A few new books and a few new magazines

That’s right; only a few books. But there were an awful lot the other day, so we can’t be too sad.

Addicted to Her, by Janet Nichols Lynch (220 pages) – Rafael falls obsessively in love with Monique, whose attentions require that he must choose between her, and his family and his responsibilities.

First lines: ‘Monique! She’s everything I could ever want.

The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya, by Nagaru Tanigawa (201 pages) – this is the sequel to The Melancholy of Hurahi Suzimiya. Which I can only recommend! Hurahi Suzimiya is the creator of the SOS club, and now she wants to create a film. She is also a goddess who can destroy the world (she doesn’t know this).

First line: ‘The sole worry of Haruhi, who looked like she didn’t have a worry in the world, could be summed up with the words “the world was too normal.”

Halo, by Alexandra Adornetto (484 pages) – The first in a series, I think. It is about angels – check the cover! One of them, Bethany, falls in love with the ‘handsome school captain,’ Xavier, in a wee town they – the angels – are protecting from the forces of evil led by a suave demon named Jake.

First lines: ‘Our arrival didn’t exactly go as planned. I remember it was almost dawn when we landed because the streetlights were still on.

And here are the magazines. They’ve built up! I have been on holiday.
