Slightly Peckish Tuesday

28 June, 2011

is here once again. This time I am invited to my sister’s mother-in-law’s to eat some Malaysian food. So check me out at Umamimart: Slightly Peckish.

There’s still a day left for my Literary Giveaway Blog Hop so leave a comment in my giveaway post for a chance to win a signed copy of Reef or The Match by Romesh Gunesekera.

In bookish news, I’m still going strong on the Malazan front and have just finished vol. 6, The Bonehunters by Steven Erikson. I erroneously thought it would be about the T’lan Imass bonecasters until I realised it was about the bonehunters and had a good laugh at myself. Sometimes I read too fast for my own good and make up words. I’ve also started The Glass of Time by Michael Cox after really enjoying its prequel The Meaning of Night. And I’ve finally come back to Banana Yoshimoto after many years. There is something familiar and comforting about the pace of prose in The Lake. And I’ll soon be starting Journey by Moonlight by Antal Szerb picked by Polly for my book group.

It’s been sunny and hot here in London over the weekend although quickly followed by thunderstorms now. How’s it been where you are?

    HOT and Humid in Holland.
    I’m making miniquiches with prawns and brie for a schoolgathering tomorrow.
    I love Indonesion food which is a bit like Malaysian, if I’m not mistaken?
    The bloghop is fun!

    I can see how Banana Yoshimoto’s prose could be familiar and comforting. Kitchen was wonderful! Hope to read Goodbye, Tsugumi soon.

    ohhh, the Michael Cox books were both really good!!! I got sad when they were over knowing there would be no more books by him…he was a very good writer!
