The slump continues. I still haven’t finished anything though I did do a bit of reading this week, though not as much as I would have liked because there was a dinner, and then a champagne and cocktail evening, and lots of work and dentists and at the end of each day I just collapsed all of a heap and couldn’t concentrate on anything.
I haven’t even made up the Christmas list I mentioned last week, though I have ben mulling over what it will include.
I have, however, been receiving pre-ordered books this week, much to my excitement and this bodes well for getting my reading mojo back. I’m not abandoning the book that I have been reading for 3 weeks because I do actually want to know who the murderer is and why. But on to the new stuff.
These are both collections of short stories by two of my favourite authors.
- The Grown-Up by Gillian Flynn
- The Gameshouse Trilogy by Claire North (she’s brilliant, I met her at a signing, so lovely and enthusiastic)
These four are all novellas so I should have no excuse for racing through them.
I was also lent a book by my friend The Moff – The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, and once again I will be the last person in the known galaxy to read this, so don’t tell me what happens!
