Some of you may have noticed that I was completely absent from posting last week. If you follow me on Twitter you may have seen that it was because I was in an interview process for a new job. I was lucky enough to get the new job last Friday and I’m super excited about it. I’m starting in another 2 weeks, after a brief break.
The additional time and energy required for the interviewing meant I didn’t have as much time to read or work on my blog after my regular full time job. But I’m back to my regular posting schedule this week! I may keep things on the lighter side (2 to 3 posts per week instead of 4) while I’m adjusting to my new job.
Please note that starting next week, I’m, officially moving my weekly Links I Loved posts to Sunday mornings. Enjoy this week’s links!

February was definitely an easier month for which to pick a good number of new Nonfiction and Fiction releases that I’m excited about. I think January is typically a less active month in the publishing world, so I had a harder time ferreting titles out that I felt truly compelling. This month, on the other hand, I had to cull my list down from 20 titles or so to ones that I thought sounded the most interesting.
I would also add Claire Fuller’s Swimming Lessons to the list but I’ve already read it (here is my review). It was available to Book Of The Month subscribers as an exclusive and one of their five December 2016 picks, but will be released in hardcover to everyone else on February 7th 2017. I highly recommend it – the way in which the story is in part told through past letters written by the absent mother figure in the novel is fascinating.

This post is coming one day late because I somehow got confused with my days between being on vacation and the time difference from Milan to LA, and I didn’t realize until too late that yesterday was actually Monday. Oops!
While you read this I’ll be enjoying my last day home visiting my family (we’re planning polpette for dinner), and then I’ll be on my way back to Los Angeles to get 2017 started for real. Back to work and also time to get started on those resolutions. If you’re starting to plan for your 2017 Reading Challenges and setting Reading Goals for the year, here are some titles coming out this month that you can consider adding to your TBR list.
