- This past week I started two novels – Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy and the final book in Stieg Larsson’s Millenium Trilogy, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest.
These two books couldn’t be more different, and that is precisely why I am reading them at the same time – and enjoying them immensely. They are both tomes at ~1000 pages and 560 pages respectively so I won’t commit to anything more for this coming week!
- I also discovered a wonderful sounding novel called The Coral Thief by Rebecca Stott (read Fleur Fisher Reads review).
- Regulars readers will know I love pre-ordering paper back releases of books from The Book Depository. Why? Because you get them at significantly reduced prices and when you order them a couple of months out it is such a lovely surprise to get their email saying that the book has just arrived and will be on its way to you shortly! 🙂
This week I received one such lovely email from them about The Lost and Forgotten Languages of Shanghai by Ruiyan Xu . With that one now on its way, I couldn’t help myself but pre-order another, this time the paperback release of The Coral Thief by Rebecca Stott – a bargain.
What’s Coming Up: Watch out for my guest post on Desert Book Chick in a week’s time as part of Amanda’s Classics Month.
