I did it. I finally did it. I donated some of my books to a charity shop. There are just some books which I have to admit to myself that I’m not going to read again and that I really don’t need. So to a charity shop they went!
But I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t let books go without replacing them! But instead of hitting up Waterstones and emptying my bank account I visited my local library. And we all know how much I love the library, and today I came away with a pretty good haul.
I actually saw this book when I was browsing in Waterstones before Christmas. I was so happy just to see it sitting on the shelf calling to me, so home it came! I get the feeling its a blend between magic and crime fiction, a combination I just can’t resist!
This is a totally random pick! Andreas Eschbach is a German author who I had not heard of before, so I am very excited to try something new. I also trying to expand my reading horizons and read more authors in translation so this should be a very good book for me!
Next I got another PD James novel, I do love a bit of crime fiction and I have not been disappointed with PD James novels before so I’m very excited about this.
Although I’m not usually one for paranormal romance (I think my teenage years binge on that type of fiction gave me my full) I picked this up on a bit of a whim. Sometimes all I want is easy reading before bed and hopefully this should fall into this category nicely.
This was another impulse pick up in the YA section because I was drawn to the cover art. I’m already part way through it and enjoying it thus far!
So here we have it. You can tell I finished my teaching placement yesterday, because I suddenly have time to read again!
What have you been enjoying reading recently?
