Booklog backlog

When I was travelling, I had lots of time for reading and little time for updating LJ. Hence I have a huge backlog of books I need to post reviews of. I haven't been doing so well since I got back to Stockholm and got sucked into the festival season, either. So here are the first batch of books that I have read recently and not got round to posting about until now:

  • Michael Marshall Smith: One of us
  • Colum McCann: Dancer
  • Rose Tremain: The colour
  • Madeleine L'Engle: A wind in the door

    Still to come from the summer:
  • Jack Womack: Elvissey
  • Tim Powers: The Anubis gates (reread)
  • John Steinbeck: The grapes of wrath (reread)
  • John Fowles: The ebony tower (short story collection)
  • Kate Chopin: The awakening
  • Desmond Bagley: The enemy
  • Jasper Fforde: The Eyre Affair
  • Monica Ali: Brick Lane
  • Tags: book, meta
