All-in-all, it was an easy procedure, I feel fine aside from the unrelated allergies kicking my butt right now, and I'm hoping I came out of this with at least some minor super power like x-ray vision or a little mind reading. Right now it just looks like a day of rest renders me unable to sleep. I konked out watching Gilmore Girls earlier, and now I'm wide awake.
So what better time to round up some books that are calling from my TBR? Given, my funky reading moods may mean that I don't get around to these as soon as I'd like, but this is at least what's calling to me.
I grabbed Rat Queens: Sass and Sorcery (volume 1), by Kurtis J. Wiebe and Roc Upchurch, from Interlibrary Loan. I had big plans to read during my transfusion, but napping and TV ended up being the thing that kept my mind off being trapped in a hospital bed. I hate sitting still! Nevertheless, this one is a total winner, and I will probably finished it during lunch at work today.
Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel, is on everyone's lips and blogs lately. When I found it for $6 on Kindle, I took the plunge.
I bought John Saturnall's Feast, by Lawrence Norfolk, months ago. What's not to love about food, the 16th century and Saturnalia? I mean, really?
Sweetness #9, by Stephan Eirik Clark, is lingering on the edge of my mind. Has been for months, Looking back at these picks, it appears I'm in the mood for light sf. I can handle that. I usually get in the mood for sf and historical books this time of year.
Finally, The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt, is one of the books I can see from where I'm typing in bed. It's another book that's been whispering in my ear for months.
What's on your list of whispery, insistent books?
