My library is going to be closed for a couple of days for the holidays and what do I do? Go check out books to make sure I have material to get me through the holiday closure. You would think I didn’t have piles of books to read already! Ha.
I may not go to the library all the time but I think I kind of freak out when I know it’s going to be closed. Do you do that?
Anyway here is my library loot:
- Cold Killing by Luke Delaney. From Booklist: First-novelist Delaney, once a London homicide investigator, has blended the police procedural with the psychological thriller. The result is a tense, fast-paced, believable look at London policing, complete with many fascinating details.
- Don’t Ever Get Old by Daniel Friedman. This is a mystery featuring a 87-year-old retired cop. This one is one for my book group meeting in January.
- The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud. I think this one seemed to be a big hit around the blogosphere. I’m really looking forward to this one and hope I can finish it before it has to go back.
- Evil Eye; Four Novellas of Love Gone Wrong by Joyce Carol Oates. How many books has this author written? I swear it seems like there’s a new book by her all the time. I’ve really enjoyed some of her books so I think this one will be interesting.
- Life After Life by Jill McCorkle. I tried to read this one earlier this year and had to return it before I finished it so I hope to get to it this time. I think I’m going to really enjoy this one.
- Evil and the Mask by Fuminori Nakamura. I’ve started this book which is going to count for my Japanese Literature reading challenge and I have to say it’s creeping me out. I’m only about 30 pages in and am on the edge of my seat wondering what’s going to happen next.
What books have you checked out lately?
