These past couple of months have been so hectic both professionally and personally and I have been reading Wolf Hall
for what feels like so long now (two weeks is quite a long time for a book nut like myself) that I feel like I’ve lost my way a little with what I am reading/going to read, etc. This fuzzy state of mind has definitely not been helped by some terrifyingly huge book hauls at Sharston Books
and copious amounts of gin and tonic this weekend *snigger*
Nothing like a decent meme to clear my mind! (Courtesy of Simon at Stuck in a Book)
1) The book I’m currently reading
Cor blimey, I knew this book was going to be good, but never quite this good. I studied the Tudors twice in school and it really is such a sexy, exciting period of English history and the perfect setting for this high-drama, high-action, sumptuous book.
2) The last book I finished
Between the dullness of Mary B and building myself up to Wolf Hall, I picked up a few short little treats, The Tiny Wife being just one. This completely fantabulous, bizarre modern fable is brilliantly fun and so so groovy.
3) The next book I want to read
I love love love Carlos Ruiz Zafón and am going to see him speak at Waterstones Deansgate in June. (Eek!) I picked this up in India when we had to use up our rupees and am very excited about it. A bit of mystery and heat I’m hoping!
4.) The last book I bought
5) The last book I was given
Mummy and Daddy Relish uncovered this gorgeous copy (completely untouched) of this Thomas Hardy classic in a charity bookshop! Now, if that isn’t an advert for secondhand/charity book shopping I don’t know what is…
