Books on my Bedside Table
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.
- •The Thirteenth Tale, by Diane SetterfieldI 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.
- •Lake of Two Mountains, by Arleen ParéA 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.
- •Celtic Lore and Spellcraft of the Dark Goddess: Invoking the Morrigan, by Stephanie WoodfieldI'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.
- •The Luminaries, by Eleanor CattonAnother book for that Goodreads challenge. I'm only a few pages in; it's pretty slow going.
- •Africa in World HistoryI 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.
- •Finding Japan: early Canadian encounters with AsiaAnother library whim. Haven't started this one yet.
- •The World of the CeltsLess whim-y book from the library but I've yet to crack it.
- •Who Fears Death, by Nnedi OkoraforThis 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.
- •Child of a Hidden Sea, by A.M. DellamonicaMy 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.
