A while ago I made up a quick little meme which enabled bloggers to run through recent books of interest – and it rather caught on, with dozens of bloggers (including, rewardingly, many I’d never heard of) following suit. It was such fun seeing snapshots of different people’s reading and buying – and a nice easy post for bloggers to write!
So, guess what? I fancy doing it again. Do have a go yourself, if you like – whether or not you did it last time. And if you do, pop a note in the comments so I can go over and have a gander!
1.) The book I’m currently reading:
The Rector’s Daughter by F.M. Mayor – everyone and her husband seem to have read and loved this, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. Will you all hate me if I say I’m not bowled over yet?
2.) The last book I finished:
Two is Lonely by Lynne Reid Banks – I re-read all three of the L-Shaped Room trilogy recently, in fact. The first one is still brilliant – the other two not quite as good as I remembered.
3.) The next book I want to read:
Cold Light by Jenn Ashworth – to be honest, it’s been my ‘next book’ for months, but somehow other things always slip in front of it. That doesn’t diminish how excited I am about reading Jenn’s novel!
4.) The last book I bought:
Gentleman into Goose by Christopher Ward – yes, believe it or not Lady into Fox by David Garnett led to a spoof version! Not many copies around, so had to get this shipped over from the US of A.
5.) The last book I was given:
The Magnificent Spinster by May Sarton – came courtesy of lovely Rachel/Book Snob, accompanied by threats if I didn’t read it quick-smart. And I didn’t. But I will…
