Book Reviews

‘The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.’ Alan Bennett

“Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.” ― Franz Kafka

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

This is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey

I haven't had a very good reading week this past week, I read and finished one book and seemed to struggle with concentrating, maybe it's the transition to shorter days. Not sure why! This happens every so often. The main thing is, I am enjoying the book I am reading now, and looking forward to what's coming up next. 

What I've read in the last week...

Chosen by Lesley Glaister

What I am reading at the moment...

Sektion 20 by Paul Dowswell

and also reading (ongoing)
The German Boy by Tricia Wastvedt
The Picture Book by Jo Baker

What I hope to read next...

So Much Pretty by Cara Hoffman
The Lake of Dreams by Kim Edwards

Hope everyone has a great week reading!


  1. The Chosen cover is kind of spooky....
