Having recently been on holiday for a week I am now in the enviable position of having caught up with myself reading-wise, excepting John Galsworthy’s Forsyte Saga which I recently bought to re-read. I am letting that sit for a while as I saw the TV adaptation on DVD too recently. Well, that’s my excuse for not immediately reading a nine-book tome with a few “interludes”! I did enjoy the novels years ago, though, so I am sure I’ll get around to them again soon enough.
Because of my zero backlog, I have therefore purchased a few books on which to embark next ;-). In print form, I have purchased a mere three novels: All Yours by Claudia Pineiro from Argentina; Anger Mode by Stefan Tegenfalk from Sweden; and Dregs by Jorn Lier Horst from Norway. On Kindle, thanks to a tip from Laura about a cheap price offer, I’ve decided to be brave and attempt a book by the apparently pretty up-front Roger Smith, in this case Mixed Blood (South Africa). I hope these will keep me occupied for a week or two, in between writing up a backlog of reviews.
