What's New on the Shelf 8/17

Just a couple of new things this week. I'm trying to slow down my book buying. I know I keep saying that! But I'm out of credit at my favorite used bookstore and I need to save money for vacation in October and other things.

I picked up A Kind of Intimacy by Jenn Ashworth, because she has a new book coming out soon that I've dipped into and I want to read her first book first.

Booker Prize winner Aravind Adiga's second novel just came out in paperback. I don't know much about it but it's by the author of one of my favorite books of the last few years, The White Tiger, so I figured it's worth the risk of picking it up.

I also have a ton of fall galleys I'm looking at, but maybe I should do a separate post on those. Yes, I think I will, next week, and that way you can tell me what you're intrigued by, too.
