Hope you are enjoying spring-like weather today, wherever you are!
I was lucky to win two ARCs from Random House Publishing. Here are the book descriptions:
Five Star Billionaire: A Novel by Tash Aw
Tash Aw charts the overlapping lives of migrant Malaysian workers, forging lives for themselves in sprawling Shanghai.
Blood and Beauty: The Borgias, a Novel by Sarah Dunant
A powerhouse of the Italian Renaissance, their very name epitomizes the ruthless politics and corruption of the Papacy. An epic novel which sets out to capture the scope, the detail, the depth, the colour and the complexity of this fascinating family.
I'm reading a lot of historical novels right now, so I'm looking forward to finding out more about the Borgias. And the new wealthy in China are a hot topic, so a novel featuring the new Shanghai will be interesting. Publication dates for these books will be in July 2013.
I seem to have about seven books to review in the next month for book tours! April will be the busiest month! What was I thinking? But then I chose books that I really thought would be interesting. And they are!
Enjoy your day!
