We are heading into the second week of my daughters’s school holidays and my daughter and I are heading down to visit my parents down by the seaside. Its odd to think haven’t seen them since last summer as we didn’t see them over Christmas.
Reading wise, I seem to be in bit of a reading slump after finishing the dense tome that is Midnight children and the mammoth audiobook version of the Stand, so I am reading an series of old-favourite fantasy books that are due for a reread.
by Salman Rushdie
Wow. I am not quite sure what to make of that, but what a ride. Very dense with what is most likely a very unreliable narrator it tells of India’s independence through to the emergency and beyond.
I think this is a book that will stay with me for sometime.
Daggerspell (Deverry, #1)
by Katharine Kerr
Pure comfort reading. I have read this series about every decade or so since it was first published in the Uk in the 90’s and it is safe to say it’s one of my favourites. After finishing a couple of huge dense books I was headed into a bit of a reading slump so this is a perfect antidote.
by Stephen King
Well that was a long listen but well worth the 48 hours (well less as I never listen to audio books at normal speed). It was kinda ironic to read this book about a global pandemic in the middle of a global pandemic and it did make me think a lot about about how to survive an event like that.
I will be linking this to the Sunday Post over at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer , Stacking the Shelves over at Tynga’s Reviews, The Sunday Salon at Readerbuzz and then It’s Monday What are you Reading at The Book Date.
