What are you currently reading?
Muriel Marbery – The Elegance of the Hedgehog
After I mentioned it in my Friday Finds, a forum friend said he’d just finished this book and asked if I would like his copy as he was just going to donate it to a charity shop. I’m about halfway through this one and I’m unsure what I think of it actually. The writing is incredibly elegant, but the prose is a little more heavy-going than I’ve read more recently (I’ve mostly stuck to rather light fare as I don’t have much reading time and can only snatch short moments here and there, which isn’t conducive to more thoughtful material much of the time). It is very good, but I find it’s taking longer to digest than my “fluffy pudding” novels from the young adult section of the library. Sometimes you just need a fine meal instead of a dessert…
Sarah Singleton – The Poison Garden
I’ve not had much reading time yet due to all the festive pressures, so I’m only about a third of the way into this young adult novel. However, I am enjoying it immensely! I’ve previously read only one novel by this author (Century) and was impressed – this one promises to be just as compelling!
What did you recently finish reading?
Nothing! I didn’t finish anything at al lthis week, due to the aforementioned festive pressures…
What do you think you’ll read next?
All borrowed from the young adult section of the local library…
- Maureen Johnson – The Name of the Star
I spotted this on various blogs and featured in my Friday Finds as I’m a bit of a Ripper nut and couldn’t resist.
- Lauren Kate – Torment (Fallen 2)
I recently read the first one in the series, so I thought I’d see how it continues as it wasn’t a bad start.
- Laura Powell – The Game of Triumphs
I just love the cover and the blurb on the back was so cryptic I decided to take it home with me.
- Sarah Singleton – Heretic
I recently enjoyed Century by this author and thought I’d try this one featuring a girl accused of being the daughter of a Witch. Intriguing stuff – I love historical fiction!
