But first, a recap of my June readings:
- The Executioner's Song by Norman Mailer – 3/5
- Ghostwritten by David Mitchell - 5/5 (A MUST-READ!)
- Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card - currently reading
- A Wizard of Earthsea (Earthsea Cycle, #1) by Ursula LeGuin - carried over to July
I spent exactly 14 days reading The Executioner's Song with KD over at the book club, and then started reading Ender's Game right away. Unfortunately, I had a hard time with the first chapters of the book, and then before I knew it, it was time to buddy-read Ghostwritten with my uber favorite reading Buddy, Angus. In fact, I had just finished reading it
Now, for July.
In addition to Ender's Game, which I'm currently in the middle of, these are the books that make up my reading list for July:
Clockwise, from top right:
- The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro - A re-read, which I do very rarely (read: never?). Previously rated 4/5 stars, I need to read this again in time for the F2F7 on the last weekend of July. Like what I told a bookish buddy, who is this month's moderator, I feel like it's (also) my responsibility to defend not only the book, but also its author, from possible bashers. Oh, they're there, alright. :P
- A Wizard of Earthsea (Earthsea Cycle, #1) by Ursula LeGuin - carried over from June's reading list.
- 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff - An "adopted" book, which is supposed to make me cry. Let's see. :D
- Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen - My favorite YA book blogger, Tina, only has good things to say about this author. Another book blogger friend, Chris, suggested reading this first among Sarah Addison Allen's works. So, I thought, why not? Maybe I'll find I like her, after all. :)
