Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey
I've been seeing this one all over IMM posts, but I don't believe I've read a review yet. The back story on this is the Wren brings he boyfriend back from the dead, except he isn't the same person. (That's actually how the books opens, so I'm not even giving anything away!) Except now that Wren has brought back this half alive/half dead person she isn't really sure what to do with him. I'm already a few chapters into this one, and so far it's awfully heartbreaking.
The Smartest Woman I Know by Irene Beckerman
I wasn't sure what I was going to think about this one, but now that it's here it looks so cute! It's basically a memoir about the author's relationship with her Jewish grandmother. I'm pretty sure I didn't realize there was a Jewish aspect going on when I asked to read this book, but knowing there is only makes me more excited. Flipping through the books it's full of cute little doodles, like someone journal or even a lot of children's books. But the author herself is in her 60's so I can't imagine it's actually targeted to children. It is a short book, so I have a feeling I'll get through it in about a day, but I'm excited to really discover what it's all about!
Not too big of a haul, but still books I'm excited to read! What did you find in your mailbox this week?
