After finishing a book a few days ago I’m now in the mood to borrow more. Here’s what I grabbed today at my terrific small town library. Behold, a little nonfiction, two works of historical fiction and some Scandinavian crime fiction. As you might suspect I’ll be applying all of these towards any number of my beloved reading challenges.
- The Vertigo Years: Europe, 1900-1914 by Philipp Blom – Yet another book I started once yet never finished.
- Euphoria by Lily King – Set on the island of New Guinea in the 1930s, word on the street is this is an excellent novel.
- Jade Dragon Mountain by Elsa Heart – Who can resist a murder mystery set in 1708 on the Chinese-Tibetan border?
- 1222 by Anne Holt – A Norwegian whodunnit for Rose City Reader’s European Reading Challenge.

I’ve heard good things about Lily King’s novels so I am especially looking forward to hearing what you think of this one. Actually, all 4 look good.
Cool! I can’t wait to start it!
These all sound excellent. I really enjoyed Lily King’s short story collection, Five Days in Winter, but haven’t read her novels yet. Something to look forward to!
