General End Of Month Update

I haven't read as many books as I would've like this month, but the sheer super quality of the books I have read more than makes up for this. They are:

One Day by David Nicholls (this book DESTROYED me emotionally. Oh Nicholls, you build us up just to bring us down again, just like the irksome buttercup from that popular song)

The Wind Up Bird Chronice by Haruki Murakami (come and live in London, Murakami, so that I may befriend and subsequently wed you)

Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh (Just. Superb. Review will come imminently because I need to rave about this book to somebody other than my bathroom mirror)

This weekend I will be off round London to search for books as part of the Guardian Book Swap, pretending to be some kind of manic pixie dream girl.


  1. Good luck with the search! Sadly I've yet to find anything myself, but I have plans to release a few books into the wild.

    Brideshead Revisited has been lingering on my tbr pile for far too long. About time I get to it.

  2. Unfortunately my books don't seem to have been found either! The whole scheme seems like the type of thing that works better in theory than in practice. A bit like Communism.

    Thanks for the comment!
