Interlude.. New Books!

I had planned to share my thoughts about either Every Seventh Wave or The Best of all Possible Worlds today, but I have been hit with another cold since this weekend and my head does not deal well with the foggy feeling that usually accompanies colds, so instead.. I’m giving you a picture of books I bought recently.

I had occasion to visit Amsterdam last week (Bas won free tickets to see Biffy Clyro’s concert – which was great even with a slight fever and said cold). Every time I visit Amsterdam I look for bargain books in English. I was a little amazed at my finds. So many of these have been on my wish list for a long time. Mostly because of the wonderful Ana (or in any case for the top three ones).

Here goes:

Incoming books.. february

Yes, your eyes do not deceive you, I managed to find:

  • Redemption in Indigo by Karen Lord
  • The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugines
  • Delusions of Gender by Cordelia Fine
  • Love in a Cold Climate by Nancy Mitford
  • In Other Rooms, Other Wonders by Daniyal Mueenuddin

in one go :D

Any you would particularly suggest I start with? Or would you perhaps like to read one together as a sort-of improvised read along? Either way, I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!

  1. I just finished In Other Rooms, Other Wonders and still can’t decide what I thought of it. I’d love to hear your thoughts! And The Virgin Suicides is creepy and wonderful. I hope you enjoy it.

  2. Love in a Cold Climate is one of my favourite books; I love Nancy Mitford’s wit! Hopefully it will help cheer you up until you get over your cold :)

  3. I’ve got a copy of The Virgin Suicides. I loved the film and also loved Middlesex so looking forward to reading this at some point. Enjoy your finds!

  4. Do start with Eugenides! I am curious to know where you got the books and if you also have suggestions for used book stores in Amsterdam that you love going to!

  5. Alllllllllllllllllllllll the books….

    (just wanted to share your joy really, I don’t have anything important or intelligent to say about any of them!)

  6. Oh also Delusions of Gender sounds kind of cool and interesting. Will be fascinated to see what you say on that one.

  7. Nice stack! I would start with In Other Rooms, Other Wonders, because the title intrigues, and I have heard a lot of good things about it. Also because you are particularly erudite, and I would love to hear what you have to say about it. Get better soon!

  8. I hope you feel better soon. I haven’t read any of these books but they all look perfect to curl up with.

  9. Delusions of Gender Delusions of Gender Delusions of Gender. Read that one! That’s the one. You should read that one. Amazing finds all though!

  10. The Virgin Suicides is a lovely book, but they all look amazing!

  11. Redemption in Indigo!!! (That being said, the only other two I’ve read from your stack are Virgin Suicides, which was so long ago I barely remember it, and the Mitford, which I’m the only book blogger ever to not like.)

  12. Great! I haven’t read The Virgin Suicides but I remember the movie creeping me out a bit.

  13. Oh, The Virgin Suicides has some beautiful language. Not as good as Middlesex, of course.

  14. The Virgin Suicides is a great film and I really thought of reading the book when I saw the movie for the first time – shame on me – some months ago.

  15. If you’re interested I have Delusions and could use a smart reading partner (non-fic is my nemesis).

One of the things I love about book blogging is that it enables conversation. Please don't hesitate to share your thoughts!
