November 2010 Reads

Goodness, but November was an incredibly awesome month, re reading [sad, that I have to specify, haha]. I liked most of what I read this month — and I feel so accomplished that I got to blog, in one way or another, about the books I read. [Especially considering that I was all lazy and blogger-fatigue-y for October.] Well. Anyhooey. Here are the books I read this November. The links lead to my thoughts!

  1. Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader, by Anne Fadiman.
  2. The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet, by Reif Larsen.
  3. A Plea for Eros, by Siri Hustvedt.
  4. The Duchess, by Jude Deveraux.
  5. The Blind Assassin, by Margaret Atwood. [While Reading] [Post-Read Thoughts]
  6. The Pleasure of the Text, by Roland Barthes.
  7. Nightmare Alley, by William Lindsay Gresham.
  8. The Slaves of Solitude, by Patrick Hamilton.
  9. My Fantoms, by Théophile Gautier.
  10. House of Leaves, by Mark Z. Danielewski. [Part 01] [Part 02] [Part 03] [Part 04]
  11. How to Breathe Underwater, by Julie Orringer.
  12. Madame Bovary, by Gustave Flaubert; in the new translation by Lydia Davis.

December ought to be quaking in its furry boots. Don’t fail me now — let’s end with a bang. Or, more aptly, with Sasha in a corner of the room on New Year’s Eve, shaking and crying with joy.

Happy December, lovelies.

  1. that is a great month of books, sadly mine was pretty pathetic due to schoolwork but I do hope by the end of December I end on a good note.

  2. Ah Sasha, your reading efforts are enviable. Not sure what happened to me this month, I think I was drowned by Finkler and I just never managed to surface and woe is my blog, which has suffered so as a result of my inability to actually review Finkler!

  3. @ Zoe and @ Justine — Thanks, dears. As I say this a month later, November’s reading paved the way for an as-awesome 2010 exit. :’)
