A month long blog event hosted by
This was a week of great posts. Some recalled my own favorite reads (or want to reads) of the year and some introduced me to new (to me) material. Others were pretty to look at and fun to read.
A couple called for immediate action:
Supernatural Enhancements by Edgar Cantero leapt out at me from more than one list and landed smack on my TBR list. This wasn't just because of the spectacular cover. It was the notes in "comments" that sent me to my library's online catalog.
Yippee!, it's available from another branch!
Dolce Bellezza's Favorites By a Theme featured my favorite kind of reading: books in translation (to English). I especially liked her Italian section:
~Swimming to Elba by Siliva Avallone
~The Potter’s Field hby Andrea Camilleri
~Ten by Andrej Longo
~The Days of Abandonment by Elena Ferrante
~The Parrots by Filippo Bologna
Ten caught my eye because it is a collection of interlinked short stories--a format I especially like. Alas, not available locally.
Placed on Amazon wish list.
All of the Six Degree posts were intriguing but Traveling With T's not only linked the books individually, it also had an overall theme of dysfunctional relationships. Loved it and her approach to it.
