First, what I got this month…
As soon as I found out that a bookstore in my city has Little Black Classics I went and bought one (I don’t know why just one), and then a few weeks later I bought three other books because…well…how could you not?! I already read Femme Fatale(Maupassant) and Mrs Rosie and the Priest (Boccaccio) and really enjoyed them. A short story from Maupassant actually gave me an idea for a short movie. And Boccaccio…well, if you haven’t read him yet, you have to! 14th century literature is something else. It was a surprise for me since it was the first time I ventured in that time period’s literature.
I got Jim Thompson’s book just because the cover caught my eye (guilty!), but I already started reading it and I like it so far! It’s twisted in its own particular way, so I recommend it for anyone who loves noir but also murder/ psychological stories.
OK…I never read Agatha Christie (I know, I know…), hence I decided it’s time to start this adventure. I always wanted to read her books but never knew where to start, so while I was in the bookstore I saw a bunch of her books exposed for sale and I just picked one at random(Three Act Tragedy). We’ll see how it goes 🙂 I’ll probably do a review on this one.
I finished the volume The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, and of course I had to get this one. I’m kind of postponing starting it because then I will read it and feel sad again that it’s over. I LOVE SHERLOCK SO MUCH.
So many firsts this month. This is my first Murakami book and I can’t wait to read it.
