Here is what I am reading now, then and next!
I’m around 80 pages in to The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald. It’s about a girl in her late 20s who travels from Sweden to a small town in Ohio to meet up with an elderly penpal with whom she shared a love of books. However, when she arrives, all is not as she had hoped!
I’m really enjoying this so far – it reminds me of Anne Tyler in some ways – but I have a bad feeling it’s going to turn into a full-blown romance which I could do without! But in the main I really like it and I’m looking forward to reading more of it soon.
Earlier this week I read The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker. The premise of the novel is that the rotation of the earth is gradually slowing, throwing the world into disarray, and we follow our narrator Julia and she and her family cope with the crisis. It isn’t exactly an action-packed novel – in fact not much happens at all – and the characters aren’t always the most exciting either, yet I did enjoy reading the book. I’ll get a review up soon.
