What I’m Reading this Week… (3)

Well my reading has not progressed much from last week! I’ve been so busy with university I’ve only managed to finish one book (Michael McIntyre’s autobiography). Lets hope that this week is a little more productive!

I have a maths assignment to write so all of this pile is getting perused!

I’m still reading PD James. Its good, but I’m not totally into the characters yet.

This is my favourite book from childhood and I still like to re-read it, so I’m hoping this week if I get into a reading slump it will save me!

What are you reading this week?

What I’m Reading this Week… (2)

I finished Patrick Rothfuss the Name of the Wind! I took a lot of dedicated ignoring of my assignment but I did it… full review coming later in the week.

I’m going for easy reads this week as I am going back to university 😦 As you know I’m a fan of biography and Michael McIntyre is pretty darn funny so I’m hoping the two have met in a joyous union here.

I will be reading this book for the foreseeable future! It just takes so long!

This I picked up for 50p at a charity shop- deal! And we all know how I can’t resist a bit of crime fiction!

What are you reading this week friends?

Booky Things….

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?
