bookjourney who hosts this feature each week.
I got only one review finished last week, although I did finish a fair number of books. Reviews will follow shortly for:
February, by Lisa Moore
Parrot and Olivier in America, by Peter Carey
(both part of the Booker Prize Longlist) 4/13 down, 9 to go
The End of the World in Breslau, by Marek Krajewski
Our Kind of Traitor, by John LeCarre
(which sparked the rewatching of the old BBC broadcasts of Tinker, Tailor Soldier, Spy and Smiley's People and had me dusting off my old copies of other LeCarre novels I own)
Appointment With Death, by Agatha Christie
the solitary book review completed last week:
Murdering Stepmothers: The Execution of Martha Rendell, by Anna Haebich
This week I have longlist reading plans for
Room, by Emma Donoghue
and otherwise I have one more book by Marek Krajewski to read called The Phantoms of Breslau. Krajewski's books are excellent, seedy and somewhat creepy noir thrillers from Poland and I love them.
Currently I'm just starting Room, but I've also started LeCarre's A Murder of Quality. I've heard good things about Donoghue's book so I can't wait to get into it.
that's about it; don't forget I'm hosting a giveaway contest for Lisa Moore's February (see below). There's still plenty of time if you're interested.

@Pam: Thanks for coming by!ReplyDelete
@Gautami: I try to be somewhat choosy ...you know that old saying -- so many books, so little time!
@Jess: Don't be jealous -- that's silly. Who knows...I may hate it.
@Jennifer: I'll look forward to your review of Room!
