Hosted by the lovely Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea.
My usual Saturday morning ritual was hampered slightly today by copious amounts of ice, after it rained and all the snow froze overnight. So it was kind of like skating down the road, instead. But never fear - I came home armed with vegetables, veggie burgers, and a nice little stack of library books (after promising myself I'd just be returning stuff today...)
Megan McCafferty - Bumped
A dystopian world in which only teenagers can get pregnant.
Christopher Isherwood - Goodbye To Berlin
A collection of interconnected short stories set in 1930s Berlin, focusing on characters threatened by the Nazis' increasing power. (The story of Sally Bowles would later become Cabaret.)
György Dragomán - The White King
A Hungarian novel about life behind the Iron Curtain, from the perspective of eleven year old Djata.
(This will count towards my 2013 Translation Challenge.)
