Hello my fellow bookworms, it has been a while but as I only got my hands on a handful of new books each month, I decided to wait and combine my post for April and May. So here are the goodies I have added to my Kindle and shelves:
The Testament of Loki by Joanne M. Harris
In April, I was thrilled to get my hands on, via NetGalley, copies of historical mystery The Poison Bed (a new direction for Fremantle, who is best known for her Tudor novels) and The Testament of Loki, the second book of Harris’ brilliant re-imagining of Norse Gods and legends. Having previously enjoyed both these authors I look forward to reading more.
Vanishing Grace by Philip Yancey
Also in April, from World of Books, I ordered a bargain, second-hand copy of this Christian non-fiction. In which best-selling evangelical author, Yancey discusses whatever happened to the good news? This is my May read for my church’s book club.
A Symphony of Echoes by Jodi Taylor
Then at the beginning of May, I snapped up this, the second book in Taylor’s The Chronicles of St Mary’s series, for just 99p from Amazon (UK), which I put on my wish list after really enjoying the first book, Just One Damned Thing After Another last year.
The Memory Tree by John A Heldt
Next I was contacted and happily accepted a review copy of Heldt’s new time-travel novel, which is the second book in his Carson Chronicles series. I have enjoyed several books from Heldt’s earlier American Journey series, so I look forward to trying more.
The Little Shop of Found Things by Paula Brackston
Bellewether by Susanna Kearsley
And finally, but certainly not least I acquired, from NetGalley, copies of these two brand-new, dual-narrative/time-shifting novels… if you read this blog regularly you will know this is like one of my favourite genres AND that Kearsley is one of favourite authors! I am immensely looking forward to reading both of these!
Do you fancy any of these? What new books have you got recently?
