I received three books in the mail this week. Two of them were from the authors, asking me to review their books, so I have to admit that was pretty exciting. I've only been book blogging since mid-February, so hearing from other authors is pretty cool stuff for me :-) The third book I actually won from another author's contest, which was equally exciting because I almost never win anything. Very sad, I know. So let's get to it!
On Monday I received The Triumph of Deborah from Eva Etzioni-Halevy. I love the cover of this book and I'm excited to explore Biblical fiction--I've never ventured into that genre! Ms. Etzioni-Halevy kindly contacted me regarding this title, and as I'd already seen several good reviews of this book, naturally I was interested in checking it out!
I believe it was Tuesday or Wednesday when Rubies in the Orchard arrived. An employee from POM Wonderful contacted me regarding this title, and you can read my review from earlier today here.
And towards the end of the week I received the copy of The Love We Share Without Knowing that I won from Christopher Barzak's blog. I just started it today, and while it's a departure from what I usually read, the writing is beautiful! So keep an eye out for that review, coming soon!
