Booksie's Shelves, August 16, 2020


Week way too many of the virus and its isolation.  We're still staying at home and wearing our masks on the rare occasions we go out.  We did go for a lovely drive to a marina yesterday just to get out and see some different scenery for a bit.  Our daughter has moved home after her recent university graduation and we're waiting to see what will be next for her.  The Booker Prize nominees were released since I wrote and this year's thirteen candidates include several debut novelists.   I've read six of last years nominees and I own all the rest so I'll get to them sooner or later.  I was thrilled to see Anne Tyler in the list this year; she has been a favorite author of mine for many years.  Here's the newest books I've acquired:

  1.  Impersonation, Heidi Pitlor, literary fiction, sent for a book review
  2. The Merciful, Jon Sealey, legal thriller, sent by publicist
  3. Under Your Skin, Rose McClelland, mystery, sent by publicist
  4. A Crown Of Swords, Robert Jordan, fantasy, purchased
  5. His Only Wife, Peace Adzo Medie, women's fiction, sent by publicist
