In My Mailbox (October 31st-November 6th 2010)
Everything I Never Wanted to Be by Dina Kucera (ARC) (Pump Up Your Book)
Salting Roses by Lorelle Marinello (ARC) (TLC Tours)
Stay With Me by Sandra Rodriguez Barron (ARC) (TLC Tours)
Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls
Center of Winter by Marya Hornbacher
The Collected Stories of Lorrie Moore
The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis
The books I bought all look awesome of course. I loved Hornbacher's memoirs, Wasted and Madness, so I figured it was time to spurge on her novel which the library doesn't have. It will be awhile til I get a chance to read Center of Winter but hopefully it is just as beautifully written as her non-fiction works.
This weekend besides schoolwork I'll also be enjoying Unstoppable in Stilettos, Arsenic and Clam Chowder and By Nightfall. A little ambitious I know, but there are just so many good books to read. Coming up for review next week I have the odd but awesome Of Bees and Mist, the non-fiction Unstoppable in Stilettos as well as the young adult Bones of Faerie and the romance All I Ever Wanted. Variety is the best right?
After getting a couple more ARCs in my mailbox I realize I have no idea what the book blog obsession with them is... they are not as pretty, not as sturdy and liable to typos- I definitely prefer finished copies, anyone care to explain?
