New Books

Well, not really new books as my recent acquisitions are from BookMooch and Half Price Books, but still new books to me. My mooches are:

Dissolution by C.J. Samson. From Publisher’s Weekly: Murders on the grounds of a monastery, 16th-century intrigue, an unconventional sleuth-readers might wonder if this is a knock-off Name of the Rose set two centuries later, but Sansom’s debut is a compelling historical mystery in its own right, with fewer pyrotechnics and plenty of period detail. Sounds interesting doesn’t it?

Wideacre by Philippa Gregory. From Publisher’s Weekly: Gregory’s full-blown first novel is a marvelously assured period piece, an English gothic with narrative verve. I haven’t read anything else by Gregory aside from The Other Boleyn Girl but I’ve meaning to read more.

I made a quick trip to Half Price Books the other day and used my 40% off coupon to get Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I loved Purple Hibiscus so I’m looking forward to this story. The other book was Ordinary Springs by Lenore Hart.

Better yet, I still have coupons to use the rest of the week so I’ll be taking advantage of those. Anyone else have coupons for Half Price Books?
