I’ve been trying not to buy books and failing miserably recently. I’m only in London for a few months, so accumulating a book fortress is going to make for interesting moving, but it doesn’t count if you get given books. And I was given books. So it doesn’t count.
They’ve all got great covers.
All Day at the Movies by Fiona Kidman
The cover for this book is so atmospheric. It’s an unsettling mix of haunted and nostalgic and I feel like the story will be a similar blend of emotions.
Black Sugar by Miguel Bonnefoy
I don’t know if I’ve ever read any magical realism, I’m almost certain I’ve never read any translated fiction. It seems crazy to think that there’s so many books out there I still haven’t read. Black Sugar is a story about buried treasure, corruption and greed.
The Threat Level Remains Severe by Rowena Macdonald
This books sounds like a fun take on the House of Commons and what the government are up to. It’s not necessarily one I’d pick up for myself, but I’m excited to give it a go.
The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
I think the cover on this book is beautiful. I have a bit of surname-envy too. There have been comparisons between this story and Little Women because it’s a story of four sisters. I’m interested to see if that’s the case.
