Most of the books I’ve gotten lately have come from the library, not the store or my mailbox, so I decided to start calling these posts “On My Desk.” Anything I’m currently reading or interested in gets piled there anyway, so it makes more sense for me. This week has been exciting, especially because I’ve managed to get some brand new books via the library. I’m way excited for Kendare Blake’s Girl of nightmares, the companion to Anna Dressed in Blood. I’m also excited to read A Case for Solomon, which began as an hour-long story on NPR’s This American Life. Syndrome E looks to be a promising thriller, and Map of the Sky is the follow-up to Palma’s excellent Map of Time. David Levithan’s Every Day was very good, and you can read my review by following the link below. Happy reading everyone!
