Even though I’ve enforced a slow reading month, I still managed to accidentally fall into the library. To be fair I did so with a purpose. Having just booked a weekend break to Budapest to cure the winter blues (so excited!) I thought I should look into Hungarian literature, so picked up a copy of Fateless along with a Lonely Planet. I’m not expecting it to be cheerful (as it’s mostly set in Auschwitz), but I’m hoping that the Nobel Prize Winning novel , by Imre Kerteszis going to be a good read.
Latest additions are:
The Visitor, by Maeve Brennan which looks short and spooky.
The Woman of Rome, Alberto Moravia – selected mainly for it’s lovely Penguin classic cover!
The modern classic – Wild Swans, Jung Chang
The Sinner and The Mephisto Club – I do love a bit of Tess Gerritsen and want to find time to read all the Rizzoli and Isles books from the start.
The House on the Strand by the wonderful Daphne Du Maurier
King Kong Theory by the controversial Virginie Despentes
In The Miso Soup, Ryu Murakami which I have had a hankering to read
Was, Geoff Ryman
Charity Shopping and The Thrift Lifestyle, Lettice Wilkinson – I do love a rummage.
