Recent Acquisitions

I made a trip to a bookstore today because in twelve days I’ll be on an airplane home, and I desperately needed some reading material to get me through the ten-hour journey. I originally went with the intention of picking up Sharon Lathan’s sequel to Pride and Prejudice, but the bookstore didn’t have the first book in the series. Instead, I picked up another book by Woodsmall, whose series I adored, as well as a book I saw recommended on several book blogs. The third novel I bought is by Lalami, whose first novel I absolutely adored, but I’m a little confused as to why the back cover of this one say’s it is her debut novel as her other novel is her first.
