Here's what I bought:
- Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel - I make it a point to read the Booker winner every year.
- The City and the City by China Mieville - It's supposed to be a fusion of the fantasy and the detective genre.
- The Lost City of Z by David Grann - I have always been fascinated by the Amazon.
- Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl - I haven't read young adult fiction for a long time and this sounds like the perfect read. I've been hearing a lot of good things about it.
As you can see, I've a taste for sensational and gothic fiction lately, that's why I bought Daphne Du Maurier's Jamaica Inn, Dianne Setterfield's The Thirteenth Tale, Lewis's The Monk, and Ellen Wood's East Lynne, which is said to be the "grandmother" of sensational novels. (Oh, I forgot: I didn't actually buy East Lynne. A good friend gave it to me.)
So now that I got my retail therapy fix, it's now time for some serious reading!
