[BHE 81] Book Fairs in Singapore (Part 4 of 5)

BHE

Myra here.

It’s Sunday! Time for us to share the books that have hunted us down mercilessly during the past few weeks or so. Several weeks back, I shared about a few of the book fairs that have been happening around Singapore. This is the continuation of my post, as I still managed to visit two other malls. Here is my book loot in the past few weeks.

I am glad to see a few titles here that spoke to me. And so I took them home.

Adult Novels

Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder, Barbara Kingsolver’s The Lacuna, and A Case of Exploding Mangoes by Mohammed Hanif.

Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs, Stephen King’s Four Past Midnight, and The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway (which I would be giving away to a friend as I just realized that this is my second copy of the book).

My penchant for darknesses

Slowly building a collection of John Connolly’s novels: The Unquiet, The Reapers, and The Book of Lost Things which I reviewed here.

A contrast to the dark: glimmers of light

The Tao of Pooh and The Te of Piglet by Benjamin Hoff and Paulo Coelho’s Like the Flowing River.

Favorite Book Loot

I was so happy to find Roald Dahl’s The Umbrella Man and other Stories. I know that this is one of his adult titles. And another Jasper Fforde novel, one of his latest, I think: The Woman Who Died a Lot. And finally, I found the first book in The Lord of the Rings trilogy: The Fellowship of the Ring which I lost several years back. Now I have my own copy again!

How about you, dear friends, what books found their way into your hands this week?
