I last posted a book list about a month ago.
Here are my recent reads, most of which are courtesy of the Toronto Public Library .
- Rosa (Jonathan Rabb) - blogged briefly about this here.
- Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry. (Leanne Sharpton) (previous post here)
- The Professional (Robert. B. Parker)
- Town House (Tish Cohen) - odd but lovable set of characters. Engaging read.
- The Taken (Inger Ash Wolfe) - author's true identity is unknown. Must get on hold list for second book in this series of thrillers set in Ontario.
- Dream Dresses (Hilary Scharper) (previous post here)
- Wednesday's Child (Peter Robinson) - released via Book Crossing on metro in Rome
- Sudden Mischief (Robert B. Parker) - - released via Book Crossing at Fiumicino (Rome) airport
- Cosmas or the Love of God (Pierre de Calan). A young man works to discover whether he has a vocation. Set in a Trappist monastery.
- Food Rules (Michael Pollan) - A precis of his previous books. The rules, without all the science.
- So Much for That (Lionel Shriver) - listened to the audiobook. Up there for the best read this month.
- Boldface Names (Shinan Govanin) - fun, particularly for (toronto) locals!
- The World More Full of Weeping (Robert J. Wiersma) - tiny, perfect, novella
- Blood Safari (Deon Meyer) - thriller set in South Africa. My first read by this author, and I'll definitely look for more.
Now reading: Juliet Naked (Nick Hornby) - there's a video of Hornby talking about his book at the link. He's back to his old High Fidelity stomping ground, talking about music and love, and their intersection!
