More books picked up this week:
The Art of The Engine Driver and The Gift of Speed by Steven Carroll - after reading and loving The Lost Life last week Antipodean Owl suggested I might like Carroll's earlier work. These books are the first two in a trilogy set in the Australian suburbs from the 1950's - a very different time and space to The Lost Life but I fell so in love with Carroll's writing style I am definitely going to give them a go.
Man Walks Into a Room by Nicole Krauss - I have been meaning to pick this one up since I read The History of Love earlier in the year (still my favourite read of the year so far I think). I have a feeling this author won't let me down.
Graceling by Kristen Cashore - you are probably thinking this book is a little outside my normal reading areas - and you would be right! I actually picked this one up for my partner. He had seen it in a bookshop but as it was an export it was quite expensive so luckily our library has a copy. When I read the description of this one I actually thought it sounded quite interesting even though it definitely isn't the type of book I would normally read. Has anyone read/heard of this one?
