What's New On The Shelf


So I'm going to continue to do these new-books posts but I'm changing it to my own personal meme, What's New On The Shelf. That way, I can do it any day of the week. If you want to join in, steal the button and leave me a comment so I know you're in. You don't have to, but I'd love to know so I can come visit and see what's new on your shelf!
 
Witches on the Road Tonight by Sheri Holman is this year's Shirley Jackson Award winner for the Novel and it just looks so darn good. I read the 2011 winner, Victor LaValle's Big Machine, though I didn't love it. This one, about an Appalachian family and terror, sounds more up my alley.

I was very pleased to receive from Hachette Book Group a galley of Kevin Powers' The Yellow Birds. I dipped into a store galley enough to know I wanted to finish it, but I had to give it back. Now it's mine! It's about the war in Iraq, and I'm fascinated by the war novels that have come out this year. Already the two I've read are going to be favorites, so I'm interested in this one, too.

Yok, by Tim Davys, is the final volume of the Mollisan Town Quartet series, which began with Amberville and its followup, Lanceheim. My goal is to finish the series this year.

My favorite used-bookstore find this week is Ernest Hemingway's A Moveable Feast, his memoir of living in Paris. How can I resist any longer?

That's it for me. What's new on your shelf this week?
