Here is what I am reading now, then and next!
I kept seeing ads for Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff, so was quite pleasantly surprised when I found it in my local library! I’m now about 80 pages in, and although it’s taken me a while to get into as it has quite distinctive style, I am starting to click with it! Oh, and it was Barack Obama’s book of the year last year apparently… Here is the blurb…
Every story has two sides.
Every relationship has two perspectives.
And sometimes, it turns out, the key to a great marriage is not its truths but its secrets.
At age twenty-two, Lotto and Mathilde are tall, glamorous, madly in love and destined for greatness. A decade later, their marriage is still the envy of their friends, but behind closed doors things are even more complicated and remarkable than they have seemed.
This weekend I devoured The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing by Mira Jacob which I totally and utterly fell in love with. My review will be appearing shortly!
I also made a stab at Between the Assassinations by Aravind Adiga. I had loved Adiga’s other books but the short story format of this one didn’t really work for me and I have to admit I gave up eventually.
I am sure a lot of other book bloggers will relate to the feeling that they’re drowning in books and have no idea what to read next! I seem to have been on a mission this summer to trawl charity shops for interesting second-hand books, the result being that my shelves are buckling more than ever.
A few recent additions include Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberley McCreight and The Blind Man’s Garden by Nadeem Aslam. I’d be interested to hear if anyone has read either of these?
