While being a bit stunned that summer came and went just like that, I couldn’t be more excited for fall. (yes, it’s my birthday season, too, but hey – I really do love fall). It’s finally time to stay in and read. Here’s what’s currently stacking up on the bedside table:
1. Roter Mond
I’ve been a lifelong mystery and fantasy aficionado and my dad knows it. Thus he gifted me Benjamin Percy’s Red Moon and I cannot wait to get to it. Just what I need for tonight’s 15 hour flight home to Shanghai.
2. Die Bienen.
My Grandmother has been reading this one on her iPad and loves it. Since I’m a little less technically advanced than my 91 year-old grandmother, she got me the hardcover edition. The German version has a much prettier cover than the English one and I’ve been on a “honoring the mother tongue” mission and have been reading more in German.
3. Morgen kommt ein neuer Himmel
The english title is “The Life List”and I bought this in the airport book shop. I’m looking forward to a novel about a mother that shows her daughter how to make her dreams come true. Can dreams provide happiness? I will find out. Reviews have been very positive and I need something light and entertaining, something to laugh and possibly cry over. (I’m a big book cryer, so it won’t take to much).
What are you reading this fall?
