April’s haul

Yes, I bought eight new books in April.

No, my pile of shame isn’t getting any smaller.

(I only read six.)

A good mix of brand new and pretty new fiction here. And a good mix of anglo and international.

There’s the latest Pulitzer winner in Viet Thanh Nguyen’s The Symphathizer; a terrorism thriller in The Association of Small Bombs; and one of the only novels by an African author I’ve ever tried in A. Igoni Barret’s Blackass. Rich people’s problems in The Nest and The Expatriates; and an Aussie book with one of the prettiest damn covers I’ve ever seen in Where the Trees Were.

Happy reading!
