Shiny 12!

SNB-logo-small-e1393871908245

Yes, it’s that time again – the latest edition of Shiny is available here.

Thanks to my eye issues, I haven’t got many reviews in this one, and the books I have reviewed were read out loud to me by Mr Litlove. There’s dedication to a cause. Fortunately we really enjoyed them all.

There’s the new novel by Ann Patchett, Commonwealth.

A very funny debut novel about university students and the philosophies of Nietzsche, Confidence.

And a classic boo-boo on my part, a non-fiction title that we had already reviewed in an earlier Shiny, duh, that I’ll post on this blog next.

Do go over and browse all the reviews and features available.

  1. Dearest Litlove,

    this must be so hard for you. I send you lots of love and hugs and hope there are perhaps some compensations – autumn walks, a different kind of thinking time? and certainly renewed appreciation of your husband!

    I look forward to reading the new Shiny. And have I told you how much I loved your essay on Modiano in Numero Cinq? – still thinking about it; quality is much more important than quantity.

    • Oh Jean, you are a darling. Thank you for the hugs and the very kind words. I do get a different kind of thinking time – and plenty of it! But it is a luxury and I when I get to write something, I am much more prepared for it. I’m currently seeing an eye specialist and taking medication. As always, the recovery process is much slower than I hoped, but I AM getting some help now. Cross your fingers I’ll be able to do more soon. xxx
