Latest Acquisitions (February – March 2015)

As I said last week, one of the things about keeping track of my reading, my new method of working, is that I’ve a better idea of how much I can take on each month. I’m happy to say this set of acquisitions reaches as far as June. (Why it’s taken me so long to realise what so many others do in such shorter time is something I’m trying not to think about…)

Book cover

Emma Healey: Elizabeth Is Missing – I’d passed this over before as the cover didn’t catch my eye; then I learned what it was about.

Book cover

Jessie Burton: The MiniaturistJudith’s review stayed in my mind, and when I saw the UK cover I knew it was time.

Book cover

Laura Barnett: The Versions Of Us – Any book that is compared to Sliding Doors is going to appeal to me.

Book cover

Mikhail Elizarov: The Librarian – A book about books was always going to catch my attention, and when I discovered it wasn’t your usual description of ‘librarian’ I was more intrigued.

Book cover

Nancy Bilyeau: The Tapestry – The third book in Bilyeau’s excellent Tudor reformation series; I’ve been looking forward to this for a while.

Book cover

Stefan Mohamed: Bitter Sixteen – A fantasy book with an awesome title (though do be prepared for spelling errors as I’m likely to call it Bitter Greens); the original draft was written when the author was sixteen; looks pretty good.

Have you read/do you plan to read any of the above? Which books have you acquired recently?

I hope you enjoy your new books. I am intrigued by The Versions Of Us as I really like Sliding Doors.

Several of these titles are on my wish list, but I have not read any of them. I look forward to reading your thoughts on them when you get to them, Charlie.

When I think about what I was writing at age 16… Terrifying that there’s that sort of talent around despite what one assumes is not a massive amount of life experience. I feel very old. ;-)

I enjoyed The Miniaturist, though maybe not quite as much as other people have so I’ll be interested to hear what you think of it. I have a copy of The Tapestry too and can’t wait to read it – I loved the first two books in the series!

This is a great collection of new books! I especially look forward to your review of The Miniaturist.
