I've thought of an idea for a month-long event: old dystopias. There are a ton of mostly YA dystopias coming out this year - what about a month devoted to those published before, say, 1950? Any thoughts? I was thinking reviews, giveaways (probably of used books, as that's all I can afford, but I could see if some publishers would be willing to donate...). No interviews, though, as most authors died decades ago.
This week will probably be a slow one for reviews. I'm almost done with An Atlas of Impossible Longing, but my review of that won't be posted until the book's release on April 5. Other than that, I'm preparing for the Scribbling Women blog hop and starting Here on Earth.
Arrived this week for review:
Here on Earth: A Natural History of the Planet by Tim Flannery (publisher: Grove/Atlantic)
Scribbling Women by Marthe Jocelyn (review/interview to be posted on 3/28!)
The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin (publisher: St. Martin's Press)
Drought by Pam Bachorz, thanks to Queen of Happy Endings
A Brief History of Montmaray by Michelle Cooper (Random Buzzers)
