wishfulclicking: (beyonce with book)
[personal profile] wishfulclicking
After my recent book buying spree thanks to my library sale and hitting up thrift shops, I decided to put my library card to use for once (and maybe this time not incur any library fees).

If on a Winter's night a traveler by Italo Calvino. I've wanted to read this since last year's Yuletide fic and I've started it three times and never finish it. It's not that it bores me--the opposite actually, I like it so much I really just want to sit down and read it all in one go and then read it again a week after. My problem is I start too late and other things block me from uninterrupted reading time.

Sunset Park by Paul Auster. Sure I was hesitant because I didn't exactly love Man in the Dark but the opening sentence won me over and it has multiple povs (something that is a siren call for me).

The Essential Tales of Chekhov. I've only read maybe three Chekhov short stories. It was time to change that.

Among Others by Jo Walton. Okay, this one has had a lot of hype among blogs I follow, so I'm already going in with lowered expectations. I'm sure it's a good book but I doubt it'll live up to all the praise it's been getting. Maybe it'll prove me wrong like The Book Thief.

Spirit Gate by Kate Elliott. I wanted to try some sci-fi/fantasy and my library has the entire trilogy. Just giving this a shot.

Dreams Underfoot by Charles de Lint. The cover and the tag line 'Myth, music, and magic, and dreams underfoot...' pulled me in.

Ooooh. All of these look super interesting.

*laughs* I should pay off my library fines, so I can start checking out books again. I used to go every week.
