What's New On the Shelf


I've been busily adding to my bookshelves as usual. And there are so many great books to choose from right now. Always!

I was really excited to get my hands on a galley of Sana Krasikov's upcoming novel The Patriots, coming out in January. I was a big fan of her 2008 book of short stories, One More Year, and so far the novel is great. I started it as soon as I finished Ill Will this week. It's about several generations of a Russian Jewish family as they move across continents. The subject is a familiar one for me and her writing is really top-notch. Look for it!

Another galley I was excited to find is Selection Day, by Aravind Adiga. I don't even care what it's about. I'm a fan-for-life of his.

Then there's The Little Communist Who Never Smiled, a fictionalized account of the life of Nadia Comenici. It's a French novel I picked up at a local bookstore that just looked interesting to me.

Finally, I bought myself a special present- The Art of Howl's Moving Castle, a detailed book showcasing the gorgeous visuals of Hayao Miyazaki's classic film. I love the movie and the book is a delight.

That's it for me right now. What have you added to your bookshelf recently?
