What am I currently reading?

I am about 35% into A Polar Affair by Lloyd Spencer Davis. It’s a NetGalley ebook about polar exploration and penguins. It’s good, but slow going.

I have just started reading Knife of Dreams by Robert Jordan, which is book 11 in The Wheel of Time series. Amazon is turning the series into a TV show, which should release in 2021. I can’t wait! So far, the casting looks good and Brandon Sanderson is involved, so I am confident I will love it!

Finally, I am listening to Walking Home by Clare Balding on audio. It’s basically a book about walking and it’s wonderfully quaint. I love Clare anyway and I listened to her previous book as well. She has a great voice to listen to. She is wonderful at describing the scenery and how it makes her feel. She goes off on tangeants as well about stuff that has nothing to do with walking and I can’t of enjoy that as well. I am listening now and she is going off on a story about Daphne Du Maurier!I am almost halfway now.

What did I recently finish reading?

Since last Wednesday I finished Eucalyptus (Murray Bail), which was wonderfully odd, and Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan, which was the equivalent of a soap opera, but mighty enjoyable.

 

What do I think I will read next? 

Not sure. Knife of Dreams is a 800-page epic fantasy, so I may pick up something contemporary alongside it. Maybe Tin Man (Sarah Winman) or Home Fire (Kamila Shamsie).

  1. You’ve reminded me I should try to read Crazy Rich Asians some time soon! It sounds like a really fun read.

    Have a wonderful week and happy reading! Here’s my WWW.
