Here is what I am reading now, then and next!

Now…

downloadI’m almost done with Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard – a young adult novel that I am absolutely loving! It is about two girls who have been best friends forever – until things are turned upside-down when mysterious new girl Suzanne moves into town. I will definitely finish this today – in fact I intend to start reading it the first chance I get! I really like the way it is written. The dialogue is convincing and the characters are really interesting. It is also a bit darker than I thought it would be at first.

A few days ago, I read The End of Everything by Megan Abbott, which turned out to be a pretty disturbing novel narrated by a 13-year-old girl who is at once both scarily grown-up yet very naive. I liked it overall – I think!

I also finished What Milo Saw by Virginia MacGregor which I had looked forward to reading so much, but was actually quite disappointed with in the end. It didn’t really live up to my expectations.

I’ve still not started either of my July book club reads, so I really need to crack on with those. I am looking forward to one of them – The Museum of You by Carys Bray – and not really at all excited about the other – Headlong by Michael Frayn. Maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised and enjoy both!

What are you reading now, then and next?

  1. I read Skios by Michael Frayn for a book club read and it was very farcical and slapstick. It wasn’t my cup of tea, I don’t know if all his writing is like that but I can totally understand your trepidation. I guess this is why we go to book clubs, to test ourselves and push our comfort zones. My book club read this month certainly did. Good luck! 😉
