It’s been awhile since I did a books post! Well I haven’t stopped receiving them, I’m just sometimes a bit slow at getting these posts together. Here’s what’s made its way into my mailbox since I last posted on April 15th nearly a month ago.
These are the three books from when I was last planning to do a Books post but never did sot hey made it into one photo. Actually, I took of photo of the second two and never posted it and then the first one arrived so… yeah, not the most efficient at staying up to date. But I love to share my books regardless. The Language Inside by Holly Thompson is a lovely story because not only is the book in VERSE (yes!) but the wonderful author actually saw my rave review of her debut, Orchards and offered to have her publicist send me the followup. Which makes me sad that I haven’t gotten to read more than the first fifteen pages yet, but it’s very high on my list and I just need to finish a few of the books I have in progress first. Hopefully I’ll even have Holly answer some questions on the blog in the future.
Golden is the third novel by Jessi Kirby, who I have been meaning to read since her debut, Moonglass, came out but haven’t yet, and this book is definitely getting the best reviews so far of her three, so I am very excited to dig into it. I recently read Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz so it is nice to be reading some of my books from Simon and Schuster Canada and I hope to get to this one soon as well.
Paper by Ian Sansom showed up courtesy of William Morrow (a division of HarperCollins) and it’s a non-fiction title that sounds very intriguing as I always love learning the history behind an important invention, and as a book-lover and writer, paper is especially close to my heart!The Illusion of Separateness by Simon Van Booy is for an upcoming book tour and I am very excited to read it. I adored Van Booy’s two short story collections and his first novel, Everything Beautiful Began After, so I’m sure this one will be just as poetic and breath-taking.Finally, I received a copy of He’s Gone by Deb Caletti from Random House Canada. Having read one of Caletti’s YA books previously, I am definitely interested in checking out her adult debut.
Basically, a great batch of books and not enough time for reading. However, it’s Friday night and the start of the weekend so hopefully I’ll have a chance to do some reading over the next couple days so I can get to these lovely books sooner rather than later. I can just feel them calling to me…
Have you gotten any lovely books lately? Any suggestions for which of these I should pick up first? I admit I’m biased towards The Language Inside which I’ve already (barely) started, but I’ll probably share my review on Writing Whimsy when I’m done.
