It’s always a bit weird to write these posts after already finishing one or more of the books mentioned. My usual library day is Saturday, so typically I’ll go to the library, write the post later that afternoon/evening, and then it goes up the next Friday.
This week I had to shift my library visit to Friday, and then didn’t write the post until Tuesday. By that time I’d already started and finished two of the books from this trip. Any guesses which two? (No fair peeking at the sidebar with my Goodreads widget which gives it away)
The Enneagram Made Easy by Renee Baron and Elizabeth Wagele
Leigh and Anne are to blame for me giving the enneagram another shot, after the first book I tried about it was so not the book I wanted it to be.
Four Kitchens: My Life Behind the Burner in New York, Hanoi, Tel Aviv, and Paris by Lauren Shockey
Love food memoirs, and I’m hoping this is a good one.
My Name’s Not Susie: A Life Transformed by Literacy by Sharon Jean Hamilton
Found out about this one through my friend Darcy.
American Nightingale: The Story of Frances Slanger, Forgotten Heroine of Normandy by Bob Welch
Sounds like just the sort of book I’ll love – a woman’s biography with key events taking place during World War II.
Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach
Back writes fantasy under the name Rachel Aaron, and I loved her Eli Monpress series. Despite my usual aversion to Sci-Fi, this seems like an easy way to get into the genre, through an author I like so much.
Mary, Bloody Mary by Carolyn Meyer
I’m close to burning out on Tudor-era historical fiction, but a focus on Mary is enough of a varied perspective that I’m giving this one a chance.
Shadow on the Crown: A Novel by Patricia Bracewell
No idea how I found this one, but the synopsis pulled me in and has me very excited to read it. Have any of my fellow historical fiction fans read this?
Invasion by Walter Dean Myers
Another one where I have no idea why it’s on my reading list, but there it is.
