#AW80Books January Round – up


If you have written something and I’ve not included it, shout at me and wave your arms in the comments section below.

Sarah has read ‘Americanah’ (U.S.A and Nigeria) by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and I am currently reading ‘The Elephant Keepers Children’ (Denmark) by Peter HΓΈeg and about to start ‘The Name of the Rose’ by Umberto Eco (Italy).

I don’t think I’ve ever read a book set in Italy (The Da Vinci code doesn’t count), and my only knowledge of this book comes from watching the film with my parents. I was about 25 at the time but I still had to pretend to have nodded off for an excruciating Christian Slater sex scene. That’s the beauty of books, no one’s dad has to make a corny, cringe-worthy joke and no one’s mum has to make tea for the family to be able to get through the steamy bits.

This is what other people have been up to…
