Some New Books

I hope you all had a great weekend. Ours was filled with a lot of rain and I’m guessing a lot of people had cabin fever because when we went to Barnes & Noble on Sunday afternoon it was packed. Had a hard time finding a place to sit although it does make me happy to see so many people hanging out at the bookstore.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAnyway, I have received a few interesting Advance Reader Copies and all of a sudden I’ve been requesting a lot of books on NetGalley. I think I kind of got hooked around the time we went on vacation. So this post is to show you some of the new books that have arrived at my door and. I will also tell you about the eGalleys but I am going to save those for a separate post.

Zagreb Noir. The Noir series published by Akashic Books takes the reader further into Easter Europe. From the back cover: In Zagreb, there is a meeting of a continental optimism and a Mediterranean relativism, and this is why the city has never found its peace. I can’t think of any books that I’ve read by Croatian writers so I’m really looking forward to this.

Gideon Smith and the Mask of the Ripper by David Barnett. This is a fantastical steampunk adventure that takes place in nineteenth century Britain. I think this may be part of a series but given that I don’t read many steampunk books I think it would ok to read this as a standalone.

The Drowning Lesson by Jane Shemilt. The Jordan family thought they would return from their gap year abroad enriched, better people, a closer family. Not minus one child. Oh this sounds like a good suspense novel.

So have you read any of these? Which one would you start with if you had these books?
