brief history of seven killings

It’s Monday September 22nd, What Are You Reading?

brief history of seven killingsI’m back from a fantastic few days at SIBA, which I’ll be recapping later this week, and I even had some time to squeeze in a bit of reading yesterday. It feels like Fall is here to stay and I’m getting super excited for some of the books I have lined up. I’ve been hearing great things about Charles Blow’s Fire Shut Up in My Bones since BEA and finally picked it up. If you’re curious about the book, Charles shared an incredible selection in the New York Times over the weekend. I just barely started A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James, but it’s already so rich and complex. I’m really excited to have a book I can spend some good, focused time with.

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

  • I haven’t heard of either of these, but they book look interesting, especially A Brief History of Seven Killings!

  • Sarah Says Read

    Ditto what Finley Jayne said.

    And this Monday I’m reading “Dawn” by Octavia Butler for Diversiverse and it’s really weird and good so far, and hopefully will be reading more of “What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions” before I go to bed tonight.

    • I’m kind of in love with books that are a little weird, so I’m definitely going to be looking out for your thoughts!

  • Vasilly

    Both books are already on my reading list! I hope you enjoy them. Have you read anything by Marlon James before?

  • Sounds like you’re doing some goo-oood reading! Me, too…finally. Gah! Why does it have to be so hard to choose?

  • These both sound interesting, especially Seven Killings. Also, LOVE the little calender widget thing for your blog archive!!

  • Sounds like you have some lovely books on the go. I’m reading Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont by Elizabeth Taylor currently.

  • I’d kind of forgotten about Fire Shut Up In My Bones. I can’t wait to hear what you think! I’m taking a break from Liar Temptress Soldier Spy to read Stone Mattress. And The Bone Clocks is up next, so I’m SUPER excited.
