So…Let’s see what’s happening in my reading life…

Hughes, Glyn - RothWhat am I currently reading?

I have just picked up Roth by Glyn Hughes. It is a book I have had for twenty years and I have not read it yet, so it’s about time! It has no reviews on Goodreads at all, so I am not sure what to expect. I am only on page 5, and I feel like it could be decent.

 

\What did I recently finish reading?

I finished three books yesterday, though one of them was a short graphic novel and the other was a novella of only 106 pages.

The graphic novel (or graphic poem!) was Storm by Tim Minchin. I have always loved the beat poem and the animation this novel was adapted from, so it was pretty much a shoe-in that I would love it. I gave it six stars.

I also read Croakers, or more precisely Book One: Tomorrow, by Cindy L Grier. I requested this on NetGalley, because I love animal fiction. I did not realise it was only a short story (or a novella), but I did like it. I gave it four stars.

And finally I finished Between the Shade and the Shadow, by Coleman Alexander. This one was an author request and I am so happy I decided to read this one. I gave it five stars, as it took me about a third to get into it, but this world is so interesting and different! Once I was got sucked in, I did not want to leave! I have ordered a physical copy, as I like to support indie authors. I can’t wait for more books to come out set in this world.

What do I plan on reading next?

Tolkien, JRR - The Lord of the Rings 1 The Fellowship of the RingIn August I have a BookTubeAThon-inspired TBR and one of the challenges is to read a book and watch the movie adaptation. I finally decided I will be reading The Fellowship of the Ring (J R R Tolkien), which ties in nicely with a buddy read as well. It is a re-read, but it has been over ten years since I last read it, so I am actually really looking forward to reading it again.
