Reading or lack of…
This past couple of months has been a hard one from a reading perspective I have been a very big reading slump. I hate reading slumps, they’re so frustrating but they do happen to me now and again. I have always found that the right book normally gets me through and I have hunted high and low for THAT book to get me through my slump but it took me longer than normal to find it, so I have been suffering a bit of a drought. So September and the beginning of October was a bit dry on the reading front.
But I have recently started reading The Lesser Bohemians a novel about a drama student with an older lover- I loved the concept of the book when I first heard about it and now I have started reading it, it has the most interesting narrative structure.
Written in the form of prose, The Lesser Bohemians is more like a 300-page poem than a novel but it is beautifully written and the story is really interesting and I can’t wait to read more!
Now I am back in the reading swing of things I have some really interesting books on my TBR pile but I am particularly excited about The Muse and The Essex Serpent which I cannot wait to get too!
Another reason for my lack of reading is my writing.
For those of you who don’t know, I am currently writing the first draft of my first book The Girl Who Fell Out of the Ocean which is available of Wattpad (I’m @paintandbutterflies). I am close to the end now with the last few chapters to go, and while writing my first novel has been a real learning curve I am looking forward to having my whole story (well the first draft) done so I can concentrate on a serious edit.
How has your Autumn reading been going? Got any new and interesting books on your TBR?
See you next time guys,
Happy reading and writing everyone xx
