I loved that book not just because the audio version was wonderful, but the book itself was amazing. I knew the story from various resources, but each different performance could nowhere nearly match the magic of the original. I suspect I shall re-read this classic more than once in the coming years.
Additionally, I think I found another Desert Island Book.
But Darcy Love aside (and I mean Elizabeth), I am enjoying the summer. I stay up much later than I should and choose books based on my whim.
To date, I have finished the following:
- The Burning Page
- Speaking from Among the Bones
- The Inexplicable Logic of My Life
- Big Little Lies
- Anna Karenina
- The Lies that Bind
- My Best Everything
- Forgotten Bones
- The Handmaid's Tale
- Pride and Prejudice
I am currently reading:
- Star Wars: Jedi Academy
- The Miniaturist
- The Clockwork Scarab
- The Fall of the House of Cabal
- The Reluctant Fundamentalist
Yes, I really am reading five books at a time. I will need to restart (again!) my final Cabal book because it's a little slower-moving than the previous ones. Jedi Academy is way too cute to postpone, and I am on the fence on whether I appreciate steampunk London. I read the first two chapters of #6 as soon as it arrived in the mail, and I can't wait to return.
I do not expect to break any reading records this summer, but I am fine with that. What I want to do is enjoy a few books, and I have been able to do so thus far.
How goes your summer reading?
