Incoming – books, books, books! Most of my new library additions are courtesy of Savidge Reads who has been having a bit of a clear out.
Having just read a recent review over at Hannah Stoneham’s Blog, I’m looking forward to reading Stone’s Fall. Ishiguru’s Never Let Me Go is also on my radar as one to read soon as well as a christmassy Agatha Raisin book!
I’m also thinking about reading the rather intriguing-sounding Strangers for this year’s Japanese Literature Challenge. I’m curious about, but daunted by Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex – has anyone read it?
Welsh publisher, Seren Press has very kindly sent me a couple of books. Sing Sorrow Sorrow -“a chilling collection of supernatural myth and otherworldly horror stories” – sounds a wonderfully dark book to dip into in the winter months.
I’ve got my lovely copy of Joshua Ferris’ The Unnamed from Thomas of My Porch Blog when he came for a visit, as well as Man Booker Longlisted The Slap which I bought for my book group at work and am currently reading.
Last, but not least I got a delightful parcel in the post – a little something for the party season ahead…
Phew… that concludes todays update. Better go and update the TBR now!
Have you read any of the above books and if so which would you recommend? What exciting post have you had recently (bookish or otherwise)?
