Library Loot


Library Loot is a weekly event hosted by Eva and Alessandra to share the library books we find each week.

i’ve taken out three books this week:


A House to Let by Charles Dickens

Another Hesperus Classic. I loved The Haunted House so I ordered a couple more of Dickens’ portmanteau novels. This was the first to arrive and it looks very promising.




In This House of Brede by Rumer Godden

I loved Rumer Godden’s books for children but I forgot until quite recently, when I noticed her name on the credits of the film “Black Narcissus” that she wrote for adults too.




The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie

I read Laura Thompson’s excellent biography of Agatha Christie last year and it inspired me to reread a few of her books. When I saw a nice facsimile edition of Mrs Christie’s first novel on the library shelf it seemed like a good place to start!

  1. Lynda: It was lovely when the name Rumer Godden clicked. I had forgotten her children’s books and when I looked her up some lovely memories came flooding back.

    Samatha: I’m thinking about joining the project that is reading all of Agatha Christie in order. Trouble is, once I start i know I’m going to be drawn to certain favourites out of order!

  2. All of those covers are great! I’m a fan of Christie as well…I’m not a huge Dickens fan, but I’ve never heard of A House to Let, so I’ll be looking forward to your review!
