. :) Feel free to pass it along to someone else who might enjoy it!

  9. Heather, I haven't received a package yet. I think the mail is slow because of storms. If I'm guessing right that it is the King book, because we share a love of the Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes books, well I am completely thrilled. I can't tell you how many times I've thought of going in to the library and picking it up again. And then I thought I'd wait and buy it in pb. It's funny, I had the same reaction when I first began the Locked Rooms book. I just couldn't read it. Then a few months later, I couldn't put it down!! So, dear one, I thank you for your special thoughtfulness. I'll let you know when it comes. (unless a postal worker is reading it first!)

  10. No worries! I'm sure it will get there eventually. :) And I'm glad that you do want to give it another shot. It wasn't my favorite of the series but I DID enjoy it, and I hope you do as well!
