Booksie's Shelf, February 17, 2014



This past week was snow time in North Carolina.  Since we in the South don't do snow, that meant being snowed in for several days.  I love that hushed time with no outside pressures to get to appointments and run errands.  I spent most of the time reading, of course!  At the end of the week, I got a wonderful box of books from the review site I write reviews for, Curled Up With A Good Book, which as always was exciting and welcomed.  I got two books from Algonquin Books, which is one of my favorite publishing houses, having a North Carolina connection and ties to Southern authors.

Here's the new books that came in this week:

1.  The Headmaster's Wife, Thomas Christopher Greene, literary fiction, sent by publisher
2.  Three Princes, Ramona Wheeler, fantasy, sent by publisher
3.  Missing You, Harlan Coben, mystery, sent by publisher
