Another week, another list of books to be excited about. How much better does life get, I ask you!
One of my student workers knows I love nonfiction, and she recommended Bonhoeffer to me. I remember when the book came out, and the cover just creeped me out. But now I think if I can get past the cover, I'll have quite a story.
Ran across info this week on the newest Erik Larson book, Dead Wake, about the Lusitania, to be released in March 2015.
Bookmammal has Some Luck on her Fall TBR, and when I read an excerpt, I got excited about it, too. The writing is excellent. While I thought I'd read Smiley, looking at her book list, I'm not sure I have. I do know I tried to read Moo several times, but finally gave up. Some Luck is the first in a trilogy about one farm family throughout a century. I'm from a long line of farmers on both sides of the house, so farm families have a very special place in my heart.
And then there are the dog books. You know I can't resist a good dog book.
Bespotted is written by Anne Sexton's daughter, Linda Gray Sexton. It's about the 38 Dalmatians she's opened her life to. I believe she is also a breeder of Dals.
Underwater Puppies is Seth Casteel's follow-up to Underwater Dogs. It's a book of photographs of puppies taken underwater.
