Hop and Shop


It's Friday (or will be in a few hours) and that means another Hop! Thanks to all who have stoped by from Crazy-For-Books weekly Blog Hop. It's been a not so eventful week, I've been running my Summer for Hogwarts read-a-long and started a new job. I'm hoping to get a few more reviews and non Potter related posts up this week, including this one.

------------------------------------------------------


I haven't really been buying books lately. ARC copies show up frequently enough and I still have a ton of books from Christmas but one of the other book communities I follow is starting a new book club. I used this as an excuse to head over to Costco to grab a copy of Norwegian Wood. Of course I had overestimated Costco's stock, but did end up with two other books.
To make a long story short I got 4 books this week. 2 from Costco, 1 from Barnes and Noble and one is an ARC from Goodreads
I'm really excited for all of these. I've been on an Italy kick lately. Not Italian fiction but American fiction set in Italy so The City of Falling Angels and The Blind Contessa should fit right into that, and I've heard nothing but good things about Murakami. I'll hopefully be starting both Norwegian Wood and Contessa shortly, as well as keeping up with my Harry Potter summer project and maybe even finish Lolita. Stay tuned for crazy cool Harry Potter questions, reviews and a possible give-a-way in the not to distant future!

Just hopping by! City of Falling Angles was not nearly as good as Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, but I think if I had read it first I would have liked it fine-I just LOVED Midnight and wanted City of Angles to be exactly like it in every way (including drag queens!) Looks like a good list!

I loved Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by Berendt -- but haven't read the above. May have to add it to my TBR list!

Hi, I'm here on the hop. My blog specializes in historical fiction--if you're reading books set in Italy, you might enjoy a new book I reviewed on my Blog, Nonna's Book of Mysteries, about a girl in Renaissance Florence who wants to be an artist.

I recently picked up Norwegian Wood at a used book store as well. Murakami is one of my favorites so I can't wait to read it. I think you'll enjoy it too.
