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 bookbridgr.com) 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!
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!
