May is here as well as this month’s edition of Books Releasing This Month That I’m Excited About but Probably Won’t Read Anytime Soon. Without wasting any breath on the inanities (since I’ve already explained in last month’s blog post), let’s just dive into this month’s releases – all of those amazing-looking books that I’ll most probably or definitely miss out on. 😛
Artist Jayant Kripalani is used to bringing stories to life visually, be it in film, television, or theater. But he is also an author whose first book, New Market Tales, brought out nostalgia and history in full force. And now, his second book Cantilevered Tales, promises to bring reality to the fiction that we read. The story of everyday people and their quirks, Cantilevered Tales has a simple but attractive cover, and an even intriguing blurb.
I got the early copy of House of Rougeaux from NetGalley in exchange for feedback. My impression of books from sites that give away books for review is that the books there are not always ‘wow’. The covers are enticing, the blurbs even more so. But then the stories mostly turn out to be narratives where the authors simply don’t know what they are doing.
The hardcover version of Adulthood Is a Myth: A Sarah’s Scribbles Collection lay in my Amazon wish list for a long time. But when the price of the Kindle version fell dramatically, I took the opportunity and lapped it up. And what a decision that was!
