Slightly Peckish Tuesday
6 November, 2012
rolls around again! Actually, I lie. That’s next week so do make sure you check out some chirashi action at Umami Mart: Slightly Peckish next Tuesday.
I’m off to Colombo for a wedding (not mine!) and having thought long and hard about what books to take with me (priorities, ahem) I’ve decided on the following:
The Chemickal Marriage by G.W. Dahlquist – the third and final installment of the Glass Books trilogy. Ooh, Cardinal Chang!
How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran – sometimes I need reminding. Also lots of people have told me how brilliant and hilarious this book is.
The Doomsday Book by Connie Willis – I have been dying to read this novel about historians from Oxford who time travel back to the Middle Ages. Hopefully it’ll be better than Michael Crichton’s Timeline.
Dark Road to Darjeeling and The Dark Enquiry by Deanna Raybourn – because I love me some Lady Julia and the dashing Brisbane.
Is that too many books for a 10 day trip where I probably won’t be able to do any reading for 7 days as I’ll have all my school friends with me and we can usually talk the backside off a baboon?
