Last weekend, I allowed myself one final visit to the greatest book sale in Malaysia, and got myself these books!
I’ve read (and loved) Sarah Waters’s The Night Watch. Atwood is fast becoming a favourite, and Carter has been on my list of “authors to read all their books”.
I had wanted to take this chance to get to know some new authors, so that’s where Julian Barnes and Hanif comes in.
Of course, before this I had also gotten my hands on Zadie Smith, Anthony Burgess,Peter Carey and a couple of very promising non-fiction.
It’s been a great December of book-buying. Not such a great reading year, but still good, considering that most of the books I read were good, if not exceptional.
So 2012 is coming to a close soon.
How has your year been?
