I'm about to pop away for a few quick days to Japan, which means - among other things - time to read books again. I've been trying to keep a list of all the stuff I read, but it's become a bit of a fruitless exercise lately (and I've been reading a lot for work). It's nice to keep everything in order. Anyway:
Books I've read lately. David Nicholls - Us (Got a galley copy from work, read it over one weekend while curled up - mostly - in bed. I liked it, but only really the flashback stuff. What does that say about me? Starter for 10 is his best, anyway.)
Margaret Drabble - Pure Gold Baby (Read it with a piece of cinnamon cake. Light and blissful.)
Ian McEwan - The Children Act (Oh, this was kind of disappointing. Not enough dialogue.)
Ben Aaronovitch - Broken Homes (This is my guilty pleasure. It's a cop book. With magic! Lol).
P.G Wodehouse - Jeeves and Wooster Omnibus (A re-read. But I needed more guilty pleasure, and a little bit of silliness.)
Books I'm looking forward to reading. Curtis Sittenfeld - Prep (Coming of age. High school. Girls. Give it to me.)
Lena Dunham - Not That Kind Of Girl (Oh I kind of hate myself for saying this but it's true. I wanna read it. If only so that I can do that awful girl thing and rip it to shreds with my friends.)
Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits, Leanne Shapton - Women in Clothes (I'm SO excited for this. It's on its way to me as we speak. Gonna read and re-read this until it gets here.)
