Waiting on Wednesday- Feb. 10, 2010
This weekly event is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we get to share which upcoming reads/new releases that we just can't wait to get our hands on.
I'm usually all over the board with my choice of books and this week proves no different. I haven't read much in the quirky humour type books that I love to get into to & shake things up. My WoW pick this week will definitely fit the quirky category! (The trailer below, while having not much to do with the premise, I think, feels like a good reflection of the tone this book will take.)
The Bird Room by Chris Killen
From Harper Perennial:
A story of obsessive love among young Brits, The Bird Room follows Will, a painfully average and introverted guy who finally manages to find himself a girlfriend, Alice. She’s smart and sexy and she loves him, but Will can’t seem to believe it. Lots of us have been there—but have we spent hours online, searching for amateur porn videos of our significant others? Unexpectedly funny, The Bird Room explores how love can lift us up . . . and drag us way, way down. I tore through this one in a few hours, and you will, too. For an extra added bonus, check out the book trailer for this one, one of my favorites of all time (it features cats!):
