Friday Finds- A Book I'm In and A Bunch of Other Stuff

This week's book haul includes a book I've already read, some review copies and some serendipity.

You or Someone Like You, by Chandler Burr, came out last spring; I reviewed it and interviewed the author. I bought the paperback because I'm in it- my interview with Burr was excerpted and published in the P.S. section at the back, along with an interview by fellow blogger Carla Castelar of Bibliolust. Thank you Chandler & HarperCollins for this honor and congrats to Carla!

Yosl Rakover Talks to God, by Zvi Kolitz, is a Holocaust novella I found at a local used bookstore. Looks fascinating.

The Wrong Blood, by Manuel de Lope, comes out in September and came to me in ARC form courtesy of Other Press.

Wherever You Go, by Joan Leegant, came to me for review from the author.

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, by Aimee Bender, and Blue Nude, by Elizabeth Rosner, are two recent releases I picked up this week at the bookstore.

Have you read any of these? What did you think? What's new on your shelf?
