Last Friday I shared a long list of books that I discovered at SIBA and that I am terribly excited about reading. Well, there is more. Check it out.
Comeback Love - Peter Golden: This is one of those books that I might never have considered. But Sarah Pekkanen blurbed it (love her) and I had dinner with Mr. Golden and he spend considerable time talking me down off my ledge about raising sons. Plus look at that cover. The story is about two lovers who came of age in the 1960's, and were separated by circumstance. Decades later, they find each other again.
The Blessed - Tonya Hurley: Again, not sure I would have considered this one, but I heard Ms. Hurley speak on a panel. And I got a good look at the cover, which took my breath away. It is a YA novel, first of a trilogy, about three girls, down on their luck, who arrive at a hospital to find that they might be the modern version of martyred saints.
Astray - Emma Donahue (October 2012): I think if you have read "Room", you probably would not hesitate to read this, no matter what the topic. This book was a rep pick, and describes a journey from Puritan Massachusetts to revolutionary New Jersey, from antebellum Louisiana to a Toronto highway, lighting up four centuries of wanderings.
Cover of Snow - Jenny Milchman (January 2013): Jenny was sitting at the same dinner table as Peter Golden, and completely charmed the bloggers with her sweet demeanor. Plus she loves Tana French. So. when she told me it took her 11 years to write this literary mystery about a woman seeking answers to her husband's suicide.
I'm curious if any of you have heard any of these? The hardest part is going to be how to decide which to read first!
