More books arrived

Amazon is having a clearance sale so I of course got a few things. Well, actually I get a few things each month. Anyway, here's what arrived today:

Pagan's Crusade by Catherine Jinks
How I Paid for College by Marc Acito
The Giver by Lois Lowry

And two films: Mars Attacks and Corpse Bride

I've also been to the library recently and got:

The Girl in Hyacinth Blue by Susan Vreeland
Jennifer Government by Max Barry
The Ninth Life of Louis Drax by Liz Jensen
This is Your Life by John O'Farrell
Charmed and Dangerous by Candace Havens

Have you read any of these? What did you think?

Also, I'm looking for my next audio book and would love some recommendations!

I just bought a whole slew of audio books this last week:

Lady Macbeth
Huck Finn
I, Claudius
Catherdral of the Sea

And I'm going to get Roots tonight. Yikes.

I'm almost finished listening the "Innocent Traitor" by Alison Weir, and it is fantastic! If you like Philippa Gregory, this is the same kind of book.

Have a great weekend, Joanna!

Of your list I have read Girl in Hyacinth Blue which was really interesting and I own a Catherine Jinx book. I think it is the same one as you bought..but I'm not sure!
