Library Loot: February 10th

Before we were inundated with all of this snow, I nipped out to the library and picked up a couple more books.

Library Loot is hosted by Eva at A Striped Armchair and Marg at Reading Adventures.

Krik? Krak! by Edwidge Danticat

– I’d heard of Haitian author, Edwidge Danticat before, but hadn’t read one of her books.  The recent tragic events in Haiti brought the author to my attention again and this book looked interesting.   I love the title and the cover.

Black Mountain Breakdown by Lee Smith

– I loved Lee Smith’s epistolary novel Fair and Tender Ladies, which I read a couple of summers ago.  As with that novel, Black Mountain Breakdown circles around the life of an Appalachian woman.  Fair and Tender Ladies‘ protagonist Ivy Rowe was a fantastic character, and I hope this book has a similarly engaging protagonist.

  1. I could use a snow day to stay home and read! I look forward to hearing your thoughts on Krik? Krak!

  2. I read Breath, Eyes, and Memory by Danticat and really enjoyed it but it was before I began blogging. I should give her other books a try. Enjoy your finds!

  3. It seems timely to read Danticat right now.

    Enjoy your loot.
