It’s March and it’s literally freezing. I have a week’s holiday to look forward to this month and cross all your fingers that we’ll also exchange on our house.
Phone* – I’m about two-thirds of the way through this and its proving, I’ve never read anything by Will Self before so I wasn’t expecting 620 pages of continuous text; no paragraphs, no chapters – nothing. After ten minutes in I was fairly adamant I wouldn’t be able to read it but I’m glad I’ve stuck with it, one of the benefits of the continuous-ness of it is that when I actually have time to read without distraction or the need of a ‘I’ll go until the end of the chapter’ stopping point, I quite enjoy it.
Crooked Kingdom – I planned to read this in February but only got to it in the last four day,; but this wraps up duology I started at the end of last year and I’ll just be left to hope there’ll be more Grisha book soon.
Testosterone Rex: Unmaking the myths of our gendered minds – This is the Banging Book Club podcast read for March, I haven’t listened to the podcast in a while but this I bought this a couple of months ago so thought it would be nice to read it in the same month that its getting reviewed.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completly Fine – This won the Costa Book Award recently and my local Waterstones looks like this book has thrown up on it; the cashier also recommended it to me and the two people in the queue ahead of me, though I’d already bought it (quite a bit cheaper) elsewhere when this happened.
A Gathering of Shadows – Part of my aim to get around to finishing some book series I’ve abandoned; I read the first in this series towards the end of 2016 and really enjoyed it.
Sapiens: A brief history of humankind – I earmarked this for my holiday a while ago, its a chunky read so I want to be able to dedicate some proper time to reading it because I’ve heard good things.
