Library Loot Monday

Library Loot is a weekly meme that is hosted by A Striped Arm Chair. It gives book bloggers an opportunity to share what fun books we have checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate visit A Striped Arm Chair and add your post link to their site. It’s a fun way to check out what other bloggers are reading.

Last week I read my first Georgette Heyer book (Sylvester) and enjoyed it so much I went a little crazy at the library ordering up their entire stock of Heyer books. I started reading The Grand Sophy the other day and am enjoying it so far. However, when she uses odd words like “animadverted,” I have to believe she kept a thesaurus nearby when writing her books and must have thought inserting these “smart” words would give the novel a more educated or old-fashion feel. Personally I think it's distracting and would prefer if she just said “complained”. Anyway, I still enjoy the story and look forward to reading the following books:
Charity Girl by Georgette Heyer
The Unknown Ajax by Georgette Heyer
The Convenient Marriage by Georgette Heyer
A Civil Contract by Georgette Heyer
The Nonsuch by Georgette Heyer
Frederica by Georgette Heyer

  1. i have never read a single Heyer. Maybe I shouldn't really confess to this, but I'm thinking I may need to remedy the situation pronto.

  3. Okay, I think I need to read some Heyer. If reading one book makes you take out SIX more, there's something good going on there.
