Great New Books

In Book Reviews, Uncategorized on August 28, 2012 at 2:23 pm

I’m currently reading Where’d You Go, Bernadette?, by Maria Semple.  I’ve gotta say, she’s really good.  The different points of view are a little distracting at first, but once you fall into the rhythm it’s easy to jump back and forth.  I think my favorite line so far was about people making creepy food requests.  I can so see me doing that.

I’m also reading Catered Halloween by Isis Crawford to get me in the mood.  Some of the dialogue is a bit trite, but overall it’s getting the job done.

My husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I said “books” and he rolled his eyes.  Like books can’t be a “real” gift.  It’s really all I want.  Attica Books has some good titles out right now, and I’m not just saying that out of self-interest.  Theft by Chocolate by Luba Lesychyn and A Woman of Temperament (which I frequently misspell, but really, how often am I spelling it?) by Lucille Duff Gordon. 


If you read any of these, let me know what you think.
