I think I’m a little delusional. Every week I go to the library, returning tons of books, only to leave with more books than I returned. This week is no exception.
I was in a food/memoir mood when I put To Begin Again by MFK Fisher on hold. I’ll probably read it for my In Their Shoes Challenge. I’ve heard so many great things about The Vagrants by Yiyun Li that I had to be the first to check it out at my library. I’m one of those book geeks who follow online book tournaments like the Tournament of Books hosted by Powell’s Books. When I read how Louis De Bernieres’ A Partisan’s Daughter won in a match against Joseph O’Neill’s Netherland, I added both books to my list.
Cat Weatherill’s Wild Magic is a retelling of the Pied Piper tale. and on my Young Adult Challenge list. Michele at Reading is Breathing recommended The Epicure’s Lament. I’m currently reading books about books so I added Reading Magic by Mem Fox to the list.
Steer Toward Rock by Fae Myenne Ng lost against Bolano’s 2666 in the first round of the tournament but I’m still reading it.
