My reading list for April

readinglist

In March I read

I know, not much at all, but considering The Magic Mountain is over 1.000 pages and not THAT entertaining, I might get away with it.

Let’s move on to April. On my list are:

  • The Garden of Eden by Ernest Hemingway
  • a few books for review from Dreamspinner Press and Torquere Books
  • Then I need to get a move on my One, Two, Theme challenge. So, I think I will go for another book from that list. Not sure which one will catch my eye yet.

  1. Pity The Magic Mountain wasn’t that great. Or maybe it was?

    I can’t get my hands on (free or swapped) steampunk books. Maybe later this year. I’m not doing great on challenges either. But the year is still young!

    • Actually, Judith, it was not bad at all. I very much like Mann’s style of writing. The way he describes things is absolutely wonderful. It was just a bit lenghty at times and it was hard then to go through with it. How he managed to write over 1.000 pages about people in a sanatorium where absolutely nothing happens is admirable, though.

      • Maybe I should re-read this book. Just last week I read another book about a sanatorium (in Finland, this time). It’s called Your Presence is Requested at Suvanto, by Maile Chapman. I read it for my real-life book group.

        In most of the book, very little happens, although that little bit does work its way into something much bigger. But it was very atmospheric and well wrtten.

    • Angie, I don’t think it is. How strange that they haven’t got it. Maybe you can request it?
