Check It Out

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOh the week is flying by and I haven’t even told you about the books I checked out last weekend. Aside from picking up two holds, I also found some interesting books on the new books shelves that I couldn’t put back and had to add to my book bag.

Here’s my haul:

The Last Policeman by Ben Winters. I know some of you have read this one and have enjoyed it. Melody recently reviewed the trilogy and I am excited to read it. I need to start this one soon because I’m discussing it with my book group in a couple of weeks.

Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has the Time by Brigid Schulte. Ok, I borrowed this one on the title alone. I’m thinking maybe I’ll find a new strategy to help me feel more in control but first I guess I have to find the time to open the book? Ha,ha.

The Heart Has Its Reasons by María Dueñas. From the summary: A talented college professor in Madrid, Blanca Perea seems to have it all. But her world is suddenly shattered when her husband of twenty years leaves her for another woman.

The Seventh Day by Yu Hua. From the summary: Yang Fei was born on a moving train. Lost by his mother, adopted by a young switchman, raised with simplicity and love, he is utterly unprepared for the tempestuous changes that await him and his country.

Three Light-Years by Andrea Canobbio. From the summary: Cecilia and Claudio are doctors are the same hospital. They eat lunch together almost every day; they talk, sometimes even share secrets. Each is enmeshed in a complicated, painful relationship that has technically ended but isn’t really over.

All of these sound so good don’t they? Let me know if you’ve read any of these and what you thought. I wish I could start one now but I’m trying to get a bit further along in my current reads, which I’ll tell you about in my next post because I’ve got some good ones going on.
