Sunday Summary: 13 January 2019

ahdieh, renee - the wrath and the dawnbaker, jo - longbournI have had a pretty stellar reading week. I finished two novels: Longbourn (Jo Baker) and The Wrath and the Dawn (Renée Ahdieh), but I also finished an anthology, Winter, and a poetry collection, Wild Flowers (Michelle S Smith).

 

That is pretty good going for me.

smith, michelle s - wild flowersReading Wild Flowers did make me want to read more poetry, because when I do I actually really enjoy the experience. Last year I hardly read any poetry and I really need to change that!

Arden, Katherine - Winternight Trilogy 3 The Winter of the WitchI read the first chapter of the concluding book of the Winternight trilogy by Katherine Arden yesterday, as my eyes were drooping, wanting to go to sleep. I really hope The Winter of the Witch will be all I want it to be to complete a series I have loved the first two books of in style. I have only heard good things, but that does not always mean much.

ivey, eowyn - the snow childIn the week ahead I hope to read The Winter of the Witch and The Snow Child (Eowyn Ivey).

sue, eugene - the godolphin arabianI might read something else inbetween, so they don’t blur into one. I have a little book called The Godolphin Arabian, which is based on the story of one of the founding sires of the modern thoroughbred racehorse. It has been asking for me to read it and it’s only small. It was written in 1846 by Eugene Sue (in French), but this is a recent translation. It is only short and should be a quick fun read.

I hope to read at least 100 pages of The Winter of the Witch today, but I am not pushing myself today – I read plenty this week!

Happy Sunday!
