Library Loot 5
I actually went to the library twice this week. I'm not sure why, as I'm still reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman. Currently only 400 pages into it. I'm enjoying it, but it wasn't what I was expecting. Anyway, the other books that I picked up are:
1. 2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke
2. The Chocolate Way by Robert Cormier
3. The Time Machine by HG Wells
4. The City of Ember by Jeanne duPrau
5. The Cement Garden by Ian McEwan
6. Another World by Pat Barker
7. The Light of Day by Graham Swift
8. The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing by MT Anderson
9. The Regeneration Trilogy by Pat Barker (renewed)
Library Loot is hosted by Eva at A Striped Armchair and Alessandra at Out of the Blue. Go find out what other bloggers have checked out from the library this week.
I feel a bit all over the place with this stack of books. Three YA titles, two scifi/fantasy. Apart from the YA, they're all 1001 books. Signing up for the 1% well-read challenge again has made a difference in my book selection. I did the same thing last year, reading 5 books from the list in one month and burnt myself out. We'll see how these books go. Meanwhile, back to Neil Gaiman.
What are you reading at the moment? What're you reading next?
