I received three books in the post this past week, and I have to say they all look very good. Add them to last week's haul, plus the other books residing in Mt. To-Be-Read pile and I'm feeling somewhat overwhelmed with all the choices. The fact that I'm reading even more slowly than usual recently doesn't help the feeling that I wish I could be reading them all Right Now. But anyway, here's what I got:
Away by Amy Bloom, which I won from Sandy at You've GOTTA Read This! during Book Blogger Appreciation Week. Thank you Sandy!
Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 by David Petersen. I read the first one, Mouse Guard: Fall 1152, during the spring read-a-thon, so now that this second volume is out I thought it would be appropriate to read during the upcoming fall read-a-thon.
The Summer of the Ubume by Natsuhiko Kyogoku. I stumbled upon this one recently and the fact that the author's been called the "Neil Gaiman of Japanese mystery fiction" caught my eye. I'm hoping to read it this month as it would be perfect for the R.I.P. Challenge and the October task for my own Hello Japan! mini-challenge.
Have you acquired any new books lately?
