Friday Finds-No More Vlogs for Awhile!

As of Tuesday, I'm starting a full-time temporary job at Harvard University, so my blogging time will be severely limited. So it's going to be awhile before I have time to do a vlog again. My excuse for today? Bad hair.
On to the books!

The most exciting new arrival is Caleb's Crossing, Geraldine Brooks' new novel, out next month. Like lots of readers I was a big fan of People of the Book and I'm enjoying this new one very much. I'm almost done- I should finish today- and I'll have a review soon. It's very different from People but I think this book will be very popular.

Donna Freitas's young adult novel The Possibilities of Sainthood is one I've been trying to find for a while. It's a story about an Italian-American teenager who wants to be world's first living saint. I love books about saints and Catholic saint-culture and even though it's YA I know I'm going to enjoy this lauded novel.

Last and by no means least is Sandro Veronesi's award-winning Quiet Chaos; I couldn't find a good picture of the U.S. cover so I used the French version. It looks like a great book and I can't wait to read it. I might have to put a month aside just for Italian books soon, I have so many appealing ones in the wings.

That's it for me- what's new on your bookshelf this week?
