I’ve decided to participate in Bookjourney’s It’s Monday! What are you reading? again this week. Hopefully writing this post in advance (rather than at 11pm on the Monday night!) will mean I get to visit a few more different blogs this week.
No changes from last week. I would say they are both heavy going books, but actually now I’ve started getting into The Picture of Dorian Gray it’s going pretty quickly.
All About Love: The Anatomy of An Unruly Emotion- Lisa Appignanesi. This is a book about the mind, psychology and love. So far she seems to be drawing a lot on personal experience, and there is only a very personal psychology element, but I am only about 18 pages in! I picked it up in a bookshop all the way back in January and started reading it right there but somehow never went back to it until now. It’s been a long time since I read a psychology book so I’m looking forward to this one.
The Picture of Dorian Gray- Oscar Wilde is another one which has been on the TBR pile for almost a year. I downloaded it free to my kindle when I got it (the kindle) in December, but it has been on my wishlist since I started The Rory List. In fact it was someone on BCF who started me wanting to read The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Finished Last Week.
Irv’s Odyssey: Lost in a Looking Glass- Irving H. Podolsky was a book I read as a review request from the author. I enjoyed it more than I had expected to and am looking forward to finding out what happens to Irv next. In this book he manages to fall into a job directing porn, before switching to work in a mental hospital.
Cockatoos- Quentin Blake was my Children’s Hour pick last week. Professor Dupont’s Cockatoos are so sick of him doing and saing the same thing every single day that they decide to play a trick on him and hide. We follow Professor Dupont as he searches for them
Added to the TBR
All She Ever Wanted- Roseline Noonan was given to me by Kensington via netgalley. For as long as she could remember Chelsea wanted a child. But when her child came along she struggled, her baby constantly cried, she felt nmb, and depressed. Then one day her baby disappears, and Chelsea can’t remember what happened.
Irv’s Odyssey: To the Light and Beyond, and Seeking the Way Home- Irving H. Podolsky were both sent to me by the author. They continue the story started in Irv’s Odyssey: Lost in a Looking Glass.
