Latest Acquisitions (February 2011)

After having not posted one of these since September, I deemed this month worthy enough, receiving-wise, to reintroduce the format. This is the “month of the review”.

Book cover

Amelia Edith Barr: A Daughter Of Fife – Looking online for public domain books, this Victorian-era novel caught my eye.

Book cover

Ella Drake: Silver Bound – Having not quite reached my goal of reading outside of my comfort zone, I thought I’d give this book a try. It appears to blend sci-fi with western.

Book cover

Elle Newmark: The Sandalwood Tree – For review from the author, a novel about colonial India.

Book cover

Elizabeth Chadwick: Lords Of The White Castle – It was about time I read another Chadwick, having read my first and only two years ago. I’m particularly interested in this one for research purposes.

Book cover

Katharine A. Russell: Deed So – For review from the author, a historical novel sent in the 1960’s, a decade I’ve not yet conquered in books.

Book cover

Kimberly Derting: Desires Of The Dead – From Headline publishers, this was a lovely surprise to receive as I’d read and reviewed the first book in the series, The Body Finder.

So a semi-eclectic mix this month, and many books to look forward to reading. What have you bought/received recently?

Enjoy your new books! Other than the cook books I ordered the other day (that doesn’t count, right? :P), I am Being Good.

Charlie: Oo, I like the capitilisation of the statement! I don’t know about cook books not counting – I’ve a few books I love that are reference and I’m itching to review them. However if including the cook books negates the I am Being Good factor then for bookish well-being they should not count ;)

I just received The Sandalwood Tree as well, and I’m really looking forward to it!

Charlie: Good to know of someone else who’s signed up for it! I look at the blogs listed on the site and have rarely heard of any of them, it feels so weird.
