I’m on a reading roll (non-bread, mind!)! I’ve always had my nose in a book for as long as I can remember, but for the past several years, work has taken over my life. I’ve been working and spending my non-working hours either baking or resting and completely vegging out (by watching TV).
But I’ve been reading a lot the past few months: I’ve finished the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness (A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night and the Book of Life), the Languedoc Series by Kate Mosse (Citadel, Sepulchre and Citadel), Gillian Flynn’s books (Gone Girl, Dark Places, and Sharp Objects), The Cousins War Series by Philippa Gregory (The White Queen, The Red Queen, The Lady of the Rivers, The King Maker’s Daughter, The White Princess, and the King’s Curse), Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, and Bridget Jones: Mad About The Boy by Helen Fielding. Two weeks ago, I finished Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins.
On Friday, I finished another book. Continuing on the amnesia-lit theme (Girl On The Train was mostly because the character experiences a sort of amnesia), I started on Fractured last weekend. The premise was about this girl who has an accident and wakes up from it with a life that’s perfect and far from what she had before she had the accident and what happens after as she tries to figure out why her life is what it is. Before this book, I’d been lamenting my reading speed. But considering that I only read on the train after Alan gets off the train on the way to work, and on the way home, I read only until Alan gets home, my reading speed is relatively back to where it used to be. The only downside is that I’m experiencing a twitching on the left side of my forehead! My eyebrow and top and bottom eyelids are twitching too. I’m constantly afraid that people will think I’m winking at them!
I’ve got a book lined up for my next read. It’s called The Book of You by Claire Kendal. Bring on the daily commute!
But now, I’ve got to make Chinese coconut tarts! See y’all later!
