Seasonal change makes me whimsical. In Cape Town, Summer left with a bang and a huge heatwave. Autumn has arrived with a bite in the air. The Broke and the Bookish and their friends today share books TBR this season.
Things at school are getting scarier and busier. Reading is contributing to my sanity more than I could have imagined.
Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson – I am struggling to finish this beyond compare. I was a little over-ambitious with my prospects for the year.
The Emperor of All Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee – I start my short Pathology Rotation tomorrow. I think this book will keep me motivated.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer – because TBTB recommends it, and because the only GoodReads group I belong to is reading it, and because it looks awesome.
Luna by Julie Anne Peters – with all the LGBTQ drama in the media at the moment, I am compelled to read more. Especially since I’m in the midst of trying to make my campus a safer place for students of all genders.
The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown – he’s intelligent and thrilling. My brain needs to grow.
Blink by Malcolm Gladwell – my mentor suggested this book to me. He also suggested the Diving Bell and the Butterfly, which I am yet to obtain.
I am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced by Nujood Ali – I’m just asking for trouble by reading this, but who cares. It will inspire me or something, I’m sure.
Delirium by Lauren Oliver – I’m asking myself a lot of questions about love. Might as well take advantage of the moment.
Perfume by Patrick Suskind – because I think it will be good.
Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks – because I’ve never read anything by Sparks, and because we were shown a clip of the movie in first year for an ethical case. I still haven’t watched the movie, so I might as well read the book.
