Patricia’s Fresh Picks for February 2015

Man, was it rainy last week.  And my much longed for DIBWB (day in bed with books) has yet to materialize.  Still… a girl can dream.  These titles just arrived at NVCL, and I think they all look amazing.

sasquatchThe Sasquatch Hunter’s Almanac by Sharma Shields

Family patriarch Eli is obsessed with finding the sasquatch after growing up abandoned by his mother.  (She willingly left him… maybe for a sasquatch?)

Rodin’s Lover by Heather Webbrodin

Try as I might to swear off books that are titled “Famous Man’s Name + Relationship = Not Famous Woman”, I can’t help but think that this story of the obsessive love affair between Camille Claudel and Auguste Rodin looks compulsively readable.

scapegoatThe Scapegoat by Sophia Nikolaidou*

Based on the real life of journalist James Polk, this novel jumps back and forth through time from 1940s Greece, where an American journalist is murdered, to the present day where a high school student works to find the truth.

What would you read on your DIBWB?
