Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

On Esme's Bookshelf

Books I read in August (post-Spain)

The Villa by Nora Roberts.
The Kneebone Boy by Ellen Potter.
Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire. Volume 1 in the Wicked Years.
Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire. Volume 2 in the Wicked Years. Lacked the driving force that Elphaba (the wicked witch) gave to Wicked, but had its moments.
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. Book 1 of Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
Girl with Curious Hair by David Foster Wallace.
