Latest Acquisitions (May – June 2014)

Given my post about scaling back, it may be obvious to say that these acquisition posts are likely to be less frequent in future, but I will continue to write them when appropriate. As always I’ve left out books that I’ve already reviewed.

Book cover

Ai Mi: Under The Hawthorn TreeMonday’s post covered this quite extensively.

Book cover

Andra Watkins: To Live Forever – When I saw the cover of this book, I couldn’t help thinking I’ve seen it on many blogs before. I don’t know if this is correct, and I’m not sure whether or not I’ll like the book, but agreeing to review it seemed the right thing to do.

Book cover

Joanna Hickson: The Agincourt Bride – I plan to purchase a print copy so I’m seeing this free download as purely for earlier-than-would-be-otherwise review purposes. Thanks to Jessica for the head’s up.

Book cover

Mingmei Yip: Peach Blossom Pavilion – This appears to be similar to Memoirs Of A Geisha, which I liked. Downloaded with my Asian lit plan in mind.

Book cover

Raffaella Barker: From A Distance – My latest check of Netgalley yielded this. Another of my plans is to read more literary fiction as it’s fallen by the wayside.

Have you read/do you hope to read any of the above?

These are all new, exciting authors to me. I look forward to seeing what you think!

The one by Ai Mi is the only one I knew because it is also in Spanish, but I haven’t read any of them.
Hope you enjoy them!

Thank you for the mention Charlie. I hope you like your new books. I am looking forward to reading The Agincourt Bride and Peach Blossom Pavilion.

These sound like great choices, Charlie. I like the sound of Peach Blossom Pavilion. I’ll have to look for that one.
