Well I am a little late with this but hey last month I didn't even make a list so now we have a little progress. I have so many books in my tbr pile that it is a little hard for me to pick which books I'd like to read next but that is always a good problem to have. So here is my (incomplete because we all know that I'll end up requesting a ton of books from NetGalley and getting some from the library) list of books I plan on reading in April:
The Falling Woman by Pat Murphy:
This is a book that I requested from NetGalley. It won the Nebula Award back for 1987. I immediately was captivated by the cover and it reminded me of a piece of artwork that I wrote a paper on in my Intro to Non-Western Art History class. The book description really intrigued me and as I am starting to read more books about archeology (at least fiction books) I decided to request it. Here is some of the book description:
When night falls over the Yucatan, the archaeologists lay down their tools. But while her colleagues relax, Elizabeth Butler searches for shadows. A famous scientist with a reputation for eccentricity, she carries a strange secret. Where others see nothing but dirt and bones and fragments of pottery, Elizabeth sees shades of the men and women who walked this ground thousands of years before. She can speak to the past—and the past is beginning to speak back.
Critical Vulnerability by Melissa F. Miller:
This is the first book in a new series by one of my favorite authors. The main character in this series, Aroostine Higgins, made appearances in Miller's other series so I am really looking forward to reading more about Aroostine. Here is the book description:
