Wow, last week was busy! I’m still not too sure what went on – I always seemed to be working at something furiously! Hopefully, things will quieten down later this week. I didn’t get out to buy any new books (plus, the weather was awful) so I’m grateful for the two new ones I received in the mail. I’m looking forward to getting out this weekend – especially because it’s a long one!
House of Names by Colm Toibin was a wonderful surprise from Pan Macmillan (I love his books!). It’s out in May and is a retelling of the story of Clytemnestra (which I have to confess I’m not too familiar with). I’ll read anything he writes, so I’m looking forward to it.
Stars Across the Ocean by Kimberley Freeman was another great surprise from Hachette. Also out in May, it’s historical fiction about Agnes, a foundling. Agnes discovers a token from her mother on leaving the foundling home, which takes her on a quest to find her.
