Books: Summer TBR List Update IV

Posted 10 July, 2009 by Li in Books / 0 Comments

I’ve read quite a bunch these past few weeks so it’s time for an update, lol:

  • David Anthony Durham’s Acacia
  • Greg Keyes’s The Born Queen
  • The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien (N)
  • Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: A Trilogy of Four
  • Brian Ruckley’s Bloodheir
  • David Rotenberg’s Shanghai
  • Gary R. Ryan’s Blessings in Disguise (N)
  • Elizabeth Gaskall’s Wives and Daughters
  • Ariana Franklin’s City of Shadows
  • Bohumil Hrabal’s I Served the King of England

I posted this entry back on the 8th but considering that I finished two books today, I decided to revise the list rather than post a new one xD So the remaining books on my list are quite a mixed bag, though there’s quite a bit of fantasy in there (I’ve decided to stop buying fantasy for a while considering how many books are left there); plus, I’ve been quite good—I went to the bookstore a few days ago but I didn’t pick up any new novels save for the Anna Gavalda’s Ensemble C’est Tout (I read the English translation, Hunting and Gathering, but I wanted to read it in the original French).

Aside from tackling the remainder books on this list, I’m also drawing up a list of books to re-read, particularly from my history shelf in preparation for the fall semester; I’m not entirely sure what my duties as TA are yet but it’s best to be prepared 🙂 I’ve firmly decided to take Adams’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: A Trilogy of Four with me in the fall, although it’s rather large and I’m taking a couple of textbooks as well.
