What's hot! (#2)

What's hot!

In questa rubrica della domenica riporterò le scoperte settimanali di libri interessanti e che magari ho acquistato!

Su Goodreads c'è un sondaggio per scegliere i migliori libri del 2012 per varie categorie.. Mi hanno colpito due libri nella categoria umorismo.. Vediamoli!

Titolo: Sacré Bleu
Autore: Christopher Moore
Pagine: 403

Absolutely nothing is sacred to Christopher Moore. The phenomenally 
popular New York Times-bestselling satirist, whom the Atlanta Journal-Constitution calls “Stephen King with a whoopee cushion and a double-espresso imagination,” has already lampooned Shakespeare, San Francisco vampires, marine biologists, Death... even Jesus Christ and Santa Claus. 
In his latest novel, the immortal Moore takes on the Great French Masters. A magnificent “Comedy d’Art” from the author of LambFooland Bite Me, Moore’s Sacre Bleu is part mystery, part history (sort of), part love story, and wholly hilarious as it follows a young baker-painter who joins the dapper Henri Toulouse-Lautrec on a quest to unravel the mystery behind the supposed suicide of Vincent van Gogh.

Non vedo l'ora che arrivi anche in Italia! "Il vangelo secondo Biff" mi ha fatto fare talmente tante risate da sentirmi male.. Credo che quest'opera sia ugualmente dissacrante!

Titolo:  Let's pretend this never happened
Autore: Jenny Lawson
Pagine: 318

For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris—Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut.

Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives—the ones we’d like to pretend never happened—are in fact the ones that define us. In the #1 New York Times bestseller, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor. Chapters include: “Stanley the Magical, Talking Squirrel”; “A Series of Angry Post-It Notes to My Husband”; “My Vagina Is Fine. Thanks for Asking”; “And Then I Snuck a Dead Cuban Alligator on an Airplane.” Pictures with captions (no one would believe these things without proof) accompany the text.
