I am seriously neglecting this blog. I have been thinking (but not too often) about what I want to do with the blog and for now I am okay with the way it is. Life is happening, and it’s all good, and that’s okay.
So I will drop wrap-ups here now and then and I will of course do my long end-of-year wrap-up. I am reading and have in the past days met my goal of 75 books this year, so enough food for that end-of-year wrap-up in a few weeks!
Read in October
- God’s Boat by Kaori Ekuni
- Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan
- Under the Udala Trees by Chinelo Okparanta
- The Teahouse Fire by Ellis Avery
Read in November
- Affinity by Sarah Waters
- The Turn of the Screw by Henry James
- Bij ‘t graf van een denker by J. Groneman
October was The Literary Others. I was going to participate actively, but alas. I did host a giveaway over at Roofbeamreader’s, and was lucky enough to win a book myself. I ended up reading 4 books (but finished the last one in November), and all were amazing!
November was just a whole lot of eh. I started reading Cixin Liu’s Death’s End, the last volume in the Remembrance of Earth’s Past series. That was a slow read and took up most of my November.
Reading for the rest of 2016
I have finished my Goodreads challenge of reading 75 books. I am now trying to finish my current book, Queer: A Graphic History. I also plan to pick up Haruki Murakami’s Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World and my Christmas read will be Jeanette Winterson’s Christmas Days: 12 Stories and 12 Feasts for 12 Days. The last two+ weeks of the year are looking very busy, so who knows if I’ll even manage to finish these three books!
