What books last week were added to my TBR list?
The Magicians by Lev Grossman. I read and really enjoyed Codex, also by Grossman. This was Amazon’s best book of August 2009, and is described as “Harry Potter discovers Narnia” by Publisher’s Weekly.——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–
September 15 Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters is released, and it makes it feel ashamed that I haven’t yet picked up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. So the goal is to do side by side reviews with the original Jane Austen classics. See the Book Trailer. ——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-#3
A Duty to the Dead by Charles Todd is the first in the Bess Crawford Mystery Series, and is based around, obviously, Bess Crawford, a WWI British nurse. Sounds like a combo between a mystery and historical fiction, plus I always like reading about the history of medicine.
