I have managed to get a bit of reading done the last few weeks, its funny but I'm finding it harder and harder to find time to read. I would have hated my older self for saying that when I was a kid. I was sure that I would never turn into that person who 'Didn't have enough time' for reading.
But here I am. . . .23 years old and struggling to buy out the time for the pile of books waiting by the side of my bed. However as I said this last month has been quite productive:
First up is Miss Smilla's guide to snow which I really enjoyed. It was interestingly written, with thought provoking characters, especially the heroine. Essentially its a murder mystery, but I never actually felt like that was what I was reading, as it had quite a lot of dimensions. Definitely a read I would recommend.
So currently I am half way through Pure, a story set in Paris, pre-revolution, and is the story of a young engineer who is given the job of removing a graveyard from the centre of Paris which is polluting the surrounding area. So far I am enjoying the story, its full of interesting characters and I want to know what happens in the end, if the hero will overcome the problems and finally finish a job he dislikes.
And finally the next on my reading list is a classic I have never heard of. Apparently the story of two reclusive sisters who live together, its a 'chiller' so I may have to read behind my pillow:)
What are you reading at the moment?
Did you read much over the summer?
I am off now to have a Hunger Games/Cheese on toast party:) Pretty good combo don't you think?!
