RE: The last book you bought.


Since I read Miss Peregrine's Home for peculiar Children in one day and found it very poor, I returned it to Waterstones pretending I already had it and got hold of the third Abarat book.

I am obsessed with British Heart Foundation charity shops! They have one in Harrogate that is just full off books and cds etc.

Last week I got some amazing bargains, including Starhawk's The Spiral Dance and Magick in theory and practise by Aleister Crowley :)

Can you please do dramatic readings for us the next time we meet up? :)

Inspired by the lovely Alka, plus general train station boredom, I went to buy a book. I've somehow ended up with the first two A Song of Ice and Fire books and The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides. I've not only run out of any kind of conceivable bookspace in my room, I'm now having to pretend they're not there in order to get even a semblance of thesis work done. My bibliosluttery is completely out of control, it seems (and I couldn't be happier about it).

How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff. I remember borrowing it from the library years ago and it made an impression I guess.

The Art of Happiness by Dalai Lama XIV, Howard C. Cutler. It's a collective of interviews with the Dalai Lama which have been recorded and analysed by psychologist Howard Cutler. It's really interesting :)

Garth Nix's first book Ragwitch, which I owned as a teenager but only read once as it freaked me out, and eventually sold it. I recently discovered that it's only been published twice and it seems to be currently out of print, so Skittles wound up buying me a second hand copy in perfect condition. I am happy but still reluctant to read it, haha. More of a collector's item!

Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale and Charles Bukowski's Ham on Rye. I've been meaning to get into Margaret Atwood after all the good things I've read about her on this board, and Charles Bukowski I've been dying to read because he's awesome and I've been in love with him since I checked out a book of his poetry, Bone Palace Ballet, from the library. Both books are incredible and are new favorites of mine. Ham on Rye in particular is absolutely hilarious!

Creating a Life Worth Living by Carol Lloyd. Very encouraging and interesting book about creating a creative lifestyle that suits your particular creative personality and needs. Each chapter has an interview with a creative professional (artists, actors, directors, publisher, etc), some quite well known. And why? Well, because I haven't cracked it yet and I'm hungry for advice!

Just bought The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern on Amazon, really looking forward to reading it - when I finish all the other books I'm in the middle of anyway.

The Steampunk Bible- it's a bit pretentious in parts and a little weighed down by certain detail, but the pictures are pretty and it's quite interesting.

Isn't it just! The pages are so glorious, I could eat them. I love the delightfully restrained, polite dispute between Verne and H G Welles :')

Teen Witch by Silver Ravenwolf, which was interesting but not quite reliable. Somebody bought all the Cunningham. *sigh*

I went on a spree yesterday to get stuff for uni next term:

  • Adam Bede - George Eliot
  • The Monk - Matthew Lewis
  • The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner - James Hogg
  • A Sicillian Romance - Ann Radcliffe

Not for uni:

  • A Clergyman's Daughter - George Orwell
  • Very Good Jeeves - P. G. Wodehouse
  • Fanny Hill: Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure - John Cleland

I really want to start reading them all but Anna Karenina is taking fucking forever to get through!
