I really like this new trend of Sunday coveting posts, so I want to jump on the bandwagon, so to speak. Fun!
Lock & Key by Sarah Dessen because I’m feeling a YA reading binge coming on and you just can’t have enough Sarah Dessen around when that happens.
The Sister by Poppy Adams. I got an iPod Nano from Mother’s Day (LOVE IT!) so I started listening to some pod casts. One in particular I have fallen head-over-heels in love with; Books on the Nightstand. I downloaded all the pod casts so I could catch up. In one, Ann Kingman reviewed this book and it sounded right up my alley.
Sunnyside by Glen David Gold. Back, I don’t know, AGES ago, I got Gold’s Carter Beats the Devil for Christmas and LOVED IT. I was so excited when Alfred Knopf mentioned on Twitter this week that Gold had a new book out. I promptly put it on hold at the library. Dude, it’s about CHARLIE CHAPLIN. I cannot WAIT!
Natasha at MawBooks interviewed her husband Taylor about The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker about a week ago. It was hil-ari-ous. It really made me want to read this book. You should read it. The review I mean. And maybe even the book, it does sound good.
Lastly, and another from the Books on the Nightstand pod cast, is a graphic novel I had never heard of before. Pride of Bagdad by Brian Vaughn sounds rather like Maus and Persepolis in that it takes a true story and puts it into the graphic novel form. I really enjoyed both Maus and Persepolis.
Incidentally, you can listen and/or download the Books on the Nightstand pod casts on iTunes. I highly recommend them, for they are excellent.
I could probably go on for pages and pages, but I’ll stop here for this week.
