So, it's Sunday. And you know what that means.
Here's what I read this past week in November:
- I Shot You, Babe (DNF)
- Prehistoric Art: The Symbolic Journey of Humankind
- The Laurentine Spy
- Heat Wave (DNF)
- Ruined (DNF)
Have you noticed a proliferation of angel-themed books lately? Well, I have. I even have a few in my TBR pile. So I've decided to do a totally scientific (haha) analysis of whether or not angels are the new vampires. This may actually be easier than I think it will be, since several well-known vampire writers have just released angel-centric novels. I decided to make a reading theme for myself this month and read all the books I have in my TBR that are angel-related:
- Hush, Hush (actually on order from the library, so hopefully I'll get it by December)
- Fallen (the one by Thomas E Sniegoski, not Lauren Kate (note to self, do a comparison of all novels with the title of Fallen))
And speaking of angels... (pause for awkward segway), the holiday season approaches. And that means presents! Enter, the Book Blogger Holiday Swap. It's a secret santa for book bloggers. I think it's a great idea, and I hope all of you join and that I get matched with one of you so I can send you a present. ^_^
Secondly, the dates for the third Mystery Readathon have been scheduled as January 16th-17th, 2010. I had tons of fun with the Mystery Readathon in August, so I'm definitely looking forward to it for January.
I've also decided to join the Women Unbound challenge--but I will post more about that later.
Finally, updating my own reading challenge, M from Alberti's Window talks about The Challenge of the Avant-Garde by Paul Wood and her particular interest in Caillebotte's (Impressionist painter) domestic scenes and how they relate to modernity. It's not exactly a review so much as a thoughtful response, and it's an excellent post. Check it out, and have a lovely week!
