Into my mailbox this week came a wide variety of genres; from short story to novel, from thriller to meditation, from Japan to Russia, all of them are exciting to me.
First, there is The Law of Attraction by Allison Leotta, an unsolicited copy which arrived from Simon and Schuster. It is being released this October. Love novels of crime and suspense, and this is a new author to me. Have you read anything by her?
Next is The Oxford Book of Japanese Short Stories by Theodore W. Goossen which I heard about from Tony. It is an authoritative collection of the very best Japanese authors. Not normally a huge fan of short stories, I’m still looking forward to reading this and becoming more familiar with each author’s style.
The work I’m most greatly anticipating opening, however, is the newly released Dr. Zhivago which I won from Frances. I loved the Peavear and Volokhonsky translation of War and Peace which my son gave me for Christmas several years ago; how much I look forward to reading this translation of Dr. Zhivago for Frances’ read along this November.
Do any of these particularly catch your eye?
