Of recent, I've fostered a love-hate relationship with my local library. The love part? The adult section and the sci-fi/fantasy section. The hate part? The teenage section (it used to be brilliant but now has NO new releases). But, nevertheless, I decided to take a trip there (I say trip like it was a grand expedition, but, in reality, I live on the same street as my local library).
THE ROSIE PROJECT by Graeme Simsion
I'm hesitant about this one… I'm worried it will be too predictable and clichéd but, given all the raving reviews, I'm going to give it a chance. Who knows, maybe I'll LOVE it?
EATING ANIMALS by Jonathan Safran Foer
Okay, so I finished this one last night (I even surprised myself by reading a non-fiction book in one go) and it was BRILLIANT. As a vegetarian, I'm naturally very interested in vegetarianism and, as a Jonathan Safran Foer fan, I'm naturally very interested in any of his books. So, it's safe to say this book was a winner for me.
BIRDS WITHOUT WINGS by Louis de Bernieres
I absolutely LOVED Captain Corelli's Mandolin so when I saw another Louis de Bernieres novel on the 'recommended' shelf, I grabbed it pretty quickly.
THE INHERITOR'S POWDER by Sandra Hempel
I'm not usually a non-fiction fan, so I surprised myself again by picking out another one. I hadn't heard of this before but it's all about arsenic poisoning so, you know, probably my cup of tea.
THE QUEEN OF THE TEARLING by Erika Johansen
This books sounds COMPLETELY like a book I'll love. Plus Emma Watson starring in the film??? Yep, definitely a book I need to read.
THE SANDMAN: PRELUDES & NOCTURNES [volume 1] by Neil Gaiman
I have wanted to read this for SO LONG. You know this on-going quest I have to find a graphic novel that I'll enjoy? Well, I think I may have found it.
