What am I currently reading?

Well, my main read is Godsgrave, the second book in the Nevernight Chronicle by Jay Kristoff. I expected to love it, but I am a third of the way in and though I am not quite struggling, I am really not enjoying it as much as I had hoped. I mean, I LOVED the first book. This one is slowly growing on me, but I do not feel invested in the story yet.

I am also slowly working my way through Summer: an Anthology for the Changing Seasons, which is exactly what it says on the tin. I read the Winter versions of this at the backend of last year and really enjoyed it, but this one does not feel as vibrant for some reason. The snippets of nature writing  and poetry are nice, but maybe summer is just not that interesting as seasons go…

And finally, because I did not feel like reading Godsgrave when I went to bed a couple of nights ago, I started Seducing Charlotte by Diana Quincy. This is a historical romance and just the sort of light read I need every now and then. I have read one of Diana Quincy’s regency mysteries, which she published under D M Quincy, which I enjoyed a lot. Of course this one is more about the sexy times, so it’s quite different, but I know I like her writing and I have been reading a bit more romance lately, so I was keen to try one of hers. I am veering off TBR with that one, but I realised one book should have been on next month’s TBR anyway, so it’s fine! (Not that it’s not always fine to not follow my TBR, but still…). On a side note, I cannot tell you how much I dislike most romance book covers.

What did I recently finish reading?

My reading has slowed down a bit and since last week I have only finished This Adventure Ends, by Emma Mills (which was on my TBR!), and Treading the Uneven Road by L M Brown (which wasn’t). The latter is now one of my favourite short story collections. It was excellent.

What do I think I will read next?

Well, I am reading three books at the moment, and I am going rather slower than I have been, so I may well be reading the same three books next week 😂. If that is not the case, I am really wanting to read either Eucalyptus by Murray Bail or The Summer of Impossible Things by Rowan Coleman.

    1. I don’t usually read that many at once. It helps that Summer is an anthology, so I only read about 10 pages of that one a day. If I read more than one book, I want them all to be very different!

    1. Three is a lot for me. I usually have two on the go, one fiction, one non-fiction. Summer is an anthology, so I only read about 10 pages a day. When I do read more books, they all need to be very different! My main read is Godsgrave, so I try and read a chunk of that a day. The others I only read a little of.

      1. Me too, if I have two on the go I can manage both as fiction as long as they are in different formats – so one in paper and one on audio works really well

  1. Oooh, Godsgrave. ❤ Can't wait to read that series myself. Sorry to hear that you're not loving it as much as the first one, though. The Summer of Impossible Things sounds really good, and that cover is so dang pretty! Happy reading.

    Here's my WWW post.

  2. I don’t read that many short stories, but I love the sound of Treading the Uneven Road! Good luck with your reading, mine is a bit slow-going as well at the moment.
