I spent a bit of time at the library this morning. I was there to pick up some holds but of course had to see what else I had to pop into my book bag and here’s what I found:
The first book is Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson. I loved her novel, Speak, which I read a few months ago so I couldn’t pass up this one. You can tell my little bookworm bookmark is already holding my place.
As I’ve been wanting to get back on my short story kick that I had going earlier in the year I thought this would be a wonderful addition to my bag: Sun, Stone and Shadows: 20 Great Mexican Short Stories. I’m looking forward to the ones by Juan Rulfo, Rosario Castellanos, Elena Garro and Carlos Fuentes in particular. I get the feeling though this is one of those books I need to add to my own personal biblioteca*.
Oh and speaking of book discussions, I’ve been meaning to post about the next Slaves of Golconda selection, The Woman in Black by Susan Hill. Discussion starts at the end of October. I read the book several years ago and highly recommend it. Unfortunately I won’t get a chance to do a re-read but I’ll drop in on the discussion. Feel free to join in if you want to talk about this spooky tale.
Now, I’m off to continue reading Wintergirls. What did you check out from the library?
