Sunday Salon: Thriller, Fiction, Literary Fiction

I have finished several library books: The Other Einstein, The Orphan's Tale, and I See You. My new reading includes Cooking for Picasso, The Day I Died  and Big Breasts and Wide Hips, Previous posts will show the covers and details of the books.

I have started a novel on the history of blues in Chicago, Windy City Blues, and almost finished a quirky novel, The Wangs vs. the World, but misplaced my copy just when I'm so close to finishing!

Three paperback arrivals.
A Certain Age by Beatriz Williams, a book of romance and scandal in the Roaring Twenties of New York.
Mongrels by Stephen Graham Jones, a coming-of-age story of an lunlusual boy, an outsider.
Wilde Lake by Laura Lippman, a modern day twist of To Kill a Mockingbird.

I am finally reading more e-books from the library, using Overdrive to order online. There are several queued for me so I'll get them when they become available. Suits me fine as I can hardly read too many at one time!

On a sunny but cold day in Ohio, Cooking for Picasso, a novel by Camille Aubray, is wonderful company and hits the spot. The book is set in Picasso's heyday in the sunny, blue Mediterranean, on the Cote d'Azur.

This is the second post I've read about "THe Orphan's Tale" in the past 24 hours... I think the world is trying to tell me something. "Cooking for Picasso" also looks like my kind of book. It's funny you say you're in Ohio...The blog that posted right before you on the Sunday Post mentioned that she is too, and I am in Loveland - outside of Cicncy. Happy reading!

I requested Picasso and it arrived yesterday. It sounds quite promising.

I loved Wilde Lake...in fact, I need another book from this author! I hope she's bringing out another one soon.

A Certain Age is one I've been ogling.

Thanks for sharing...and enjoy. And thanks for visiting my blog.

You're reading some great books! I liked The Wicked City form Beatriz Williams but have not read A Certain Age. I really want to read The Orphan's Tale.

A Certain Age sounds promising and so does a little time on the Mediterranean with Picasso. :)

A Certain Age looks great. I hope you find your book really soon!

Elizabeth said...

Oh no on misplacing your book...that has to be awful.

Nice books in your mailbox. I have read A CERTAIN AGE and WILDE LAKE. I hope you like them...I enjoyed both of them.

Loved THE ORPHAN'S TALE. I SEE YOU didn't get good for me until the last 100 pages, but the suspense was worth the wait. :)

Have a great reading week.

I have a copy of cooking for Picasso. Sounds charming!

Always enjoy Beatriz William's books. Hope it is a great read for you too.

Brian Joseph said...

Many of these books look good.

Windy City Blues sounds particularly impressive.

I am impressed that you can read so many books at one time Harvee. I tend to stick to two. I hope that you find your misplaced book.
