I think spring (and possibly summer) has arrived here today! Warm weather makes it a lovely lazy time for reading – if you have the time! By the time you read this, I’ll have my head buried in textbooks (oh, and The Casual Vacancy). Being snowed under doesn’t stop me buying books though! Here’s what followed me home this week:
That book that everyone’s reading. I’ve found The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling a little slow to start, but I think that’s because there’s so many characters to set up and establish relationships with. And yes, I did buy it on day of release!
I’m still on a Stella Rimington
kick – Present Danger and Illegal Action are two of the three I’ve been able to find so far. I don’t think I’ll bother to fill in the missing numbers, I’ll just read sequentially with what I have – #1 (At Risk, currently in transit), #3 (Illegal Action), #5 (Present Danger), #6 (Rip Tide) and #7 (The Geneva Trap).
After a lot of discussion, The Dinner
by Herman Koch was picked as my book club’s read for October. I think it sounds good, but other members who have read it weren’t very keen. Have you read this?
Please do check out our host for October, Parchment Girl, where you will find a list of the blogs participating this week.
