Here are the books that caught our eye this week:
First off, this cover reminds me of those IKEA catalogs I covet. I love getting new ideas on how to get the most out of our furniture in terms of design and storage. Regardless of that, Quirk Books always puts out books that are humorous in ways that I appreciate. This one is a haunted house story in a contemporary setting, in which workers are determined to find out what is happen in their furniture store overnight!
I loved the Blue Bloods series (Ok, I haven’t had time to read them all). But I want to see what happens when they grow up. Oliver Hazard-Perry is one of my favorites from the series, and it looks like he’s a big player in this new series. I love that it’s branching out in to an adult series.
Three friends leave everything to go on a trip around the world. Freinds and travel, two of my favorite things!!
Storm Surge: Hurricane Sandy, Our Warming Planet, and the Extreme Weather of the Future by Adam Sobel @ Book Dilettante.
Living in Florida, I’ve lived through some pretty awful hurricane’s, so of course this book interests me. I can’t wait to read what the author has to say.
Coastal Villages in Italy always attract my attention. Although the beautiful cover did play a part in catching my eye.
Set against the rich backdrop of World War II Italy, Garden of Letters captures the hope, suspense, and romance of an uncertain era, in an epic intertwining story of first love, great tragedy, and spectacular bravery.
Told with perfect rhythm and unyielding brutality, these stories expose unsuspecting men and women to the realities of nature, the primal instincts of man, and the dark humor and heartbreak of our struggle to not only thrive, but survive.
The title got my attention. I like short stories and these sound more than a little unusual.
