Book Haul – March 5, 2019

After looking over all the books I received this week, I felt like it was time for a little book haul blog post! I think it was just a coincidence that I received so many books at once. It’s probably because of all the rain we’ve been having here that my mail is delayed. It’s probably because I live in California now.

Anyway, let’s get to the books. Some of these are promotional, some of them are for review, and others are because I’m curious. I want to expand my reading life, so I try to vary my reading.

The ones I’m most excited about reading are:

Whoops, that turned out to be way more than I expected this time around. Stalker is definitely one I’m super excited about. While I’m not a huge fan of thrillers, I do like to indulge in a crime fiction every now and then. I’ve heard a lot about Lars Kepler from Abby at Crime by the Book. I think he’s one of her favorite authors, so I’m going to take that advice and try this one out.

The Weight of a Piano is one I’m also really excited about. I saw Stacey at @prose_and_palate chat up this book the other day and it’s made me super interested to see what it’s about. The story is about…a piano. It’s about the person who first owned the piano and lost it while traveling from Russia to America and the current owner of the piano. The current owner is a little lost in life and needs to sell the piano she never learned to play.

My friend, Haley, is a huge fan of Han Kang and I’ve always wanted to read her work. Her novel, The Vegetarian, is the one I’ve heard of, but I’ve also heard good things about The White Book.

The ones I’ll be promoting later this month are:

I do want to mention that books I promote are books I actually want to read. I’m very careful about the books I request and just want to promote what I want to promote. These books I’ll gladly share a little of my page. Out of all of these, Field Notes on Love is the highest on my list, but I’ve been hearing some really big things about Polaris Rising. Summon and Smoke is also an exciting one especially since it’s the author who wrote The Paper Magician series.

Some surprise mail that I’m excited about:

Foursome is definitely high on this list. It’s a nonfiction novel on the lives of four very big artists. I might give this to my sister for her to read, but I’ll take a little stab at it first.

The Guest Book is a complete mystery to me, but for some reason I’m drawn to it. It says it’s a multi-generational story that hides a big secret with their grandfather. It sounds like of intriguing and it has been a while since I’ve read a historical novel, so I might check that out.

I hope you enjoyed this little list!

I received a copy of this book from the publishers for free. My opinions have not been influenced by the publisher or the author.
