Mistress of Mellyn | Victoria Holt
post image

Look what just came to my desk for consideration. Four ivory matching 1972 Doubleday gothic romances by Victoria Holt. Mint condition. Shall I add them to the library‘s collection? #romance #oldschool #oldcoolbooks #librariansoflitsy

Leniverse Squee! 😍 I've never read any Victoria Holt, but they are such a pretty set! 1y
thebluestocking Yes please!! I ❤️ Victoria Holt. I was obsessed with her books as a teen. My favorite is On the Night of the Seventh Moon. (edited) 1y
jillrhudy @thebluestocking that one does look good! 1y

Aimeesue No, those look like TERRIBLE books. You should probably take them home to evaluate them first. 😁 1y
jillrhudy @Aimeesue They bear Very Careful Examination. 1y
Aimeesue Serious Study, even! 1y
jillrhudy How else can one know if they are suitable for unserious readers of midcentury gothic schmaltz? 1y

Mittee | Daphne Rooke
post image

I know the #oldcoolbooks challenge is over but wanted to share my finds from the library sale today.
Anyone familiar with Mittee or Tess of the Storm Country. Apparently the latter was made into a film. I have to say I mostly picked them for their covers.

DivineDiana Not familiar, but do love the covers! 2y
Louise Something about those covers is reminiscent of a more innocent Age, don't you think? Perhaps that's why we are so charmed by them. 2y
rubyslippersreads ❤️❤️❤️ the cover of Mittee! Tess sounds familiar, but I haven't read either one. 2y
Linsy I‘ve never heard of them, but I love these covers as well!! I‘m torn. I can‘t decide if I love the top right or bottom one more. 😍🤩😍 2y
