Library Haul

Books I picked up recently at the library:

All Roads Lead to Austen: A Yearlong Journey with Jane by Amy Elizabeth Smith

Discovered this while browsing: the author journeys through South America reading Jane Austen books with local book groups along the way. Seems an odd combination, but it does combine two interests of mine, so we'll see!

The True Secret of Writing by Natalie Goldberg

I enjoyed Writing Down the Bones so much that when I came across Goldberg's much more recent book (published in 2013!), I had to try it out. I'm eager to see what new revelations she's come across in the years since, though of course the title is tongue-in-cheek.

And the truth is, I've been returning to the library in hopes of snagging the second book in The Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy, but it's never there! There's always one or more copies of the third book, but never the second. And I know as soon as I snag the second, I won't catch a glimpse of the third for months :-( I may cave and buy it. We'll see.
