#MayIGAuthors Day 13: Friday the 13th #FridayReads

I haven’t been doing a great job keeping up with these prompts, and I was a little at a loss about what to post today because I’m not a big fan of horror. But, I got some cool book mail, so I thought I’d share that instead.


Two things arrived in the mail this week. One is this tote from Bloomsbury that I got for pre-ordering A Court of Mist and Fury. The second is a birthday present from my husband. He surprised me by finding me a signed hardcover edition of one of my favorite books by one of my all-time favorite authors. That old-school sci-fi cover art is seriously vintage. I love it! I’m impressed that he was able to find this because Sassinak is not one ofAnne McCaffrey’s most popular books. Plus, this edition was published in the early 90s, and McCaffrey died a few years ago (I’m still sad about that).

Also pictured is the book I’m currently reading, Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld. It’s a modern Pride & Prejudice re-telling and so far it’s really entertaining. I’ve previously read (and enjoyed) several other books by Ms. Sittenfeld, and I think her dry humor and observations on culture and society are a great fit for this project.

Overall, I’d say that my Friday is going pretty well. 🙂
