I’ve had a really, really good reading week, so I thought I’d share it with you guys. I won’t talk about all the books in too much depth though, as I’m saving that for my monthly wrap-up. (This post is mostly a pathetic excuse to get away from all the tags I’ve been doing lately. I like to have a bit of diversity on my blog, so a week of just tags seems too much.)
What I read
The Sign of Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
This is the second Sherlock Holmes novel. I absolutely adored the first novel, but I was just a little disappointed by this one. It was still a great read, just not as great as A Study in Scarlet.
A Street Cat named Bob by James Bowen
I did a full review of this marvellous memoir, which you can check out here. I haven’t read a lot of biographies, but I suspect this will be a favourite for a long time. It’s about a recovering drug addict who finds a lovely street cat, and together they turn their lives around and form an amazing friendship.
The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J. K. Rowling
I can’t find an acceptably sized picture of this book and it’s driving me crazy, so I’m just gonna stop. I LOVED this. The short stories were all very creative and fun. If you don’t know, this is one of the three companion books J. K Rowling wrote about the Harry Potter world.
I’m about halfway through The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. It’s the second novel in the Kingkiller Chronicles, the first one being The Name of the Wind, and it’s 994 pages long. I’m on page 474 and the text is quite small, so you can see why I haven’t finished anything else. But I am loving this book even more than the first one. I’m most likely going to finish it next week, so I’ll share more of my thoughts in my wrap-up at the end of the month (and possibly in a full review).
(I just discovered how to change the size of the font and that you can underline text and do all manner of interesting things with it. Ha!)
So, that was my week. I started out this year with quite a reading slump, so my progress this month has made me really happy. What have you guys been reading? Let me know!
‘Till next time and happy reading!
