It’s only the first week of October and I don’t expect this to be the full book haul of the month, but my September haul was puny. Maybe cause I spent most my money on make-up and clothes-making things. But I’m expecting more birthday discounts from all the book shops I’m a member of.
The strikethroughs are the ones I’ve read. One have been reviewed; the rest are in queue except for the one I haven’t crossed off and The Time Traveler’s Wife, which I did months ago.
I’ve read the kiddy version of Anne Frank’s Diary yonks ago. It’s one of those books that left an impression. This one is the 60th Anniversary Edition and it includes entries and passages omitted in earlier editions due to various reasons. Oh boy oh boy. Can’t wait to get started on this version and see how it reads as an adult with a more comprehensive edition.
I noticed a surge of YA books about the Nazi occupation. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and The Book Thief were my recent reads. Both are very good, but I stopped myself from buying another one I found on Sunday. I forgot the title. There is such thing as too much on a topic. I draw the line here.
Remember Not Without My Daughter and an endless spawn of books in the theme of I-am-a-woman-oppressed-in-Saudi-Arabia? Remember Wild Swans, Chinese Cinderella and the endless spawn of I-am-an-unwanted-daughter-of-Communist-China? How about the spawn of Da Vinci Code wannabes riding the coattails of Dan Brown’s success? And all those vampire books after Twilight became all the rage??
So what are you reading?
