After writing sixteen book reviews since July, I now have a stack of reading to catch up on including books I’ve received after being picked up by the Guardian Reader Reviews roundup five times. Between now and the end of January I intend to read:
Nicola Barker, The Yips
Ali Smith, There But For The
Peter O’Toole, Loitering With Intent
Damien Wilkins, The Fainter
And soon after that my MA in Creative Writing classmate, Aorewa McLeod, will have her first novel published – Who Was That Woman, Anyway? I’m looking forward to the launch party and reading the finished novel. I hope to get back to reviewing for Booksellers NZ and Scoop Review of Books at the end of January.
