Recent reading

It's the time of year when thing start becoming more hectic. It seems that there are fewer hours in each day and infinitely more things to do especially as the holidays draw nearer.

Despite my lack of posts, I have been getting some reading done (some being the operative word here).

I've read
Grim Tuesday by Garth Nix
(the 2nd book in his wonderful 'Keys of the Kingdom' series),
Goddess for Hire by Sonia Singh
(Singh combines chick lit with Indian culture to great effect, I did, however, like Bollywood Confidential better), and
Local Girls by Alice Hoffman
(a wonderful collection of short stories that combine themselves into a full-bodied picture of one girl and her family).

I've also been listening to the audio version of The Book of Illusions read by the author and wandering my way through The Book of Imaginary Beings.

And, I've been working (oh so very slowly) on my review of Margarettown by Gabrielle Zevin.

  1. Sounds like you've been busy! I'm anxious to hear more about the Singh, go figure... I know, I still need to read Bollywood (and the other 300+ books I've got here).
