There’s nothing more exciting than a new book in my hands. I don’t know. I just love books. And the past year or so, I’ve been exploring titles and writing genres that’s outside my usual preferences. And today, I ease into a tender, wickedly funny tale of love and terror, sex and suicide, memory and imagination that’s found in a Jeffrey Eugenides book, The Virgin Suicides.
Curiosity in the lives of the virgin Lisbon sisters: Therese, Mary, Bonnie, Lux, and Cecilia, I sometimes can’t help take small peeks in the book’s pages and read reviews online. However, I’ve yet to finish another book and finish a tonne of work before I can actually curl up and enjoy my new book.
This is one of the few items I recently bought over at Avalon.ph. I was hoping they had a copy of this Milan Kundera book but, yes, twas out of stock. I was also looking into getting another one of Jeffrey Eugenides books, Middle Sex. Still working on building the shopping cart to save on shipping. Hehe.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this book but not too much spoilers, please! I’d love to let the story unfold by itself and let my reading slowly lift the shroud of mystery.
How about you guys? Any new book up on your reading list?
