Booksie's Shelves, September 17, 2017

Mid-September and fall is starting to arrive.  The temperatures are not as high and the humidity has taken a break.  The early trees have started to turn and mums are at every store.  Football is back, both college and professional and I spend a LOT of time watching football.  In our family, September is the month of celebrations.  In the span of three weeks, we have my husband's birthday, my son, daughter-in-law and two of the grandkids along with my son's anniversary.  It does heighten the sense that we live so far away but I'm grateful for the times we share with them.  I've been using the library which I have no business doing with all the books here but it's hard to go and not pick up a book or three.  Here's what has come through the door lately:

1.  The Welcome Home Diner, Peggy Lampman, women's lit, sent for book tour
2.  A Woman Is A Woman Until She Is A Mother, Anna Prushinskaya, essays, sent by publicist
3.  The Names Of Dead Girls, Eric Rickstad, mystery, sent for book tour
4.  Good Me Bad Me, Ali Land, thriller, sent by publicist
5.  Call Of Fire, Beth Cato, fantasy, sent by publicist
6.  The Flying Man, Roopa Farooki, literary fiction, purchased
7.  Eileen, Ottessa Moshfegh, literary fiction, purchased
8.  Ban This Book, Alan Gratz, literary fiction, sent by publicist

Here's what I'm reading:

1.  Wolf Hall, Hilary Mantel, hardback
2.  In The Cold Dark Ground, Stuart McBride, paperback
3.  Spoonbenders, Darryl Gregory, hardback
4.  The Names Of Dead Girls, Eric Rickstad, paperback
5.  Beneath The Bleeding, Val McDermid, audio
6.  Golden House, Salman Rushdie, Kindle Fire
7.  The Bear And The Nightengale, Katherine Arden, Kindle Fire

Happy Reading!
