I just noticed the other day that my last four bookish purchases were all in red and white tones. That’s a photo opportunity waiting to click. I thought it might be fun to snap this pic with some red heels, and my choice fell upon Irregular Choice from my header photo. I haven’t worn these in ages though I love them to pieces, and I’ve only sported them in one outfit here on the blog, at my cousin’s wedding two years ago.
But back to the books. I’m looking forward to Sarah Waters‘ The Little Stranger, as I loved Tipping The Velvet. I’ve read two books by John Banville (before I started blogging), one of them I loved, the other I found boring, so I don’t quite know what to expect from The Infinities. Them or Us is the last installment in David Moody‘s brilliant Hater-series, which is so thrilling! The book I’m most excited about, however, is Save Me the Waltz by Zelda Fitzgerald. I read a novel about her, Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, a little while back and it left me very curious to read some of her work. It doesn’t show in this pic, but the cover is stunning!
Which books have you recently bought?

The Little Stranger was one of my favourite reads last year, loved it! I hope you enjoy it too. I would like to read more Sarah Waters. P x
I’m glad to hear that, Porcelina, now I’m looking even more forward to it!
Dejlige, dejlige bøger. Har du læst noget af Sarah Waters før? Jeg har nemlig lige købt en af hendes værker (Fingersmith), og jeg er meget spændt på at læse den.
Ja, jeg har læst Fingersmith og Tipping The Velvet. Fingersmith er utrolig underholdende, men der var nogle ting ved den jeg ikke brød mig om. Tipping The Velvet er bare en skide god historie – du kan læse min anmeldelse her.
The New Yorker had a really interesting review of The Infinities at the time it was published. Although I have yet to read it, the review piqued my interest and I have read the other two in the article and loved them both. http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2010/04/05/epic-endeavors
Thanks for the link, Janey – it looks very interesting! Banville is an excellent writer.
Smukke røde bøger! Og åh hvor vil jeg dog gerne læse noget af Sarah Waters snart!
Hun leverer god underholdning i hvert fald!
