Good morning, fellow readers!
Here's what I've been up to on the blog . . . Last week I posted Fall New Releases I Can't Wait to Read. Are you looking forward to any new releases in particular this fall?I also posted reviews of these books:
Juliet's Nurse is new historical fiction by Lois Leveen, a re-imagining of the story of Romeo and Juliet from the perspective of Juliet's wet-nurse. Sarah Water's newest novel The Paying Guests, also released this month, is a story of love and longing set in 1922 London.
Here's what I've been reading in the past week:
I read the spooky classic The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson for the RIP IX Readalong, which will behosted by the Estella Society on October 1. I have been wanting to read Karen Joy Fowler's We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves since it was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. Review to come later, but I will just say for now that it was an intense and astonishing read!
And this is the book that's up next for me . . .
I will be reading Thomas McNeely's Ghost Horse for an upcoming tour on TLC Book Tours towards the end of October. This novel tells the story of a boy from a deeply troubled family in 1970s Houston, who dreams of creating a movie about a horse with supernatural powers. I took a quick peak at the opening chapter, and I have high hopes!
What's on your reading agenda this week?
