- The Heart's Invisible Furies by John Boyne - from Hogarth (an imprint of Crown Publishing) for review, via Shelf Awareness

All of these books make me wish I had more hours in my day but The Third Level by Jack Finney is the most exciting of my purchases because he's a long-time favorite author. I've occasionally looked to see if there are any Jack Finney books I've missed, over the years, certain that I can't possibly have read them all. But, till recently, I've had no luck finding any that I overlooked. So, I'm not sure how I missed The Third Level but I can hardly bear sitting next to it without picking it up to start reading.

Last week was a deliberately light posting week. I figured that since I posted a virtual tsunami of book reviews the previous week, it would be a good idea to let frequent readers have some time to catch up if they so desired.
- Goodnight from London by Jennifer Robson
In other news:
I don't know exactly when I'm going to take my summer break from blogging, but I'm thinking probably mid-July? Maybe? I guess we'll just cross that bridge when we come to it. I'm not at all tired of blogging or in need of a break. But, I have other reasons for needing to step away - not only from the blog but from the internet - for a while. At any rate, a break is coming but not for at least a couple weeks.

What a great book stack and you definitely have enough there for your blogging break! :) Enjoy the books and look forward to the reviews.ReplyDelete
I certainly do! But, I have some other things ahead of these in the queue, so they'll have to wait their turn unless someone gets impatient. :) Thanks, Iliana!Delete
That's quite the stack! I don't know if I've heard of a single one but that's not unusual around your blog. I love reading your reviews though. You read a lot more sophisticated books than me and I'm constantly scribbling down titles to suggest to my book club.ReplyDelete
It's a heck of a stack. I may be a little embarrassed by the sheer quantity of books that walked in the door, this week, but I confess that finding a book in the mailbox or on the doorstep has never lost its thrill. Oh, thanks, how cool! I like that: "more sophisticated books." I feel like a lightweight, actually, so that's a very nice thing to hear. I'm glad you enjoy my reviews. Thanks, Jenny!Delete
