Having very much appreciated Oblivion, by Lebedev, I decided to read his latest novel, The Goose Fritz, which actually tackles some similar themes.

The Moonstone

The Goose Fritz: 
Two years ago, I was stunned by the quality of Sergei Lebedev’s writing in Oblivion. So I HAD to try his upcoming one (March 19). I just started. It’s related to Russian history.

Don Quixote:
Continuing to thoroughly enjoying this classic. Quite hilarious!

The Moonstone:
And still listening to this classic – 22 hours in audio. It really helps that the edition I chose has a cast of different narrators, it makes it easier to follow the different levels of the story. I think I know what’s going on with this mysterious precious stone, but I may be totally wrong!

The Library of Lost and Found
“When Martha discovers a clue within a book that her grandmother may still be alive, she becomes determined to discover the truth. As she delves deeper into Zelda’s past, she unwittingly reveals a family secret that will change her life forever”.
Books? Library? Clues? I’m in!
By the author of The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper

A Deadly Affection:
Another book received during BEA in Chicago (2016!) that I have not read yet…
“In 1907 New York, a psychiatrist, Dr Genevieve Summerford, must prove her patient’s innocence…or risk being implicated in a shocking murder”. Should be good.

HHhH
“A seemingly effortlessly blend of historical truth, personal memory, and Laurent Binet’s remarkable imagination, HHhH—an international bestseller and winner of the prestigious Prix Goncourt du Premier Roman—is a work at once thrilling and intellectually engrossing, a fast-paced novel of the Second World War that is also a profound meditation on the nature of writing and the debt we owe to history”.
About time to read/listen to this book. I had so loved The Seventh Function of Language
