Friday Finds

New books this week- some good stuff!

Spiced, a memoir by pastry chef Dalia Jurgensen, arrived at work early this week; I've actually already read it and I can tell you it's fun. It just came out yesterday. Jurgensen has a blog you can read at

The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, by Katherine Howe, also arrived. It's about the Salem Witch Trials. I know many of you have already read this one through the Barnes and Noble First Look program; I'm looking forward to it as well.

I Saw You..., a comics anthology edited by Julia Wertz, and Valley of Strength by Israeli author Shulamit Lapid arrived via a gift certificate purchase this week; really excited about both of these.

From a Sealed Room by Rachel Kadish came via Bookmooch, and Annie's Ghosts arrived courtesy of LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program.

All in all, some good stuff!
