Another round of library loot this week! I don’t have too much to share, just three books. I’ve been requesting a lot of books, so I’ve been reading my acquisitions surprisingly quickly. I hope to get through the two YA books this weekend.
The library books are the three at the bottom:
- Empress Orchid, Anchee Min – I have really been eager to read more by Anchee Min ever since I finished Pearl of China. I have her novel Katherine on my TBR pile but this one has always appealed to me, too.
- Just In Case, Meg Rosoff – Continuing my small obsession, I appear to be determined to read all four of Meg Rosoff’s books in a couple of months. Actually, the release date of The Bride’s Farewell may prevent that, but I will definitely be reading it.
- The Forest of Hands and Teeth, Carrie Ryan – I’ve been wanting to read this since release and now I finally have my hands on it.
The top two are books that came to me in the mail. I thought it would be fun to add them in for once, too, so I’m hijacking my own post.
- Under Heaven, Guy Gavriel Kay – I have Nymeth to thank for this. I don’t recall if I ever mentioned that I didn’t get a gift from the Book Bloggers Holiday Swap. My Santa never responded to emails, and when I chose one of the donations to make up for it, that person didn’t respond either. So Ana generously offered to buy me a book herself, and I’m so grateful that as a result I have the newest release of one of my absolute favorite authors. Thank you, Ana!
- Virgin Widow, Anne O’Brien – Got this one for review. It’s about Anne Neville, and I will admit that I hesitated to accept it. But it’s my thing, it’s been too long since I reviewed a medieval historical fiction novel, and it’s had good reviews. It comes out in the UK later this month and will be published in the US later this year – I imagine I’ll be seeing a good number of reviews for it around then!
