This is kind of the addendum to my earlier IMM. This is everything else I have gotten over the last couple of weeks.
First up, I won a copy of The Looking Glass Wars from a giveaway and I wish I remember the blog I won it from. I usually save the emails, but for some reason this one disappeared. So if it was you, please comment so I can give you credit!!
I can’t wait to read these. Zombies!! Brains!!
I also must give thanks to Macmillan and Farrar, Straus, and Giroux for a physical ARC of All These Things I’ve Done (Birthright).
From NetGalley, I have been approved to read:
1. Light from a Distant Star: A Novel by Mary McGarry Morris
2. The Night Strangers: A Novel by Chris Bohjalian
3. The Goat Woman of Largo Bay: A Novel by Gillian Royes
4. The Lantern: A Novel by Deborah Lawrenson
5. The Sixes: A Novel by Kate White
6. Ambitious (Kimani Tru) by Monica McKayhan
7. Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard
8. Shattered Dreams: A Midnight Dragonfly Novel by Ellie James
From Simon & Schuster’s Galley Grab, I picked out:
1. Past Perfect by Leila Sales
2. Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez
Then, yesterday I took a trip to Books-A-Million. I seriously intended to not spend that much, but when you stick me in front of a bunch of shiny and new books, I guess I can’t resist. I learned the hard way. And now I am on a serious book buying ban until I get through some of these. Anyway, here is what I bought:
1. Song of the Silk Road by Mingmei Yip
2. 13 Treasures by Michelle Harrison
3. How to Be an American Housewife by Margaret Dilloway
4. The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly
5. The Street of a Thousand Blossoms by Gail Tsukiyama
6. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle: A Novel by Haruki Murakami
7. The Tower, the Zoo, and the Tortoise by Julia Stuart
8. A & L Do Summer by Jan Blazanin
9. Swamplandia! (Vintage Contemporaries) by Karen Russell
10. Shanghai Girls: A Novel by Lisa See
11. Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok
12. The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender
13. The Girl in the Garden by Kamala Nair
See what I mean? The good thing is that they were all softcovers except the last one, which means they were cheaper. Still a small fortune, hence the book buying ban. I am also extremely lucky that I have an amazing husband who supports my addiction and eccentricities. So that’s it for the last couple of weeks. What’s in your mailbox?
