I’m still waiting for my Amazon box to arrive but I have received a few new ARCs lately so I thought I’d tell you about those today.
- How To Buy A Love of Reading by Tanya Egan Gibson. I remember seeing this book when it was first out in hardback and adding it to my list just for the title alone! Some of the reviews I read of it afterwards were not very glowing but I’m still up for giving this one a try.
- The Companion by Lorcan Roche. A darkly humorous story about the unlikeliest of friendships. Trevor is a cynical Irish film-school dropout who answers an ad to spend a summer serving as a companion to Ed, a New York city teenager with muscular dystrophy.
- Catherine of Siena by Don Brophy. Deeply researched and based on the latest sources, this history recalls Saint Catherine–as she would later be called–as a champion of peace who cajoled and, at times, begged popes, monarchs, and ordinary citizens to do her will.
Oh and actually I did get a bookmooch book too. I haven’t been mooching a lot anymore as it seems the books I want are never listed. Anyway, I got The Four Seasons by Laurel Corona which is historical fiction about Antonio Vivaldi’s muse.
How about you? Waiting on any boxes of books?
