Wow, is it really the last mailbox for May? Time really does fly, but I’ve been busy writing essays for uni so I can’t say that it’s been fun! I think the article stack is starting to reach dangerous heights, but that’s another story…
Over to the mailbox, which was completely empty this week! (I don’t think I can complain, I’ve had a really good run lately). I didn’t go shopping either because of study, so I bought a few ebooks instead:
Colum McCann – TransAtlantic
Covering a range of times and a range of individual stories, this book looks at how the past affects the future and moving from one world to another. Plus, it has a gorgeous cover!
Khaled Hosseini – And the Mountains Echoed
This has been THE buzz book of the past week. The story starts in Afghanistan in 1952 then moves across continents and generations. I’m really excited about this one!
R. Clifton Spargo – Beautiful Fools
I bought this one on the recommendation of booksaremyfavouriteandbest – it’s (another) story about Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. Described as a “love story for the most unyielding of romantics”, it will surely assist me until The Great Gatsby (finally) opens here.
What did you receive (or buy) this week?
