This last week in my mailbox:
Conversations with a Moonflower
by Christine T. Hall
(This complementary signed copy was sent to my from Cedar Fort Publishing in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. I am participating in a virtual book tour beginning August 28
and ending September 7, 2011. My review will be posted September 7, 2001.)
Flowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory
by Sara L. Chapman
(I received this gorgeous book from the author in exchange for a review. This in no way influences the resulting review nor my opinion) Psst....if you love flowers, you'll be blown away by this little beauty! The review is featured here on my gardening blog, The Gardening Life.
Life of Pi
by Yann Martel
(I won this copy from fReado)
This is the 10th anniversary edition of Canadian author's, Yann Martel, bestselling novel, Life of Pi. It was released February 5 of this year. Winner of the Man Booker prize in 2002. The movie adaptation of Life of Pi is currently being filmed in 3D, no release date as of yet.
"Yann Martel’s second novel, Life of Pi, appeared in Canada in 2001 to enthusiastic reviews and moderate sales. A year later, it came out of nowhere to win the Booker Prize and became an international publishing phenomenon (and Amazon.ca’s first blockbuster). In a wonderful display of storytelling verve, Martel takes a distinctly unpromising premise–a “story that will make you believe in God” about a boy trapped on a lifeboat with an enormous tiger–and pulls it off with complete and winning confidence."
