because I’m feeling Slightly Peckish in Borough Market! The lovely Kayoko from Umamimart has invited me to write a fortnightly column for her food blog which features some mouthwatering photos, recipes with a twist, sexy cocktails and some sassy writing, and as a lover of all things foodie, who was I to refuse? Umamimart is one of my favourite food blogs and never fails to perk up my day. You may recall I was Fridgin’ Out a few weeks back. So go on, check it out!

Book-wise, I’m trying to finish a couple of reviews, I’m in the middle of reading Stone in a Landslide by Maria Barbal published by Peirene Press which I’m enjoying slowly as it’s a rather slim book and one to savour, and trying to resurrect my Who’s Reading What feature which mysteriously disappeared into the aether. And of course I’m trying to finish The Dark Volume by G.W. Dahlquist and am continuing with A Very Great Profession by Nicola Beauman. Plus I picked up The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley at the library which I have been dying to read.

Am I reading too many books?

I’m not here today 2

30 April, 2010

You can find me Fridgin’ Out at one of my favourite food blogs Umamimart discussing the contents of my fridge.

In the mean-time, I’m getting stuck into The Dark Volume by G.W. Dahlquist, the sequel to his earlier novel The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters which debuted with a splash a few years back. Exciting stuff!

And in the book world, the lovely China Miéville has won the Arthur C. Clarke Award for the third time with his crime noir The City and The City. Plus he’s just published his latest novel Kraken. Can the guy do no wrong? You can read about it here .
