In my mailbox this week I received:
The Song is You by Arthur Phillips...According to the press release, "The Song is You is a closely observed tale of love in the digital age that blurs the line between the longing for intimacy and the longing for oblivion." This is a love story and a comedy.

Bittersweet follows McAllester back to the place that evoked his happiest memories of his mother: the kitchen. ...a stunning tribute to his mother and a celebration of family and food.
The Blue Notebook by James A. Levine..According to the publisher..
"Levine artfully tells the story of Batuk, a 15 year-old Indian girl whose parents have sold her into sexual slavery. Batuk uses her rich imagination and gift for storytelling to transcend the harsh realities of living as a prostitute on the streets of Mumbai.
The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon...I have been waiting for this book since I fell in love with Shadow of the Wind.
The next four novels are published by Permanent Press. I will review these sometime in the future. Keep an eye out.
