January’s New ReadsPosted: 2017/01/31
A little something about the new year. I have absolutely no expectations of the year to come. No list of things I must pretend to accomplish. No run numbers, real or imagined. There has been an end to so many things. As a result I’m in day-by-day mode. Or, in the case of this entry, book-by-book. Here’s what I finished:
- Captain of the Sleepers by Mayra Montero
- Any Human Heart: a novel by William Boyd (AB + print)
- Italy and the Grand Tour by Jeremy Black
- Another Life by Michael Korda
- Book of Puka-Puka by Robert Dean Frisbie. (I am now reading An Island to Oneself by Tom Neale as a continuation to Puka.)
- Spiderweb for Two by Elizabeth Enright (finished the series)
- Hyperion by Dan Simmons (started the series). (I’m now reading Fall of Hyperion as a continuation.)
- Dirty Work by Gabriel Weston. NOTE: I was supposed to receive this as an Early Review in 2014. When it didn’t arrive I borrowed it from a library two years later.
- You Carried Me by Melissa Ohden (December 2016 batch)
- Island Voices II by Poets of Monhegan Island ~ a gift from my mother.
