Did I read all of the books mentioned in my previous Latest book buys post? You bet I didn’t! I’m three quarters of the way through Flowers in the Attic (what a bitch that grandmother is!), I didn’t finish Let’s Go Play at the Adams’ and Midnight Sun is still sitting on my side table. But hey, an evergrowing pile of books isn’t going to stop any reader from buying yet more books, is it?
I’ve been reading a lot of Japanese fiction this year and my latest book buys are by Japanese authors. I used to live and work in Japan, so as well getting the chance to read some fantastic novels, I’ve also been able to experience this wonderful country again vicariously.
