Happy Sunday and Memorial Day weekend everyone! I hope everyone who celebrates it is having a good weekend with nice weather and cloudless skies (unlike the damp weather and threatening clouds overhead). I was hoping to make it to a local ice cream festival today, but unfortunately that didn't happen. Thanks, weather. Tomorrow, though, looks like it will be a better day.
However, the weekend hasn't been a total loss - yesterday, I saw Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales - it was a lot of fun to be back with Captain Jack Sparrow and his crew and Javier Bardem was pretty great as the villain of the story, plus the effects looked awesome - and I made it to the opening weekend of the county's Friends of the Library Book Sale. It's held at a warehouse which was absolutely packed with materials and shoppers and they had a $5 per stuffed bag special. The books in the photo above are what I managed to fit into that plastic bag!
Giant by Edna Ferber - The movie is a classic - I'd love to see what the source material is like.
Mob Rules by Cameron Haley - Sounds like a great urban fantasy series opener.
A Void by Georges Perec - There are zero e's in this novel - could be fascinating.
Alif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson - Described as being for fans of Neal Stephenson, plus it's by the mind behind Kamala Khan!
Alfred Hitchcock Presents: Stories Not for the Nervous - Stories the master has selected, say no more! Plus, "Sorry, Wrong Number" is one of the features!
Jane Steele by Lindsay Faye (ARC) - This sounds like it will be right up my alley.
Flawed by Cecelia Ahern (ARC) - Definitely have wondered what this could be about because it sounds fascinating.
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt - I have no idea why I haven't already devoured this novel.
Have you read any of these books and did you enjoy them? Which should I try first? Thanks as always for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!
