Random Reads (July 2012)

I love this idea of random chance cuz it’s just so hard to pick what to read next when your TBR is just huge!  I’ve added to many books on my to-read shelf on Goodreads, it’s really not funny. Everytime a book looks the slightest interesting to me, I will add it.  And since, I read pretty much across all genres, I’ve got stacks & stacks of books TO READ.

Thanks to i’m loving books for hosting this meme.  If you wish to participate, then go here.

Now, I’m going to try to go for 2 books (even though I only managed to read 1 last month but I had a really good reason :p).  One from my to-read shelf and another from whatever I’ve got this year.  Since I’m in Australia, some books are just not accessible to me immediately, so I’m going to have to fudge a bit to make sure that I get to read these random books.

To-read shelf:

1st draw: #179 – Monkey Grip by Helen Garner – lucky!! Second Aussie author in a row!  As you can see, I added it to my TBR in October 2010, it’s about time I read it, right?

Book Blub (from Goodreads)

In “Monkey Grip”, Helen Garner charts the lives of a generation. Her characters are exploring new ways of loving and living – and nothing is harder than learning to love lightly. Nora and Javo are trapped in a desperate relationship. Nora’s addiction is romantic love; Javo’s is hard drugs. The harder they pull away, the tighter the monkey grip. A lyrical, gritty, rough-edged novel that deserves its place as a classic of Australian fiction.

From my “got this year” pile:

#24 – Promise Me This by Cathy Gohlke (a frebbie Christian fiction)

Book Blub (from Goodreads)

Spanning the sinking of the “Titanic” to World War I, “Promise Me This” tells the story of one man’s determination to fulfill a promise he made — and of the woman he has grown to love in the process.
