First, the book news and giveaways:
Natasha at MawBooks reviewed “Monique and the Mango Rains” this week and is offering to donate one dollar to the clinic Monique and Chris worked at for each comment to her post. I am doubling the donation for anyone that also leaves a message on my post about it here. Read my review of “Monique and the Mango Rains,” or go straight to Natasha’s post here.
I finished “Far World: Water Keep” the absolutely fantastic first book in the new young adult series “Far World” sometime before last Sunday, and I am having a contest to one lucky reader to win a personalized, signed ARC. This could be the next Harry Potter-like phenomenon, so you are going to want this ARC. The contest requires a bit of creativity, but I’m sure you saloners are up to it!
My reviews for this week (click on the cover for the review):
My reading this week:
American Savior by Roland Merullo
Matrimony by Joshua Henkin
The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti
The Hunt for the Seventh by Christine Morton Shaw
Before anyone gets too excited, two of these books were relatively short (200, 250 pages) young adult books, so those went very quickly. Plus, I had a nice commute to work on the train on Friday and a drive to Indianapolis (I was in the passenger seat) to work on “The Good Thief”. Still, I’m pretty happy with the way my reading went this week. I liked some of the books better than others, but there wasn’t a bad one in the bunch.
