Read in August 2014

Places travelled: London, South Korea, Malacca (Malaysia), Alaska, Seattle, New York City, Ohio, Africa (country not specified)

I started Book One of a new-to-me series, finished the final book in another (The Magician’s Land – very satisfying although I should have reread the first two or at least the second book for a refresher!). And also picked up a couple of much-chatted about books (Where’d you go, Bernadette? and The Vacationers)

Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos (Theodosia Throckmorton #1) – R.L. LaFevers
I’ll be right there – Shin Kyung-Sook
Ghost bride – Yangsze Choo
Where’d you go, Bernadette? – Maria Semple
The Stranger’s Child – Alan Hollinghurst
The Magicians Land – Lev Grossman
The Vacationers – Emma Straub
The Story Hour – Thrity Umrigar
The White Bone – Barbara Gowdy
Siege and Storm – Leigh Bardugo
Zone One – Colson Whitehead (review to come)
Ruin and Rising – Leigh Bardugo



  1. I bought The White Bone several years ago at a independent bookstore that had staff recommendations posted next to particular books, including that book. Still haven’t read it, but I think your blog is the first blog I’ve seen mention it at all. Did you enjoy it?
