Read, reading, next
Whilst reading one of my lasted books, I realised, that even when I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about it....the topics were real, it wasn't fantasy...it could happen in real life, to me or anyone I know. I wonder, does this happen to you? Do you read a book and find yourself transported to that place, that moment, and think "what would I do" - "how would I react"? Or mulling over the end after you've finished? It's probably one of the biggest compliments to an author who writes novels like this. The power to infiltrate our minds after the book has been put back on the shelf. Perhaps that the motivation they write in the first place....I don't know...but it is the sign of a good read.
So what's been on my reading list.
I've read Me Before You- Jojo Moyes - A love story with tragedy, heartache, gut wrenching "what would I do" scenarios and characters that you love, and some you love to hate.
Reading...The Lucky One - Nicholas Sparks. I picked this one up for $3 at a country community book shop. I knew the movie was coming out soon and thought it would be good to read the book first. Logan is an interesting character and its quite easy to be drawn into this book and see what unfolds on his discovery to find the woman in a photograph he found whilst on his tour of duty in the marines. A photo that he believes kept him alive. After reading many of Sparks' books I'm preempting some twists, turns and romance.
Next - All that I am -Anna Funder. Set in war torn Germany when Hitler reined, this story is about survival, love, betrayal and friendship.
What's on your reading list? Do immerse yourself in a book??
