No book reviews, because my mind has not been in the kind of place to take much in while reading recently, due to work and other complications. I have some breathing space now, so hopefully that should change soon.

I have been eyeing my upcoming to read pile*, and offer it here for your perusal in lieu of reviews:

The Angel House - Kerstin Ekman
Lustrum - Robert Harris (sequel to the excellent Imperium)
The Hamilton Case - Michelle de Kretser
Let Me Sing You Gentle Songs - Linda Olsson
Ice - Louis Nowra
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms - NK Jemisin
Night - Elie Wiesel
Looking for Alibrandi - Melina Marchetta
Reunion - Andrea Goldsmith
The Northern Clemency - Philip Hensher

Anyone read any of these?

At some point I am also going to have to find time to reread Love in the Time of Cholera for book club. This isn't entirely a bad thing, as sometimes I feel like I'm the only person in the world who hates that book. Maybe this time I'll discover what everyone else loves about it. Assuming it's not the creepy old man sleeping with his teenage protégé, because if so, that's a lost cause.

Anyway, I have a free evening ahead, so am going to get caught up on Doctor Who, make veggie chilli and write a book review. About a book I love, which is much harder than reviewing books that I hate.

*This is not the entirety of my to read pile, merely the top ten that I skimmed off the wall of books along our hallway.
