I really didn’t want to go to the library this week but I had a couple of holds waiting for me that were about to expire, and well we can’t have that can we? So more new books to add to my stacks. So here’s what I got:
Alive at the Center is a poetry collection of contemporary poems from the pacific northwest. I like this from the back cover: “it’s a cultural conversation between urban centers whose unique perspectives share a common landscape.”
Carnival by Rawi Hage is the story of a taxi driver in a crime-ridden apocalyptic metropolis. Along the way he meets a book-loving passenger. This sounds totally quirky. Anyone read this?
The Sudden Disappearance of the Worker Bee by Serge Quadruppani. A mystery featuring Commissario Simona Tavianello. I love a good Italian mystery.
Lost by S.J. Bolton. Lacey Flint is becoming one of my favorite characters from a mystery series. I must know what she is up to in this, the third book in the series.
Calling Dr. Laura by Nicole J. Georges. I haven’t read very many graphic novels in the past couple of years and I do enjoy them so this one was a hold I placed after looking for some recently published graphic novels.
So that’s the latest haul. Now I need to get back to my current reads which I’ll tell you about soon.
