There weren’t a lot of odds ‘n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye, but these are worth your while:
- That’s the Way It Crumbles: The American Conquest of English by Matthew Engel – review — This looks like a fascinating book.
- G J Moffat – Q&A — Good interview on a book collecting electronic dust on my Kindle TBR shelf from the book blog From First Page to Last.
- Why Do We Quote — Book Blogger Literary Titan posts about another interesting looking book.
- A Book-ish Related Podcast Episode you might want to give a listen:
- Fredrik Backman Interview — on The Author Stories Podcast. I forgot to post this last week — whoops. Fascinating author, good discussion. Hank Garner’s a reliable listen anyway, when you get an author like this, it makes for a very good podcast.
- This Week’s New Releases I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:
- In the Still by Jacqueline Chadwick — a former forensic psychologist in a new country gets sucked into a murder investigation. I started this one this morning, really good so far . . .
- Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine — a thriller about a serial killer’s wife in the aftermath of her husband’s conviction.
- Heroine Worship by Sarah Kuhn — the sequel to last year’s Heroine Complex, now that her PA/friend is her crime-fighting partner, how does Aveda Jupiter deal with things?
- Lost Boy: The True Story of Captain Hook by Christina Henry — The story of Captain Hook, from his POV
and we even see some books without the word “Still” in the title…
