It’s Friday! What are you reading this weekend?

I seem to have hit a bit of a wall in my reading this week – I may possibly have become a little too obsessed with Peter Quinn in Homeland.  But we’ve now watched all the Homeland there is to watch, so hopefully my reading will take precedence again!

I did go back to Bleak House again and although I’m enjoying it when I’m reading it, I have no urge to actually pick it up.  Two review books did fall through my letterbox though, (thanks  so I’ll mostly be reading those this weekend I think!

The Chimes by Anna Smaill comes out on 12 February, published by Sceptre.  This one sounds really intriguing, about a strange world where music has replaced the written word and memories are forbidden.

Wolf Winter by Cecilia Ekback is also published on 12 February by Hodder & Stoughton.  Set in the beautifully bleak landscape of Swedish Lapland, this is a historical fiction which sounds like it is going to be mysterious, intense and wonderful!

Here’s a little wrap up of what I’ve read this week and what I’ll be reading next!

I finished One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey, and loved every word of this book.  It has gone straight to my favourites shelf and I’ll be forcing everyone I know to read it if they haven’t already done so!

I then picked up We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo but sadly I just couldn’t connect with this one.  I didn’t like the writing style, I can’t stand books with no speech marks, and the main character was very irritating to me, so unfortunately I gave up on this one!

I’m now reading Gone by Rebecca Muddiman.  This is a copy I received for review via bookbridgr and is due to be published in the UK on 15 January.  I’m not far into it yet, but so far so good! I think it’s going to be gripper!

What are your reading plans for the weekend?

This weekend I shall be continuing with Bleak House. I’m around 100 pages in now, and really enjoying it. 

I’ll also be reading Daughter by Jane Shemilt, a story about the family of a teenage girl who goes missing. Good stuff so far!

It’s Friday!  Time to share what I’ll be reading over the weekend.

I am currently reading The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson.  I was really grabbed right from the beginning, but it has tailed off a little … hopefully it picks up again soon as I ordered the next two in the trilogy before I’d reached 100 pages!

I’m also currently reading Bleak House by Charles Dickens (read about my ‘read the classics’ challenge here!), so I will be continuing with that for the foreseeable future!

Hopefully I will finish The Final Empire either today or tomorrow and then I will be picking up Paper Swans by Jessica Thompson, which I received for review from Hodder & Stoughton (thank you!).
