So let's play a little game. I'm calling this Bookish Roulette since it involves the book cover carousel on my Nook HD+ tablet. The recently opened apps and recently purchased books are all sitting up there gawking at me. If my carousel were to pick a book for me, let's see what they might be...
From the fiction camp, we have three fascinating-looking books...
The Book of Strange New Things, by Michel Faber. I've written enough about this one. You probably already know what it's about, but here's a short blurb:
Annihilation, by Jeff Vandermeer, is really calling to me for three reasons: it's short, it sounds fascinating, and it's shortlisted for the Tournament of Books.
We, The Drowned, by Carsten Jensen, isn't really my usual fiction, but I've been lusting after the cover for ages, and I snapped it up when it was on sale.
Non-fiction always sounds like a good idea when I'm not quite sure what to read.
Unruly Places: Lost Spaces, Secret Cities, and Other Inscrutable Geographies, by Alastair Bonnet. The title really sells it, right?
The Butterfly Mosque, by G. Willow Wilson. I posted about this one recently. A California girl converts to Islam. I want to know more!
Have you read any of these? Lusting after any of them with me?
