I was doing SO WELL with my October books… and then the postman delivered my copy of La Belle Sauvage and my list got totally abandoned. So yeah, sorry to The Handmaid’s Tale because I totally abandoned it before I’d picked it up.
I finished almost all the other books on the list though. I’m still making my way through Artefacts and Other Stories though, so that will be on this month’s list as well.
Oh, and I’m going to be giving NaNoWriMo a bash this month as well, so if I read anything it will be a small miracle.
(Books that count toward my BBC17 will be highlighted in PURPLE and will be fully reviewed later in the month as part of the challenge and the Book Club books will be highlighted in GREEN and will feature in my Book Club review post in May after our meeting.)
On the list are:
Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks – It’s November so we thought we’d tackle a topical novel. Taken from the blurb: ‘Crafted from the ruins of war and the indestructibility of love, Birdsong is a novel that will be read and marveled at for years to come.‘ (This doubles up as my British Books Challenge read this month.)
Turtles All The Way Down by John Green – Caius bought me this as a surprise. I have heard so much good about it, I’m excited to get stuck in. (Also, it has an awesome cover!)
Artefacts & Other Stories by Rebecca Burns – Started last month, hopefully finished this month!
What Does This Button Do? by Bruce Dickinson – The postman brought me this last month, too. It has black sprayed edges and is so very pretty. I’m not usually an autobiography kind of person, but I made an exception for Mr Dickinson *little floaty love hearts*
