March of the Penguins

I’m really excited for three books released this month:

If Walls Could Talk by Lucy Worsely (February 28, 2012)
The Bellwether Revivals by Benjamin Wood (March 20, 2012)
The Gilly Salt Sisters by Tiffany Baker (March 14, 2012) – Read review from BroadArtVibe

If Walls Could Talk tracks the history of the home in England from what people did in bed to when flushing toilets were all the rage. The Bellwether Revivals is a romance and murder mystery at Cambridge compared to Brideshead Revisted. Two sisters spend a lifetime quarrelling over one man in The Gilly Salt Sisters.

I’m also looking to catch-up on my ever-growing to-read list – because the first rule of book blogging is to have way too many books to read:

The Darlings by Christina Alger (February 16, 2012) – Featured in February Reads

The Fat Years by Chan Koonchung (January 10, 2012)

All of China catches amnesia and forgets about a whole month in The Fat Years.

Happy March!
