This week has been a good reading week! Lots of books read this week and they were all good. Lots of long sessions of reading too – I’ve been missing those and I’m glad to get back to them.
First I read Wickham Hall by Cathy Bramley. I’ve now read all four of her books and enjoyed them. It was definitely worth waiting for this to come out as a whole novel rather than reading it in 4 monthly installments. I don’t seem to enjoy books as much like that but it is very hard to resist them when you know it’s an author you enjoy so much. It was fun and enjoyable and I read huge chunks of it staying up much too late to do so.
That’s a bit of a fail at my reading my own damn books challenge though because I bought it this year. Still at least it’s not languishing on the TBR but I bought it and read it within a week. If I could do that sort of thing more often I’d be pleased. I also used one of my audible credits to get Spectacles by Sue Perkins. But I did go to Waterstones yesterday after lunch with a friend and came out without buying anything.
Back to the books. I’ve finished Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. I enjoyed it as much as the first time and I really enjoyed listening to them all over a short period of time. Good stuff but I’m a little sad to be done with them and almost not sure what to do with myself now. Nothing to listen to while doing other stuff but not quite ready to start a new audiobook.
Finally I read The Hurricane Sisters by Dorothea Benton Frank. And Oh My Goodness it was good. I started that yesterday and finished it today it was that good. It’s been on my TBR for over a year and I’m really wishing I’d got to it sooner. Of the three books I read this week this is the one I’d recommend the most. And now I’m off to Amazon to see if she’s written anymore. I want them if she has.
I’m linking up with It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? with this post.
