Read, reading, next....
Ok....So the fifty pages a day Challenge is still going. I'm pleased. I'm making so much more of an effort to dedicate to books on my list...and I'm proud to say I've knocked off thirteen books this year already!
So what's been read, what am I reading and what's next I hear you ask...
Well I finished Room, by Emma O'Donahue which was such a provocative and heart wrenching book all in one. It was one of those books that was so well written and so well described that I quivered at times at the 'realness' of it all. It was a bit 'can't put down' and I was at the end before I knew it.
Death at Pemberly by P.D James. Ok I picked up this book as it was in the top 10 when I bought it....I've heard about this author (who is apparently very adept in the crime writing department) but my interest was in the detail. Yes, it's set in the era with our lovely characters of Jane Austen's P & P. I'm half way through, and yes, it's intriguing....not enough Darcy and Lizzy yet, but a fun read so far....a great "who dunnit?"
Next....Freudian Slip by Marion Von Alderstein - this book is set in the sixties in Sydney and about the success (and ways of getting it!) of women in the publication and advertising business. I am intrgiued about this one!
Do you give yourself a list of books to read?
I tried recording the books I've read and a little synopsis of them, but I found I got a bit lazy (hence i now blog about them!)....do you keep a book diary?
