I recently read An Unnecessary Woman by Rabih Alameddine and from it I added two books to my TBR list. The first one is The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa. I’ve always wanted to read something by Pessoa because he is such a literary legend but I’ll admit I felt a bit apprehensive as to where to start. After reading a few quotes from this book however, I’ve decided to start with The Book of Disquiet. (GoodReads)
The second book I added is The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid. I was intrigued by this book because of the effect it has on a character in Alameddine’s book and Hamid has also been shortlisted for many top lit prizes so I’m fairly sure it’ll be a very good book. (GoodReads)
Terry Pratchett passed away recently and I decided to do a post about his Discworld series and in so doing decided, I, too, needed to embark on the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett. The series is made up of around 40 books so there’ll be no shortage of reading material once I get going. (GoodReads)
A new and highly anticipated novel came out this month and I had to add it to my TBR list. The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro is quite a big deal at the moment since it is the author’s latest offering in a decade. It is said to be a little of a departure from his previous novels since it is set in Arthurian Britain but that just makes me even more interested. (GoodReads)
The last addition to the TBR this month is The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton which has caught my eye because firstly lots of people are talking about this book and secondly it won the Specsavers National Book Award so I reckon it’s got to be good! (GoodReads)
