Checked Out

So much for reading books from my bookshelf. I went to the library again over the weekend because I wanted to get some videos but who only goes to the library to get videos right? I actually had a good time wandering up and down the stacks and ended up checking out a few books.

The first one is The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett. I don’t think I even need to tell you what this one is about right? Everyone seems to love it and I hope I will too.

My other pick was A Trace of Smoke by Rebecca Cantrell which has gotten a lot of praise for being an atmospheric tale of suspense and murder.

The other find, which I hadn’t heard about before is The Possession of Mr. Cave by Matt Haig. A novel which focuses on the relationships between parents and teens.

Next up is The Scapegoat by Daphne Du Maurier. This is a tale of stolen identity and loaded with suspense. I really hope I can read this one before it’s due. Last year I read her novel My Cousin Rachel which I thoroughly enjoyed so I am hoping this will be just as good.

Finally I was intrigued by Girls of Riyadh by Rajaa Alsanea. This bestselling novel recounts forbidden details about the private lives of four young women from Saudi Arabia’s upper classes.

Have you read any of these? Which one should I start with first?
