2014 Book #64: The Enchanted

Aaaand we’ve made it to the last book review of the year! Yay! 64 is a record, though I got close last year. I think I’ve written about every book but one about diabetes. I skipped that one (though it’s excellent) because I’m...

2014 Book #4: Pedro Páramo

2014 Book #4: Pedro Páramo

After a series of long books, I decided to read a short one, though I didn’t think I’d get through it this quickly. Once I picked up Pedro Páramo, I had a hard time putting it down. I read it in two sittings: most of it last night and...

2014 Book #2: The Master and Margarita

2014 Book #2: The Master and Margarita

I don’t even know where to begin with this one, except that, strangely, The Master and Margarita is what I expected The Magus to be, and vice versa. I hadn’t read anything by (or even heard of) Mikhail Bulgakov before The Master and...

2013 Book #49: Dance Dance Dance

2013 Book #49: Dance Dance Dance

Well, that went quickly. Four books in, what, two weeks? Lots of Haruki Murakami. Hear the Wind Sing, Pinball, 1973, and A Wild Sheep Chase were his first three novels. Then, he wrote Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World and Norwegian...

2013 Book #48: A Wild Sheep Chase

2013 Book #48: A Wild Sheep Chase

Three down, one to go. That’s about how I’m feeling now: I’m Murakamied out. But I was right: I liked A Wild Sheep Chase a lot more this time around, though I don’t think it’s for the same reason. Though Hear the Wind...

2013 Book #46: Hear the Wind Sing

2013 Book #46: Hear the Wind Sing

The end of the year is right around the corner, and, thankfully, so is my annual book quota. Four more to go. I have a feeling I’ll make it, especially with the little project I have planned. A couple posts ago, I said I’d like to be...

2013 Book #11: Kafka on the Shore

2013 Book #11: Kafka on the Shore

I’ve been meaning to write this post for about a week, now, but I keep putting it off. I think the lesson I’ve learned here is not to read a Murakami book twice because I won’t like it as much. The only other one I’ve read...

2013 Book #8: Guards! Guards!

2013 Book #8: Guards! Guards!

Terry Pratchett’s novels can be pretty unpredictable, but they are predictably good. I’ve read eight of them now, and I’ve liked them all. (Okay, both of those things are lies, kind of. I’ve actually read eight-and-a-half of...

2011 Book #46: Midnight’s Children

2011 Book #46: Midnight’s Children

I’m not quite sure what to say about Midnight’s Children except that it’s fantastic. Really. If you haven’t read it, head over to your local library and pick it up right now. Disregard your Christmas planning, ignore the hurt...
