Week of 9 March 2018
The weeks fly by – I missed last week completely – so here goes!
Lots of new books!
A Long Way From Home by Peter Carey is described as “a wildly exuberant, deeply surprising new novel about a road race that circumnavigates 1954 Australia – an unforgettable journey into the lies and secrets of his homeland”. It’s gone to the top of my “to read” pile.
Winter Sisters by Robin Oliveira is new from the author of My Name is Mary Sutter. Takes place in the late 1800s and is both a gripping thriller and a family saga.
New in Paperback
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman is an enchanting contemporary interpretation of the Viking ethos.
Little French Bistro by Nina George is new from the author of The Little Paris Bookshop.
The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne is a story of Ireland from the 1940s to today seen through the eyes of one ordinary man.
Exit West by Mohsin Hamid was nominated for the Man Booker Prize and considered one of the 10 Best Books of 2017 by the New York Times Book Review.
Camino Island by John Grisham, but there’s trouble in paradise, in this fast paced tale of thievery and treachery.
Bring the kids in during March Break.
Klutz are always a great choice with everything they need to keep busy.
