This Week in Books...


I had a book drought this week, but the postman came though for me on Thursday! I was feeling so sorry for myself on Wednesday that I placed an order at B&N.

Saturday:
--A Lucky Child: A Memoir of Surviving Auschwitz as a Young Boy by Thomas Buergenthal and Elie Wiesel from Hachette Books
--The Simplest of Acts: And Other Stories by Melanie Haney from the author herself
--Crank by Ellen Hopkins from Bookmooch

Thursday:
--Invisible Sisters by Jessica Handler from LibraryThing Early Reviewers
--True Colors by Kristin Hannah
--Illegal by Paul Levine from

Today I also got an unsolicited book on golf, but since I am not a golfer I've passed it on to a friend to help out with that review.

The last couple of weeks I've been the most excited about the WWII and Holocaust books I've been getting, but this week I was thrilled to received True Colors by Kristin Hannah. I loved Firefly Lane, it was one of my favorite reads last year, and I can't wait to get started on True Colors.

Oh yes! What a nice stack!! I have Kristin Hannah's new book. Isn't the cover beautiful?

I want to read A Lucky Child too. I'm not on the Hachette gravy train though! :-)
