Library Loot


Library Loot is a new weekly event hosted by Eva at A Striped Armchair to share the library books we find each week.

I have had a fairly quiet week on the library front picking up just three books:





Behind a Mask by Louisa May Alcott

A lovely little Hesperus Classics edition for my 17th and 18th Century Women Writers Challenge.




The Portrait of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

I actually have taken out a lovely little hardback edition that has library stamps from before I was born. Why have I never read this book?! I am on the first page and already hooked. This one is  for the Victorian Challenge.



The Finishing School by Muriel Spark

Taken out for no other reason than wanting to read a bit more Muriel Spark. I’ve already finished it and written about it here.

  1. Dorian Gray is a very good book. I have never any Alcott except Little Women. I’m doing the 17th and 18th century women writers’ reading challenge too. Happy reading.

  3. I’ve been meaning to read more of Lousia May Alcott-I remember reading A Long and Fatal Love Chase in high school and being surprised by how different it was from Little Women!
