This Week In Books(Day after Bastille Day edition)…
Well, I lied. Last week I promised a lot to report with the book haul this week. Not so much. But a good variety and more on their way so…. here goes
Borrowed from the store: Zilch.
Bought from the store: Yay! I found some pennies to purchase a few this week. Small potatoes mass markets, but still- keeping the book biz going a little bit. Mr. Monk on Patrol- Lee Goldberg A Night Like This- Julia Quinn The Map of Time- Felix J. Palma(the steampunk fascination continues unabated).
Received from publishers for eventual review: Harmless as Doves- P.L. Gaus(somehow they have the idea that I like Amish mysteries. Have no idea why they believe that to be so. LOL). Thank you to Penguin for the book. Let The Devil Sleep- John Verdon. I loved the first book in this series by him- it was in my top books last year- now I have a galley of the new one. I am beyond thrilled. Thank you to Crown for taking notice of the Goodreads reviews for his previous book and sending me this one.
Won in a giveaway: (Shelf Awareness)- The Taker by Alma Katsu. I tried to start this one already but the cage is rattled with my dad’s health issues and I cannot concentrate on any heavy reading right now. The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving- Jonathan Evison. This looks mondo bizarro, I think I will dig it(I hope I will dig it).
Pre-Author Signing Galley: (Harper Collins, my homies): Up Jumps the Devil- Michael Poore. Oh boy, we’re having him at the store on 8-24 and this book looks fucking awesome. Weird and bizarre. And the reviews have been stellar. I cannot wait to start this one!
