Friday Finds - On Saturday

Another great week of books!

I received In the Kitchen, Booker-nominated Monica Ali's latest, from LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program. I didn't read Brick Lane but enjoyed the film and I'm looking forward to reading this one.

Sacred Hearts also arrived this week, Sarah Dunant's new novel about a 16th century Italian convent. I started reading the first few pages and it looks great.

I spied The Hakawati, by Rabin Alameddine, at a local indie bookstore last week and simply had to have it. Everyone says it's awesome so I hope to get to it soon.

Mario Vargas Llosa's The Bad Girl has been on my radar for a while and I picked it up at Harvard Book Store's fabulous warehouse sale last weekend.

Gifts of War, Mackenzie Ford's novel about World War 1, also found its way into my home. I haven't read a lot of books about World War 1 so it should be enriching.
