Monthly Round-up: January 2017

How is it the end of January already?

Books Read:
Murder of the Century by Paul Collins
The Sellout by Paul Beatty
The Bullet Catch by John Gaspard
The Miser’s Dream by John Gaspard
Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie

Reviews Posted:
The Book of Strange New Things by Michael Faber
The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
The Vegetarian by Han Kang
How Right You Are Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse

This “working ahead” thing is great. I slid February’s reviews around to accommodate The Sellout and Murder of the Century because I was excited about both. Ideally, The Sellout would have gone up with The Vegetarian for a 2016 Man Booker Prize combo. There may be theme-months forthcoming, but February is shaping up to be a month of odds-and-ends:

Upcoming Reviews in February:
Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier
The Sellout by Paul Beatty
Murder of the Century by Paul Collins
The Tale of the Unknown Island by Jose Saramago (translated)
-Eli Marks 1-3 (The Ambitious Card, The Bullet Catch, and The Miser’s Dream) by John Gaspard
My Name Is Red by Orhan Pamuk (translated)
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
