B&N Finds

No, I didn’t make any purchases at Barnes & Noble over the weekend but I did find some books to add to my wish list. I’ve got a birthday coming up so I hope my husband takes note. heh.

The first book I was excited to see was the latest novel by Luis Alberto Urrea, Into the Beautiful North. I loved his book The Hummingbird’s Daughter which I read a couple of years ago, so I can’t wait to see what this wonderful storyteller has in store for us now. I also saw the new psychological thriller by Gillian Flynn, Dark Places. I was so tempted to get this one too. I read her award-winning novel, Sharp Objects earlier this year and thought it was quite an original thriller.

When I took a peek at the Craft section I took note of several new books on collage and mixed media works. I really like a lot of these but lately I feel like I keep seeing the same type of work. It’s lovely but I can’t help but wish for more variety. And, I think I found it in Creative Paint Workshop for Mixed-Media Artists by Ann Baldwin. It looks like it has a bit of everything with lots of great pictures and what seem to be easy to follow instructions. I don’t know how much longer I can hold off from buying this one.

Finally before we left I noticed the new Discover Great New Writers newsletter so I grabbed it and as I’ve been reading through it today I’ve already added more books to the list. Sigh.

Anyway, this week I’m participating in another Book Blog tour, I hope to have some reviews and of course update you on some of the books I’ve been reading. I’ve had some good surprises so that’s always a good thing.
