Today I want to show you some of the new books that I have on my list now.
I’ve been looking around Netgalley more than I should, as you see, but the the good news is that I have discovered that there are books in Spanish, and well, you can imagine the rest.
Let’s take a look.
A book I purchased
The princess bride (William Goldman): This is my favourite book in the world and I already have it in Spanish, but I think that if you have a super favourite novel, you are allowed to buy it in all the editions and languages you want, what do you think? 😉
If you want lots of laughs, just read this book. It is terrific.
This is the British edition of the book; I saw it in the shopwindow of a tiny book shop near the cathedral, and I couldn’t resist the temptation.
Ebooks from Netgalley
Bellman and Black (Dianne Setterfield): I was pre approved for this book and I couldn’t say no. I’ve read different opinions about it, but I think that the negative ones are negative because they have compared this novel with the author’s previous one, The thirteenth tale, and I haven’t read it, so I think I can like Bellman and Black.
My brief history (Stephen Hawking): Several popular science books by Hawking are on my list, so when I saw this one on Netgalley I applied in order to know him better. I thought it would be an interesting reading.
I shall be near to you (Erin Lindsay McCabe): I love stories set during war time, and this one is about women who went to the front dressed as men to be near their husbands. I already know I will love this book.
The distance between us (Reyna Grande): this one is in Spanish, but it is also in English, and that’s why I show it on this blog. I don’t read a lot of Latin American authors, and I would like to change that.
Books from the authors/publishers
Where the wildflowers grow (Vera Jane Cook): I got it for a book tour. I have discover southern fiction thanks to this author (The story of Sassy Sweetwater) and I liked it, so I also wanted to read this one.
The cats of Savone (David-Michael Harding): This is a compillation of short stories, and the funny thing is that, after reading the book, you can vote for your favourite story for the author to develop a full novel from it. I have read How angels die also by Harding and I loved it, so that’s why I accepted this one without any hesitation!
