As a reward for completing a presentation that I had been worried about earlier this week I went to the bookstore and picked out some new books this morning. So here’s the photo at the left- there’s something so fun about looking at piles of books.
Super Sad True Love Story- Gary Shteyngart
I recently started listening to the Book Riot podcast where it was mentioned that this book was the closes dystopian analog to the current NSA controversy. At which point I did a double take in my head at the surprise that this was a dystopian future novel- goes to show that you shouldn’t judge a book based on it’s title.
The Road Through the Wall- Shirley Jackson
I just love Shirley Jackson. I’m currently reading a very old copy of Life among the Savages and had her on the brain.
The Fat Years- Chan Koonchung
Apparently another dystopian novel. It’s a phase I guess.
