Booksie's Shelves, September 3, 2016


September is here and there is hope of summer heat and humidity dissipating in the coming weeks.  Here in North Carolina we've had a fairly brutal summer and fall can't come too soon to suit me.  I spend most super-hot days inside so you'd think I would have read more than ten books in August but Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Acorn TV takes up a lot of reading time.  Here's the books that have come through the door lately:

1.  Echoes Of Family, Barbara Claypole White, literary fiction, sent by publisher
2.  The Sound Of A Wild Snail Eating, Elisabeth Tova Bailey, nonfiction, sent by publisher
3.  The Orphan Mother, Robert Hicks, historical fiction, Vine review book
4.  All That Man Is, David Szalay, literary fiction, Vine review book
5.  The American Girl, Kate Horsley, thriller, sent by publisher
6.  A Gentleman In Moscow, Amor Towles, literary fiction, sent by publisher
7.  Father's Day, Simon Van Booy, literary fiction, Vine review book
8.  Ruby, Cynthia Bond, historical fiction, Vine review book
9.  Mateship With Birds, Carrie Tiffany, literary fiction, purchased
10.  The Raven Boys, Maggie Stiefvater, fantasy, purchased
11.  The Dream Thieves, Maggie Stiefvater, fantasy, purchased
12.  Blue Lily, Lily Blue, Maggie Stiefvater, fantasy, purchased
13.  Debt To Pay, Reed Coleman, mystery, sent by publisher
14.  Downfall, J.A. Jance, mystery, sent for book tour
15.  The Buried Giant, Kazuo Ishiguro, literary fiction, purchased
16.  The Sympathizer, Viet Thanh Nguyen, literary fiction, purchased

Here's what I'm reading:

1.  The Flamethrowers, Rachel Kushner, Kindle Fire
2.  Dissident Gardens, Jonathan Lethem,  Kindle
3.  The Lore Of The Evermen, James Maxwell, audio
4.  Moriarty
, Anthony Horowitz, paperback
5.  The Bird Eater, Ania Ahlborn, audio
6.  
Old Man River, Paul Schneider, paperback
7.  Mr. Splitfoot, Smantha Hunt,  Kindle Fire

8.  Skin, Mo Hayder, hardback

Happy Reading!

A lot of your books are new to me. Got to go investigate them further. It's always a good thing to find new authors.
