I’m currently reading 

The Girls by Emma Cline

The Girls was my most anticipated read of 2016 and luckily I was approved to read it early thanks to NetGalley. I am only a couple of chapters in but this beautifully written story of murder and cults already has me hooked.

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

andrej bolkonskij

I have been gripped by the BBC adaptation of War and Peace and of all the reviews I have read book readers seem a bit 50/50 about it claiming it’s ‘sexed up’ for the tele (which it probably is, I mean hello James Nortan!). But I enjoyed the adaptation so much I have now started Tolstoy’s 1000+ page beasty. And I have to admit it is really great to be re-entering this world again.

What did you recently finish?

My Uprooted Review

What do you think you will read next?

I have been in a bit of a reading slump recently but I have a few things on my TBR that I’m leaning towards. Likely candidates are –

Flawed dragonfly in amber

Cecelia Ahern is one of my favourite writers and I’m always really sucked into her stories (P.S I Love You, Love Rosie and A Place Called Here) all great examples of her work. With season 2 of Outlander hitting our screens in April I need to get on this asap, and who doesn’t need a bit of Jamie Fraser in there lives hmm?

Right, well that has been my WWW Wednesday see you next time.

Happy reading everyone!

Currently Reading

Gloria Stienem

I am currently reading two books at the moment, this is unusual for me I’m normally a one book at a time type of girl but I am currently taking part in Our Shared Shelf which if you don’t know is Emma Watson’s feminist book club. The book this month is My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem, I will be reviewing this at the end of January.

gone girl

I have also just started Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn I have had a copy of this book for a while but tend to stay away from Crime/Mystery books until I am really in the mood. I have managed to go unspoiled so far so needless to say no spoilers please!

Recently Finished

uprooted

I recently finished reading Uprooted by Noami Novik I really enjoyed this Russian fairy-tale esk stand alone, but I don’t want to go into this to deeply as I have a full review coming SOON!

Reading Next
