In My Mailbox, or, The Week of Interesting Books

Dear Blog,
hosted as ever by Kristi over at The Story Siren.
This was an interesting week, in which I strayed from my normal comfort zone of teenage fiction in search of other things, including plays, Chinese journalism, and Ukrainian classics. 

Knife Edge by Malorie Blackman (I read Noughts  & Crosses about a year ago and haven't gotten round to getting hold of the sequel until now)
Dance Dance Dance by Haruki Murakami
The Good Women of China by Xinran
The Importance of being Earnest by Oscar Wilde (I need it for coursework and such)

Once was Lost by Sara Zarr
Guantanamo Boy by Anna Perera (review here)
Death and the Penguin by Andrey Kurkov
How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff (Currently reading, it reminds me a lot of Bonjour Tristesse for reasons I cannot yet explain )

Well, that was my bookish week.  How about yours? 


  1. You've had a good week! I am sure you wil have a great time reading
    Here's what I got In My Mailbox

  2. Great week! I love reading more than one genre or just YA fiction. I love YA books, but there's too much out there for me to read nothing but YA books. Enjoy!

  3. Oh, I read How I Live Now a few years ago - I really liked it. Haven't read the rest of the books you got, but I hope you enjoy them!

    Here's what I got in my mailbox this week :)
