Hi everyone! I have been a little bit absent in the last few weeks, but yesterday I finally handed in my thesis (!!!) and now I have some time to actually devote to relaxing... which involves a lot of reading! It might also involve some Nintendo... and eating this cake, which I made yesterday:
|Unpretty (but very tasty!)|
Anyway... moving on from cake, and on to books.
From the library:
Agatha Christie - The Moving Finger
Poison pen letters in a sleepy village - and a late appearance from Miss Marple.
Camilla Läckberg - The Hidden Child
Swedish crime thriller - I read The Ice Princess a few years ago, and am hoping for another good mystery! This will also count towards my Translation Challenge.
Simone Elkeles - How to Ruin a Summer Vacation
Impulse pick up, based on the fact that I have never read a YA novel set in Israel before.
Louise Rennison - Luuurve is a Many Trousered Thing
I read ...And Then It Fell Off In My Hand recently, and this is one of the latest volumes of Georgia's adventures.
Jo Brand - It's Different for Girls
I am a big fan of Jo Brand's comedy, and this is a story about growing up as teenagers in the 1970s, in Hastings.
Terry Pratchett - A Hat Full of Sky
Another Discworld story involving Tiffany Aching, who was the protagonist of The Wee Free Men, which I read last year.
Nicole Hayes - The Whole of My World
Love this cover! Thanks to Random House Australia for my copy.
Mark Goldblatt - Twerp
A kids' novel that I wasn't sure whether or not I would read, but Celine from Nyx Book Reviews did a great review on Goodreads so I'm going to give it a go!
A crossover between the Gallagher Girls and Heist Society worlds.
Free Kindle download:
L. Frank Baum - The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
Katie McGarry - Pushing the Limits - 3/10 (So. Many. Issues.)
I have a review of Life in Outer Space by Melissa Keil coming up this week (preview: GO READ IT), and a weekend of uninterrupted reading to look forward to - have a good one!
