This week was quite a good week book-wise. I bought a few books for very little and got two books from Netgalley.
My library had a book sale this week and I actually found a few books! If you read this blog regularly you will know that our library sucks. The book sales normally are a joke; the available books are mostly computer books that were already outdated at the time of publication, let alone when the library sells them off. Or they are books like the one called “How to avoid huge ships” the reviews of which will give you entertainment for days! If you haven’t read them, you should. Anyway, I am digressing, because this time they did have fiction books and some good ones to boot.
All books are in German, but for better understanding I am listing the English titles.
- “Night’s daughter” by Marion Zimmer Bradley, a re-telling of The Magic Flute, my favourite opera.
- “Pavilion of women” by Pearl S. Buck. I have read this one about 25 years ago and really loved it. It’s a very nice hardcover book club edition from 1955. Somehow I think someone smuggled it on the shelves, it has no library stamps, stickers, marks, nothing. Even better!
- “Murder on the Flying Scotsman” by Carola Dunn. It seems to be a cosy mystery set in the 1920. Sounds nice and easy. It is the 4th book in a series, so if I like it, I can go for more no problem.
“Everything beautiful began after” by Simon van Booy from Netgalley. Everybody is raving about it and I must know why.
“Falling for me” by Anna David from Netgalley. This one sounded rather interesting.
