Welcome to my weekly post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week.
Hi guys, happy Wednesday! If you’re joining in, don’t forget to leave the link to your post so I can come take a look later.
Now: And I Darken ~ Kiersten White
I found this pretty slow to start with and I’ve had no reading time this week which doesn’t help matters, but I’m well and truly into it now.
Then: Save Me, Kurt Cobain ~ Jenny Manzer // The Foreshadowing ~ Marcus Sedgwick
My review of Save Me.. went up on Saturday, and the Sedgwick one will be up soon.
I’m still thinking Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
New on the Shelves
Nothing this week. I’ve been very restrained. Move along.
Waiting on Wednesday
(linking up with Breaking the Spine)
The One Man ~ Andrew Gross
1944. Physics professor Alfred Mendl is separated from his family and sent to the men’s camp, where all of his belongings are tossed on a roaring fire. His books, his papers, his life’s work. The Nazis have no idea what they have just destroyed. And without that physical record, Alfred is one of only two people in the world with his particular knowledge. Knowledge that could start a war, or end it.
Nathan Blum works behind a desk at an intelligence office in Washington, DC, but he longs to contribute to the war effort in a more meaningful way, and he has a particular skill set the U.S. suddenly needs. Nathan is fluent in German and Polish, he is Semitic looking, and he proved his scrappiness at a young age when he escaped from the Polish ghetto. Now, the government wants him to take on the most dangerous assignment of his life: Nathan must sneak into Auschwitz, on a mission to find and escape with one man.
The One Man, a historical thriller from New York Times bestseller Andrew Gross, is a deeply affecting, unputdownable series of twists and turns through a landscape at times horrifyingly familiar but still completely compelling.
Expected publication: August 23rd 2016 by Minotaur Books
