What an interesting adventure. Set in Australia in the 1950‘s it follows three characters as they enter the Redex Trial, a brutal race around the continent and the adventures of a lifetime. Now to read some Peter Carey back stock.

Absolutely love this book! Lord of the Flies with girls that grow into rebel warriors. I've hand sold 3 this week. The audio production is brilliant.

Faith LP: A Novel | Jennifer Haigh

After I read "Heat and Light ", I went back and read everything I could find of hers. This was exquisite, painful, so timely.

A fellow booksellernerd told me about these the other day, so since I should really expand my reading to every good book in the bookstore I had to buy them both. Saffron is tapping at both of these, which to start with?

The Rules of Magic | Alice Hoffman
Pickpick

I'll read anything Alice Hoffman writes, sometimes they are perfect brilliance, other times quirky and a bit off but interesting and outreaching. I didn't realize this was the prequel to "Practical Magic", gasp. More rollicking good fun. I love her world, her sisters, her magic... I could use some of their black soap!I really hope they make this into a series.

The Muse: A Novel | Jessie Burton

A year ago I picked up this ARC and It joined the piles of TBR. It's recently been released in trade paper and I saw it was an employee recommendation. To think that this gem was ignored floors me now. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Miller's Valley: A Novel | Anna Quindlen
post image

AlisonReadsBN After Bee's ? I needed something more from the heart. Anna Quindlen delivers. It helped me contemplate the whole "going home" concept and I came to realize I don't want to "go back" to that washed away place. If I do return it will be on my terms. 2y
AlisonReadsBN I'm really enjoying the Muse, like the 1936 and 1967 timespans 2y

Published in 1960, it's quite charming and interesting to take this road trip around America. What's changed what's the same, all through Steinbeck's personality.

I was disappointed with this book, perhaps I expected too much. Off the three widows: one was a dunderheard- not involved in the resistance, second was a nazi that stole the dead widows paper, third was a sanctimonious aristocrat that thought she was the moral compass of the nation. Not.

I was really pleased to to read Lisa See's growth as a writer. Excellent weaving of historical with contemporary issues.
