A few days ago I made little stacks of books that I wanted to read for the upcoming weeks and into April. I get such a rush when I gaze upon them....definitely a strange person!! Anyway, here is what I've added to those stacks this past week. I'm struggling with finding a happy medium with the amount of books that I bring in and how many I can actually read before they're due!
Marriage and Other Acts of Charity - Kate Braestrup
I read her first book, a memoir of sorts, Here If You Need Me, and loved her honest voice. I'm really looking forward to reading this one as she shares her life with us. I'm also partly blaming Kathy (Bermudaonion) for her awesome review which nudged me into requesting this one from the library!
The Last Song- Nicholas Sparks
I saw the trailer for the movie based on this book and honestly, it made me want to read it!! I need a Sparks book every now and again!
Nicholas Sparks's new novel is at once a compelling family drama and a heartrending tale of young love.
Anthropology - Dan Rhodes
Blame for this book goes to JoAnn (Lakeside Musing). Her review of this book immediately had me putting a request in for it!! I so can't wait to read these short 101 word stories.
Faceless Killers (Wallander #1) - Henning Mankell
Nan (Letters From a Hill Farm) raves about this writer and his books, so I felt the urgent need to experience it for myself!! With her help she has guided me to this book...thanks Nan!!
From Goodreads: At once a gripping mystery in the classic detective tradition and an incisive commentary on contemporary society, Faceless Killers introduces Swedish Inspector Kurt Wallander, a cop whose personal life is in shambles. Tenacious and levelheaded in his sleuthing, Wallander has to deal with an eruption of antiforeign sentiment as he searches for brutal killers.
