That is to say, "Books I'm either reading currently or about to pick up soon." They're not all physically on my bedside table. One is an ebook.
  1. The Thirteenth Tale, by Diane Setterfield
    I started reading this ages ago, but the book ended up getting packed away during our renos last year. It's really good, and weird, and haunting, and about the importance of stories.
  2. Lake of Two Mountains, by Arleen Paré
    A book of poetry I'm reading for a challenge from one of my Goodreads groups. All the poetry is about one specific lake; it's very Canadian -- I'd be able to tell its Canadianness if I didn't already know, even though it's from the east of Canada, and I am from the west.
  3. Celtic Lore and Spellcraft of the Dark Goddess: Invoking the Morrigan, by Stephanie Woodfield
    I've been a follower of the Morrigan for several years. I'm reading this book to find inspiration for deepening my practice. It's from a sort of NeoWiccan POV but it's still accurate abt the goddess herself, so that's not an issue for me.
  4. The Luminaries, by Eleanor Catton
    Another book for that Goodreads challenge. I'm only a few pages in; it's pretty slow going.
  5. Africa in World History
    I picked this up at the library on a whim. I'm a few pages in; would be further if the print were bigger than ant-sized.
  6. Finding Japan: early Canadian encounters with Asia
    Another library whim. Haven't started this one yet.
  7. The World of the Celts
    Less whim-y book from the library but I've yet to crack it.
  8. Who Fears Death, by Nnedi Okorafor
    This one is the one I went to the library for. It's part of my Goodreads challenge and I'll likely crack it when I finish The Thirteenth Tale.
  9. Child of a Hidden Sea, by A.M. Dellamonica
    My copy of this book is signed to me by the author, who I got to meet at the Vancouver Writers Fest. I adored her book Indigo Springs, and I'm excited to read this one from her. Bonus, it fills a spot on the Goodreads challenge.
