Winter has come and the weather is at that point where my fingers start to get really cold when typing! I guess that just means more reading time because it’s raining and too cold to move… Luckily I did move to grab these two books in the mail and one I bought on the weekend:
The books in the mail came thanks to Hachette. First up, a new David Sedaris! Calypso is described as “beach reading for people who hate beaches”. David has bought a beach house, but realises you can’t take a vacation from yourself and that he is getting older.
A People’s History of the Vampire Uprising by Raymond A. Villareal sounds like it combines all the cool parts of genres – a vampire uprising, history being rewritten and a mad search by government agencies. But these vampires aren’t your traditional ones – they are gorgeous, strong and smart. Calling themselves gloamings, they become the aspirations of modern society. But what happens when one wants to enter politics?
I’ve been eagerly awaiting The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer for months. Of course, I had to buy it as soon as I saw it. Greer is a college student who hears Faith Frank, pillar of the women’s movement speak and is changed. When Faith gives Greer a career opportunity, she jumps but it leads her away from the life she thought she would have lived.
