(the truth though is I’ve probably reread these books a few times over already!)
The Earthsea Quartet by Ursula K Le Guin
Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild
The Sandman series by Neil Gaiman
Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson – I only just read this series in 2020 but I want to read it again!
Beastie Boys Book – I listened to this one and it such an awesome audiobook (so many amazing narrators!). I do however want to read the actual book so I can see all the photos
The Kingkiller Chronicle series by Patrick Rothfuss – is Rothfuss even still writing? What’s going on? He gave us book 2.5 but then nothing after that. I have kinda forgotten a lot of the first two books now…and so if the third ever comes out, a reread is definitely required.
My Brother’s Husband by Gengoroh Tagame
The Makioka Sisters by Junichiro Tanizaki
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – I reread every so often. I guess I’m due for a reread!
His Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman
The Gormenghast series by Mervyn Peake – a series I haven’t read in ages. I don’t know how long it has been but it feels very long…
Gosh, this year… this year is a year to be thankful for all the little things.
I’m Thankful for…
I’m so glad that none of us have been sick, including our families in Singapore – which of today’s writing (November 22, 2020) had no local transmissions for more than a week now. Also, a total of just 28 deaths from this virus (the county I live in has 490 deaths – it also has a population of 1.67 million, compared to Singapore’s 5.6 million).
Our teachers have been working hard to teach the kids. They’ve been using fun online tools to teach, coming up with crafts that are doable at home and prepping the materials so parents can pick them up from school. It’s not easy having to teach 20+ students (my kids are in 2nd and 4th) via the Internet so I am grateful for them.
Speaking of which, I am grateful for the Internet, or specifically, good Internet. We recently switched to AT&T and hooray it comes with HBO Max so that’s a bonus!
I decided to go with books that are on my TBR list. So please let me know if you’d recommend any of these! Perhaps I should first explain that I tend to like bands that lean a bit more indie, and I especially enjoy unusual song titles like:
Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots by The Flaming Lips
They Are Night Zombies!! They Are Neighbors!! They Have Come Back From the Dead!! Ahhhh! by Sufjan Stevens
Hail To Whatever You Found in the Sunlight That Surrounds You by Rilo Kiley
Adorable!! I love the fun use of the backward tandem bike and the heart-shaped bag! Although I later did a double-take as I realised this is a book by Marissa Meyer, who wrote the Lunar Chronicles series.
