In midst of working at the bookstore and obtaining advanced readers’ copies, reading poetry books for The Blood-Jet, and participating in a book club with friends, my reading list this month has quite a range, and I hope to finish (at least browse) most of the books I’ve acquired this month.
The Gates by John Connolly
The Amazing Adventures of Klay and Kavalier by Michael Chabon
The Ravenous Audience by Kate Durbin
The World’s Wife by Carol Ann Duffy
The Heart’s Traffic by Ching-In Chen (re-reading)
Seeing Redd by Frank Beddor
Sonata Mulattica by Rita Dove
What It Is by Lynda Barry
Quite a bit of fiction this month, and this has a lot to do with my new job. I haven’t read this much fiction in a while, and it’s nice to mix it up with the poetry I mostly read.
I’ve been thinking of reviewing Lynda Barry’s What It Is for the PAWA Blog for quite some time. It’s a fun book on writing, which mixes comic vignettes, writing advice and exercises. I definitely have to revisit it.
