Sunday Salon and BAFAB

I'm currently reading two books. The first one is The Boat by Nam Le, which is actually a collection of short stories. I've read two of the stories, both of which are pretty good. It's been awhile since I've read any short stories, but the endorsements for this particular book were incredible. The funny thing about short stories is that you just feel like you there...really into it and then it's over. :)

I'm also reading The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti which I received from Book Browse's First Impressions program. I am really loving this book so far. It's different from my normal reading fare, which is always a good change. It seems it will be available in August, so you might want to keep your eyes open for it, if you haven't already scored an ARC.

And finally, I'm a week late with Buy a Friend a Book Week, but I'd like to join in the fun anyway. So if you leave a comment on this post, I'll enter you into a drawing for one of my favorite books of the year so far. You can read my list here. To double your chances, blog about your favorite books of the year so far and sign the Mr. Linky on this post.

There are just a few modifications to be made to the list. Songs for the Missing is not available yet, so it cannot be chosen for this giveaway. The Moon in the Mango Tree by Pamela Binnings Ewen and My Hands Came Away Red by Lisa McKay are both books I forgot to put on that list, so they can both be chosen!
