Caught My Eye, Week of 9/7/09

What books last week were added to my TBR list?

#1

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.——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

#2

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.

  1. Hi Sadie,

    I’m with Quirk Books. I came across your blog and saw that you plan on reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. I hope you enjoy them! I was wondering if you would like to be put on a mailing list to receive future news about the Quirk Classic series. In just a few weeks, we’ll be announcing the next title.
    If not, that’s okay. We won’t bug you again.

    If you have any questions feel free to contact the publicity manager,
    Melissa Monachello, melissa_m@QuirkBooks.com.

    Thank you for reading!

    Best,

    Jennifer Pacheco
