Books the Book Expo made me want

June 2, 2013

One of the hazards of BEA is that, beyond the books up for grabs, you learn about other titles that sound wonderful, because you’re surrounded by people who love books and promote them. Given my vast haul of books, I’m afraid to peek at NetGalley and see if I can get these.

These are the books that got onto my radar, but not into my greedy little hands.

Just Because

Cinnamon and Gunpowder by Eli Brown, A cook and a pirate. Enough said

The Summer of Beer and Whiskey by Edward Achorn. Beer, whiskey, culture and baseball, I suspect many people I know will want this one.

The Lost Art of Mixing– Erica Bauermeister. Because I loved The School of Essential Ingredients

Provence 1970 by Luke Barr. How Julia Child and James Beard and co revolutionized food.
Mister Max: The Book of Lost Things– Cynthia Voigt. This had me at “by Cynthia Voigt.”
This Song Will Save Your Life– Leila Sales. YA about a DJ. May be able to borrow from Hillary!
Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic– Emily Croy Barker. On the title alone.
Historical Fiction
The Outcasts– Kathleen Kent. I do not remember why particularly, other than “hey, historical fiction!”
Ludwig Conspiracy– Oliver Putsch. As in Beethoven.

    Delighted to know there is more from the author of The School of Essential Ingredients, which I also loved. I was just checking out your San Diego blog entries–courtesy of your mom’s email–and slipped into this very tempting list. Thanks and enjoy the rest of your San Diego SLA trip!
