What I’m reading, and what I’m looking forward to reading: a very partial list.

I’ve only recently discovered the magic that is an inter-library loan system. Here I have two long-since out-of-print novels by Lord Dunsany, the Anglo-Irish fantasist who has influenced the likes of Neil Gaiman and H.P. Lovecraft. Funny how someone felt the need to cross out his title (repeatedly; and these are books from two separate libraries, too). Irish nationalists hiding in libraries all over Boston!

For Love of Animals, as previously discussed—I’m hoping my mom (a devout Catholic, in case I hadn’t mentioned that already) and I can read it at the same time and I can include some of her impressions in my book appreciation post.

And while we’re on the topic of Christianity + activism, here’s a book my sister gave her, which I’m also very interested to read:

I met Renée Rosen at the Midwest Literary Festival all the way back in 2007. This is going to be a juicy read!

 

P1110633

An incredibly thoughtful Christmas gift from Todd & Bill! (They’d given me the first Wolf Gift novel awhile back—also autographed. So so nice.)

 

P1110635

 

Humans of New York, a gift from my literary agency. Beautiful book, beautiful photographs.

 

P1110641

P1110647

Another reason I’m excited to have a kitchen come spring—Amber Shea Crawley’s Practically Raw Desserts, which I won on a Chic Vegan giveaway! (Review forthcoming.)

No longer timely, I know (you can tell how long I’ve been intending to post this), but this Christmas card from Jen made me laugh out loud!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
