New Books and To Be Reviewed

 In the mail:
I won the copy of Commuters from Kay at My Random Acts of Reading!  Thanks, Kay! 

 Barnacle Love--"a father and son narrate a revelatory, if disjointed, story spanning two generations of Portuguese-Canadian immigrants."  Publishers Weekly

 Heart of Lies --  "Leo Hoffman was born with a gift for languages. When his dreams for the future are destroyed by World War I, the dashing young Hungarian attempts to use his rare talent to rebuild his life, only to find himself inadvertently embroiled in an international counterfeiting scheme. " Product Description.

New library books.
 I've finished The Dark Vineyard: a Mystery of the French Countryside by Martin Walker and am excited to have found a new author and a new series that I like.

Currently reading This Body of Death: An Inspector Lynley Novel by Elizabeth George.  Lynley is returning to work, having finished his walking tour of Cornwall.

Still trying to catch up on reviews.  Blah!  If I would only review the book immediately, it wouldn't become such a chore.

Left to review:

His Majesty's Dragon :)
61 Hours :)
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest :)
The Dark Vineyard :)
Krishnamacharya: His Life and Teachings :)


  1. Oh I'm jealous - I want to read Commuters! I hope you enjoy it and I'll be looking forward to you review.

    I've only discovered Elizabeth George recently so I'm only up to book 4 in the series. I've got a ways to go but so far I love it.

  2. I haven't had time for Commuters yet, but I'm looking forward to it!

    I love Elizabeth George, but some of the books are much better than others. This last one is very good!
