I had another happy book week last week with four, shiny, new books coming to live at my house. Two are non-fiction this week and two are fiction so a nicely balanced week.
I scored a LibraryThing Early Reviewer copy of A Final Arc of Sky by Jennifer Culkin, a lovely memoir written by an emergency flight nurse. I've already read this one and enjoyed it quite a lot.
From Putname Books came Spiced: A Pastry Chef's True Stories of Trials by Fire, After-Hours Exploits, and What Really Goes On In the Kitchen by Dalia Jurgensen. And since I love to read about food almost as much as I love to eat it, this should be a satisfying one.
The Wish Maker by Ali Sethi came from Riverhead Books. This is a novel about a fatherless boy being raised with his female cousin in Pakistan, and given my fascination with Pakistani culture, it is right up my alley.
And finally, Shaye Ayreheart Books sent Angels of Destruction by Keith Donohue, a novel about a woman who takes in a young girl who appears on her doorstep, passing her off as her granddaughter and the child of her daughter who had run off and disappeared ten years prior. Finding out the answers to the questions this one raises should be a good ride.
As always, if you want to see what others found in their mailboxes this past week, check out Marcia's blog at The Printed Page. And don't forget to stop by below and enter my book giveaways!
