Bookmail Friday is a place where I share with you the books I received this week.
Other People’s Houses by Abbi Waxman – At any given moment in other people’s houses, you can find…repressed hopes and dreams…moments of unexpected joy…someone making love on the floor to a man who is most definitely not her husband…*record scratch* As soon as I read Kirkus Reviews write-up on OTHER PEOPLE’S HOUSES I knew I wanted to read this book. Women’s fiction is one of my favourite fiction sub-genres and who doesn’t enjoy a peek inside someone else’s home rolled doused in some laugh out loud moments?
The Foreseeable Future by Emily Adrian – Audrey Nelson is planning for her future after graduation, but she has no idea her future contains a swoony summer romance, Internet fame, or a nursing home. I’m a sucker for young love and THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE weaves together a story about a young girl finding her place in the world amidst new found love.
Freshman by Tom Ellen & Lucy Ivison – A laugh-out-loud, realistic portrayal of a freshman year in college for fans of Broad City. I vividly remember my college years, they were some of my best years, and feeling all grown up. I’m sure reading FRESHMAN will conjure up some familiar points that I will be able to laugh about today.
