Work and life have been busy and complicated lately and I have not been able to squeeze in as much reading as I would have liked to have. I have some great books on my shelf – I thought I would share with you some of the books I will be reading and reviewing in the next few weeks ( in no particular order):
The Darkling – I am currently reading – this is a scary read in a Rebecca (Daphne du Maurier) kind of way – lots of brooding atmosphere and hints of horror to come.
A change of pace with the Nilsson – the biography of singer/songwriter/composer Harry Nilsson (deceased) – of whom I am a big fan.
More crime fiction.
An Australian author – a contemporary story of travel, work and modern dreams.
And a historical mystery.
There is a little bit of everything here ( plus a few more I haven’t even read the covers of yet) . I am longing for time to sit down and get stuck into these. The books are calling to me…..READ, READ. 🙂
I’ve got the Sandrolini one on my TBR pile too – looks like it’ll be a good excuse to listen to lots of Ol’ Blue Eyes…
It will be interesting to see what you think of the book. I enjoy your reviews.
Thank you! And ditto! It’s next but one on my NetGalley pile, but I’ve got a couple of books on pre-order due to arrive later this week so it might be two or three weeks before I get to it.
Are you taking part in World Book Night?http://www.worldbooknight.org/books/2013
Seems Australia isnt part of the giveaway.what a pity.
No, every year I mean to get involved and then forget till it’s too late. There’s a few decent books there though, and I’m glad to see Treasure Island on the list. I re-read it fairly recently and had forgotten what a rollicking good story it is.
Yes it is an interesting list….are you too late to participate?
I think you register in advance and then get given a quantity of books which you then take round pubs, workplaces, shops etc and force on innocent bystanders! One of the people I know through Vine has done it a couple of times.
aha…… people can force books on me any day 🙂
