I had a birthday last week and got a gift card from my sister for Chapters ( a Canadian bookstore for real and online) and so have managed to pick up a few more books (which I swore I wouldn’t do until my TBR list got more of a dent in it) in addition to some I’ve found on my bookshelves that I forgot I had. Go figure. So here’s what I’m hoping to read soon:
Lion by Saroo Brierley
Wanted to see the movie and never did so am looking forward to reading the story.
The Girl in the Spider’s Web by David Lagercrantz
A modern story about hacking and crusading journalism, cybercriminals and spies.
An Officer and a Spy by Robert Harris
This is about the Dreyfus affair in France (1895), something I next next to nothing about until I read a book on this topic by Paulette Mahurin and found it such a fascinating chapter in history that I’m looking forward to reading more about it.
Final Stop, Algiers by Mishka Ben-David
This is an ARC edition from Net Galley that I hope will be as exciting as it sounds and will pretty much have to be the next book I read.
The Proposal by Lily Zante
This is the first book in A Perfect Match series but now has a prequel as well as sequels. Haven’t read this author before but am looking forward to it.
Ask Me Again — An Inspirational Romance — Book 1 by Kara Kinsley
Don’t know this author, either, but expect it to be a cozy read.
Stories from the War by Autumn M. Birt
This is a dystopian thriller (not my usual fare), first in the series, Friends of My Enemy. Sounds interesting so I’m looking forward to it.
Rosemary Cottage by Colleen Coble
This is part of the Hope Beach series and from the prologue, it may not be the cozy read I thought it.
Read any of these? Leave a note to tell me what you thought of it/them, then tell me what’s on your shelf. Thanks for dropping by My Bookshelf.
