Happy Sunday, fellow Saloners. It’s been a really slow week for me, both reading and on the blog. I think that’s because of the read-a-thon last weekend. I finished Let the Northern Lights Erase Your Name, and haven’t really started reading anything since then.

I did, however, do a bit of book-buying this week, and over the course of the week, I came home with several new treasures:

From Barnes and Noble (and yes, there were several trips)

  • Admission by Jean Hanff Korelitz
  • Drood by Dan Simmons
  • The Courts of Love by Jean Plaidy
  • The Queen’s Secret by Jean Plaidy
  • To Hold the Crown by Jean Plaidy

Waiting in the mail:

  • The Tory Widow by Christine Blevins
  • The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

I’m really excited about all the books, but I did let out an actual squeal when I saw my review copy of The Angel’s Game. I was thinking about trying to wait until the release date was closer before I read it, but I don’t think I’ll be able to wait. I’m just much too excited about it.

Oh, I almost forgot. I did post on Thursday asking people to recommend a book to me. I have lists and lists of books I want to buy, but the reality is thst my lists sometimes overwhelm me. So I am asking for recommendations to help me kind of focus (not that I need to buy more books, given that my current TBR count is somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 books). You can see my post here.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday. I’m planning to do a bit of cleaning, then hopefully I’ll be able to spend quite a bit of time reading as well.
