For 2017, I will be reviewing at least one new book a month for my Shelf Life blog series.

Here are the confirmed titles to look forward to, not listed in order of publication date or preference, just how I pulled them off my shelves:

  • Now That It’s Over by O Thiam Chin
  • 「如果世界上的貓都消失了」 by Genki Kawamura (Chinese translated from Japanese)
  • The Wardedited by John Lorinc; Ellen Scheinberg; Tatum Taylor and Michael McClelland
  • The Seven Ages by Louise Glück
  • Heat, Flesh, Trash, Southeast Asian Urban Anthologies (Vol 1,2,3), edited by Cassandra Khaw & Angeline Woon
  • Green Grass, Running Water by Thomas King
  • Wind, Sand and Stars by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
  • 「燈塔」by Christophe Chabouté (Chinese translated from French.)
  • 「暫時無法安放的」Standing Room Only  by 鄧九雲 (Chinese)
  • Tapestries, Short Stories from the Asian Pacific Rim, edited by Sharon Jeroski
  • If on a winter’s night a traveler by Italo Calvino
  • On Beauty by Zadie Smith
  • And The Walls Come Crumbling Down by Tania de Rozario

Some of these are pretty old and quite well known and I just never got a chance to read them, others I picked up while traveling this summer from local publishers in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore.

The list also features a mix of fiction, comic, poetry and non-fiction genres, which is a personal reading trend I’ve come to develop and love.

2017 is shaping up to be a really great year for my Shelf Life! I’m excited for the journeys I’ll be taking with each text. 🙂
