Only two new books for review this week, a diminishing trend that will likely carry me through the rest of the year. Between my already towering review pile, plus the 3 awards programs I'm comitted to, it's going to be a busy fall. That's not to say I can't be tempted by a book that pushes all my buttons, but I'm really trying to be selective. Christine Beatty's Not Your Average American Girl is a title I'm reviewing for Frock Magazine (which will always be a priority), and Thomas Caplan's The Spy Who Jumped Off the Screen is a title I got from NetGalley (which I can't review until January anyway . . . so I've got time).
Having said that, there was a charity book sale in the lobby of my office last week, so I did grab a few $1 paperbacks to fill some holes in my collection - Harshini by Jennifer Fallon, Freedom's Gate by Naomi Kritzer, and The Redemption of Althalus and Polgara the Sorceress by David & Leigh Eddings.
As always, I'm generally hopping between books as the mood grabs me. Teasing me for time and seducing my attentions this week are:
♥ Days of Magic, Nights of War by Clive Barker
♥ Alice in Shtuppingland by Barrie Abalard
♥ Fall Asleep Forgetting by Georgeann Packard
Well, that's it for now . . . what are you reading?
