This Just In: New and Recently Read Books


Recently Acquired: Walleye Junction by Karin Salvalaggio

I’m pretty picky when it comes to accepting advance copies for review. I don’t read as many books as other bloggers and have serious commitment issues when it comes to settling down with a book. Sometimes I jump around to three or four different books before settling on one.

But one of the publicity folks at Minotaur reached out to me a couple of months ago and asked if I wanted a copy of Walleye Junction for review consideration. Now I don’t normally read detective stories or even mysteries, but it sounds like a fun summer read. I started it earlier this month, and liked what I read. Hopefully I’ll get the chance to finish it soon!



Recently Read: Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier

I was lucky enough to grab a copy of this one at BEA this year and read it in one evening. Telgemeier is the author of Smile and Sisters, though I haven’t read either of those yet. This one doesn’t come out until September, so I’ll be holding my review until then, but spoiler alert– I enjoyed it!

New to the wishlist:

Fries! An Illustrated Guide to the World’s Favorite Food by Blake Lingle – Because I practically lived off cheesy chips (cheese fries) while studying abroad in England.

One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid – I can’t remember where I saw this book recommended, but the blogger loved it so much I instantly added it to my TBR.

The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye – kudos to the tireless publicity/marketing folks for managing to plaster this book cover all over my Twitter feed one day– okay guys, you got me. It’s on my to-read list.
