The Sunday Salon – June 29th, 2008

It’s been a busy reading week for me – I’ve read a book nearly every day.  Partly this is in response to the fact that I think I’ll finally be employed next week and partly it is because my TBR pile is growing MASSIVE with ARCs and my discovery of a used bookstore nearby.  I acquired 15 books this week, which is about what I’ve read this entire month, and on top of that I’ve got 4 coming from Amazon, one from a fellow LTer and blogger, and I hope some new ARCs turn up eventually as well.

Today I have been reading Lords of the North by Bernard Cornwell, number three in the Saxon Chronicles.  I reviewed The Pale Horseman just yesterday, and loved it so much that I had to start this one as soon as I got my hands on it.  Going well so far, I’m about halfway through and Cornwell is keeping it varied, interesting, and full of little tidbits designed for those of us who are really reading the series for an immersion into a past world. I’m hoping to finish it today, but I have no idea what I’ll dive into next. Perhaps The Heartbreak Diet for something short and entertaining.

Two great books I’ve read recently but have not yet reviewed: Aberrations by Penelope Przekop and The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti. Neither of these are out yet, but they were both really sweet and touching, similar in their protagonists’ pursuit of family but different in every other imaginable way. I’ll be interviewing Penelop Przekop soon and will be posting that and the review on my blog – keep an eye out!

I guess that’s it for my Sunday, see you all next week!
