Welcome to my weekly post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week.
Happy Wednesday to you all! December tomorrow…Yayyyyy!
Here’s what I’ve been up to this week…
Now: The Silent Songbird ~ Melanie Dickerson
YA. Castles, a The Little Mermaid retelling – how could I resist!?
Then: The Christmas Town ~ Donna VanLiere
This was a nice heart-warming story if not a little bit farcical.
Hmm, I’m not too sure, either Christmas Under a Starlit Sky by Holly Martin, Pagan Portals: Merlin (see below), or The Christmas Party by Georgette Heyer – it depends on my mood!
Waiting on Wednesday
(Linking up with Breaking the Spine)
This is another 2017 title I’m looking forward to. It’s a debut too.
Keith Rosson paints outside the typical genre lines with his brilliant debut novel. It is a gorgeously written book that merges the sly wonder of magical realism and alternate history with the depth and characterization of literary fiction.
Expected publication: February 21st 2017 by Meerkat Press
New on the Shelves
(Linking up with Stacking the Shelves)
I didn’t buy or borrow any books this week.
I love Arthurian mythology so I’m really interested in reading this new angle on the wizard and the era he he became a legend of.
Bestselling author Elen Sentier looks at Merlin in history and mythology and considers his continuing relevance for people today.
Best known as the wizard from the Arthurian stories, Merlin has been written about for well over 1000 years and is considered to be both a magical and historical figure. Over the centuries many people have had relationships with Merlin and in this book the author brings him to life for us once again in yet another way and from yet another perspective.
So that’s my week in books, now why don’t you tell me about yours!?
Leave your answers or the link to your post in the comments and I’ll take a look 🙂
