Weekly Discoveries (Feb. 8)

Here's what caught my eye this week: As always, some are from fellow bloggers and some are my own discoveries.

For those new to this feature: I list all the books that attract my attention during the week. Some I'll read, many I won't. And later, I might not even remember why I thought I'd like a particular title or author.

Books to Consider
The Lieutenant by Kate Grenville (HF, late 1700s Australia); just published, also audio
All Other Nights by Dara Horn (Jewish soldier in U.S. Civil War); out in April
Mistress Shakespeare by Karen Harper (HF, 1500s England); just published, also ebook, audio
The Vagrants by Yiyun Li (1970s China, fiction); just published, also ebook
The Sister by Poppy Adams (fiction); also ebook, audio

Authors to Check Out
Michael Gregorio (mysteries, 1800 Prussia)
Jo Graham (historical fantasies), also ebook

'The Lieutenant' by Kate Grenville sounds good. I'm working on a Van Diemen's Land convict story at the moment. Good to discover a release in a similar vein.

I'd really like to read Mistress Shakespeare and The Sister too. I think I put The Sister on hold at the library but I put so many on hold lately that I can't remember. lol. I'll have to go check. I'd probably read it faster if I just bought it.

I loved Mistress Shakespeare! I usually give away my ARCs when I'm done with them, but I'm holding on to that one.

These all sound quite interesting. My TBR pile is already too mountainous so I might have to stick with what I already own. I'll have to check you out from time to time for reading recommendations.
