But before I proceed with this month's books, I am taking my cue from my bookish Buddy and listing the backlog that is my reading for a couple of months running, as follows:
- The Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst - [August] untouched
- An Artist of the Floating World by Kazuo Ishiguro - [August, carried over to September] untouched
- The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova - [September] untouched
I think I've gotten over the reading slump I endured through most of the last few weeks, thanks to the
But anyway! Here are the books that I did manage to read for September:
- In Cold Blood by Truman Capote - A family's massacre. 3/5
- The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder - Beautiful writing. 4/5
- The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell - currently reading
I am so geared up to finish de Zoet by this weekend so I can finally, finally start on the October books.
Here they are:
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - TFG's F2F book for the month of October
- The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky - Aldrin and I were supposed to buddy read Jhumpa Lahiri's Interpreter of Maladies this week, right after de Zoet, but he loves Perks so much that he's willing to postpone reading Lahiri just so I could find time to squeeze it in my already-hectic reading schedule. What is book-shoving. :P
- The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova - I really, really, really need to read this already. Like, really really.
So, October. Let's do this? :D
