Latest Acquisitions (May 2011)

I’ve received quite a few books this month which is awesome and means that I have a packed schedule until mid-June.

Book cover

Freya North: Chances – I’m finding Freya North to be an interesting writer but I’m yet to read a book of hers that I love completely. This is my newest attempt.

Book cover

Grainne Toher: Comings & Goings – Look at that cover! From the author for review.

Book cover

The Hippie: Snowflake Obsidian – This memoir reads like a novel and combines humour with sadness to project it’s theme of self-harm. From the author for review.

Book cover

J B: Zor – A novel of philosophy, this book appeals to the interest I have recently gained in the subject having studied Plato and Aristotle a few months ago. In addition to that the author sent the most brilliant email, the kind of pitch book bloggers are desperate for authors to write. From the author for review.

Book cover

Jan Van Mersbergen: Tomorrow Pamplona – This book looks fantastic, a road movie in book form, and I loved Peirene Press’s release of Beside The Sea, so Tomorrow Pamplona is a logical choice. From the publishers for review.

Book cover

Lisa Jewell: After The Party – Every year since 2004 I’ve bought Lisa Jewell’s release soon after publication, it’s been a sort of tradition for my spring. Then last year I didn’t get round to it so I’m trying to get back in the game.

So yes, a lot to get through, but I’m looking forward to it. The first received book for review is scheduled for two days before my final essay deadline for my current course so I’ve a lot to read in a short amount of time. I guess I’d better stop typing and get on with it!

I haven’t read any of those, but I hope you enjoy them all. The new Peirene Press book sounds interesting. Happy reading!

Charlie: The Peirene is the one I’m most looking forward to!

That’s a really nice spread of books! I haven’t even heard of any of those authors. Will look forward to your reviews!

Charlie: If you like chick-lit at all, I recommend Freya North. She can be rather dark, in other words she not as typically chick-lit as others.
