Library Book Photo for September

I didn't get on too well with my August library book haul but this heap picked up yesterday looks really good. As usual they are all books I'd tracked down and ordered online and there seems to be rather a lot!

Plenty of crime fiction this month including 2 British Library Crime Classics and others by Anne Perry, Anne Granger, Kate Ellis and Donna Leon. There are several  non-fiction namely 'Open House' by Jane Christmas, 'The Comfort Book' by Matt Haig, 'A Sparrow's Life as Sweet as Ours' by Carry Ackroyd, 'The Wood' by John Lewis Stempel, 'Mail Obsession' by Mark Mason, 'Under the Stars ' by Matt Gaw and something reprinted from the 40's - 'Where Stands a Winged Sentry' by Margaret Kennedy. There's one author - Jessie Greengrass - I don't know at all so not sure where I came across her details.

This lot should keep me busy for more than 4 weeks I think.

The library books I read last month are on the Books Read 2021 page and I also read one of my own books - bought during lockdown  - Rory Clements-' A Prince and a Spy' which was brilliant and I'm now loving 'A Place in the Woods' by Helen Hoover ... another purchase after reading about it on Mikis blog 'Farm's on my Bookshelf'.

  5. That looks a great haul Sue. A few there I wouldn't mind reading. I'm currently on Dark Tide by Philippa Gregory which is excellent. Let me know how much you enjoyed the Helen Hoover book - though it sounds you are thoroughly enjoying it already! They certainly struggled, and must have existed on very frugal rations.

  6. What a lovely selection of books. I have to admit to being a bit glued to my cook books at the moment, I love Nigel Slaters writings.

    1. Haha so am I, but I'm still reading about it and watching other people do it on tv, usually whilst munching on a packet of crisps or a banana!!

  7. You have a great selection of books. I'm currently spending most of my time closing down my gardens and preparing the house for the winter season. My reading will take first place when the weather shifts to cold and snow.

  8. That's alot of books. I need to finish reading one I'm part way through. I ordered a new book yesterday written by Max Lucado. It goes with his upcoming vertual event next Tues. He's a good pastor and I've read alot of his books. I added a new one book, written by friend, on my Kindle. I have books on there to read. I read some of it while on trip to Alaska. One area didn't have much internet. I'm glad you got books you wanted. Have a blessed weekend.

  11. I think I have read the Donna Leon book you have there. Currently I'm reading her latest, "Transient Desires". Put it on your request list ASAP as it is very popular.
