Fresh bookishness!

So many books to talk about! Including what’s currently in my stacks and what I’m reading with this year’s reading about writing.

Spring is in the air: there’s talk of romance and new practices (and old ones too).

There’s talk of backlisted fiction, like Sky Lee’s Disappearing Moon Cafe and Helen Oyeyemi’s The Icarus Girl.

And new books, like Anjali Pathak’s The Indian Family Kitchen and Michelle Butler Hallett’s This Marlowe (coming soon).

How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?

(First time here? Please don’t be shy: there’s no such thing as too much bookchat! Please leave a comment, say hello, talk books!)
