My Week in Books (18/11/12)

This week’s selections . . .

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

  1. Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti
    Rossetti’s most famous epic poem. A twisted and pre-Raphelite exploration of female sexuality, capitalism and the Victorian marriage market.
  2. Major Barbara by George Bernard Shaw
    Major Barbara is the estranged daughter of Andrew Undershaft, Earl and arms dealer. As a Major in the Salvation Army she instinctively rejects his morality of blood and gunpowder until the SA’s acceptance of his generous donation shakes her beliefs to the core.
  3. Republics of the Mind by James Robertson
    Another review copy! A new edition of Robertson’s shorter fiction with stories both nightmarish and real, and characters who are heroic even in defeat. Look out for the review and TTR’s next giveaway next week!
  4. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
    The second instalment of Taylor’s ‘Smoke and Bone’ Trilogy. Avoiding spoilers so all I’ll say is this is gonna be good.


So, over to you! What have you been reading this week?
