New books and Secret Santa

I can't believe we're working our way through November already and that it's almost time for Christmas again. And that means almost time for the baby to finally be here too... time is definitely flying!

And since it's almost time for Christmas, the book blogging community is getting ready as well - it's time to sign up for the Book Blogger Holiday Swap. Sign up before November 12 and you'll be sent the name of the blogger to whom you need to send a holiday gift. What fun!

And speaking of presents, I needed to kill some time in town this week and ended up at a bookstore of course. Here's what I got:
  • The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
  • The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
  • The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
  • Gone by Michael Grant
  • Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
  • Nation by Terry Pratchett
Which one do you think I should start with? :-)

I didn't really enjoy The Angel's Game when I read it a couple of weeks back. I hope you have better luck with it.

I have both, Oryx and Crake, and Nation on my shelf at the moment. I'm hoping to get to the Pratchett soon, so it'll be fun to compare notes.

Heard wonderful things about The Knife Of Never Letting Go, so looking forward to your review.

Which one to start with? I wouldn't know... Blindfold yourself, and pick one :P
