Everyone loves a good book, right? and lately I seem to have gathered quite a few all waiting in a queue to be read.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. This is my first Rainbow Rowell novel & I really, really loved it, enough so that I'm going to swiftly add all of Rainbow's other books to my reading list now, too. If you've read Fangirl by Rainbow, you'll know a little bit about Simon Snow and Baz Pitch apparently, as they're characters in a book, sort of similar to Harry Potter, read by the main character. Well, Rainbow decided to write that book and I'm glad she did. It's a little more grown up that Harry Potter, but there's lots of magic, romance and monsters so I was sold straight away. I can't wait to read Fangirl now and see how the story began. I'm also crossing my fingers for a sequel Mrs Rowell...
Foxglove Summer by Ben Aaronovitch. If you've been reading my blog for a long time you may have seen me review of Rivers of London, the first book in this series. Now we're onto book 5, and even though I haven't read the series in a while now I'm excited to dive into the Peter Grant story once again. It's about magic, again, but in case you haven't already guessed, that's my favourite kind of book.
The Bees by Laline Paul. I can't believe I'm going to FINALLY get around to reading this! I've just finished Carry On and this has to be next. I read the first chapter on my iPad when it first came out, but it was about £12 for the digital version and that didn't fly with me, I only buy books on my iPad if they're cheap. I used to check regularly to see if the price had dropped and eventually stopped checking as it never had, well, I checked last week and it was £2! bargain! I quickly hit download and it's been waiting for me ever since. It's an unusual tale, told from the point of view of a bee named Flora, who finds herself in an unusual situation within the Hive. I was hooked with just one chapter so I can't wait to see what happens next.
What have you been reading lately? Do you have any recommendations for me?
