About my libraryMy collection of books is extremely versatile. I enjoy the great classics, as well as contemporary fiction, novels from the European modernism, historical fiction, feminist fiction, short stories, and even the occational chick-lit novel (I'm very picky about those, though).
I try not to buy books that I know I am only going to read once, but it's been known to happen anyway ;-) Also, I NEVER throw away books. I prefer to provide them with "new homes". Now that I am experiencing some space-problems in my tiny flat, I suspect I will have to decrease my permanent collection soon.

The Song of Achilles is a thing of joy. Thank you so much for the recommendation.

I took up your recommendation of The Song of Achilles and I also ordered a copy for myself.

Yeah, I love Sarah Waters! I still have to read Tipping the Velvet, apart from that I've read all of her other works though. The Night Watch is one of my favourite books, it's wonderful. Affinity is great too! What did you make of American Gods? I've been meaning to read some Gaiman, would you recommend him?
Oh I'm so glad you liked the Donoghue book. :) I think it's a real undiscovered gem, it sold very few copies compared to her others. Probably the best choice next would be Room, her most recent novel, which has been picking up awards and praise everywhere. It even got nominated for the Booker! It deserved it though, it's a wonderful read, and very different from the works that came before it. Donoghue's known for writing historical fiction or contemporary lesbian-themed fiction, though that doesn't fully cover all the genres she's covered. She's written a book of fairy tales, for instance. I've mainly read the historical stuff - The Sealed Letter would be my pick of those. Life Mask is good too. She's a pretty prolific writer though, I haven't read them all!
You're so welcome! I really enjoyed picking out the books for you - let me know what you think of them. :)

I just received my SantaThing books--thank you very much! I've been eager to read both The Master and Margarita and Her Fearful Symmetry for ages now. I'm looking forward to tackling them in the new year.
