So, this week…
/ WHAT ARE YOU READING NOW?
I’ve heard a lot of good things about Adults by Emma Jane Unsworth, so I was very pleased when it recently popped onto my NetGalley shelf. Recently, I’ve found myself reading a lot of contemporary books that are written from the POV of a woman facing a dilemma or trying to work through life / relationship issues (such as: What Happens Now? / In at the Deep End / My Year of Rest and Relaxation) and I’m really enjoying them. Adults so far is very funny and – in places – Jenny’s (the narrator) over analytical thought process is scarily accurate.
/ WHAT HAVE YOU RECENTLY READ?
So Lucky is my second read by Dawn O’Porter and I really like her knowing tone and contemporary subject matter. To quote from my own review: ‘In a nutshell, So Lucky is about that familiar phrase: ‘Everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about . . .‘ People might seem like they have it all and are ‘so lucky’ but the reality is quite different.’ We meet – and get to know – three women, all who are not as they seem on the surface for various intriguing reasons. It’s out on 31st October and well worth a read!
/ WHAT WILL YOU READ NEXT?
I’m going to be a cliche and read a Halloween themed book at the end of October. But not just ANY old Halloween book, an Agatha Christie one. Hallowe’en Party has the double bonus of not only being a Poirot novel (my favourites) but it features Ariadne Oliver, Christie’s caricature of herself who is dry, witty and fabulous.
I’d love to know what you’re reading this week – are you going down the spooky / Halloween read road too? Let me know below!
