While I have some additional reviews to post, I thought I’d share some new buys which have been recently added to my TBR pile:
Banewreaker and Godslayer – Jacqueline Carey: I’ve only read Kushiel’s Dart of Carey’s other books, but these were recommended by The Literary Omnivore on her blog, and sounded interesting. I’ve just finished Banewreaker and really enjoyed it.
Atonement – Ian McEwan: I’ve never read any of McEwan’s novels, but saw the film adaptation recently, really enjoyed it, and so have decided to see what the book version is like.
Diplomatic Immunity – Lois McMaster Bujold: Having recently read the preceding Miles Vorkosigan books, Komarr and A Civil Campaign, I decided to get the next one in the series, and maybe go back and read the earlier titles at some other time.
The Black Jewels trilogy – Anne Bishop: I’d never heard of Anne Bishop or this book before, but it was in my Recommendations on Amazon, and the extract I tried was intriguing. I do wish it wasn’t quite so heavy – this will definitely be a read-at-home book, since it’s far too massive to carry around to read on the Underground!
I’m being particularly bad at non-fiction reading at the moment, and will try to go back to The Alexiad and On The Origin of Species soon to finish those.
Also, in other news, I’m hoping to get a Kindle for Christmas, so am hoarding titles which I can get for it to download later. All this delayed gratification isn’t good for me!
