No more whining about bronchitis, I feel better! I’m still coughing a bit, which is pretty normal after bronchitis, and that’s about it.
I was working a lot lately, but fortunately, not during the worst part of bronchitis, so it was only tiresome at times.
The weather has improved, I’m feeling better, and that means, among other things, books! I bought some new ones: some you can see on the top of the post, and some are below.
Some of the books are not in English; I’ll skip those.
As for the rest, on the picture directly above you can see the Serbian edition of Margaret Atwood’s Hag-Seed. I’ve read it recently, and I loved it: Shakespeare, The Tempest, theater, in part a story of vengeance, but in greater part, a story of finally letting go. Plus a bunch of prison inmates playing in The Tempest. Plus…a lot of things, really. If you love Shakespeare, or theater in general, or Margaret Atwood, go and read this one.
The first book on the upper picture is Go the Fuck to Sleep by Adam Mansbach. It’s a picture book, but, as you can see from the title, it’s not for children; it’s for their tired parents instead. It looks cute, it’s fun (yes, there’s swearing), and if you have ever had trouble convincing your little angel to go to sleep already, you might enjoy this one.
As for the rest of the books, I have yet to read them. They are: The Little Red Chairs by Edna O’Brien, How to Be Both by Ali Smith, A Hologram for the King by Dave Eggers, A Complicated Kindness by Miriam Toews, and Ripley Bogle by Robert McLiam Wilson. I don’t know much about any of them, but they were on sale (7 books for about $8), and I wanted to read The Little Red Chairs for a while (the Irish author got inspired by the Balkan wars), so I got them. Plus, I like random reads.
Have you read anything from this list? Do you have recommendations?
