This Week I Have Mostly Been Reading

Superb.

Three nights it took me.

Three nights of staying up past my bedtime because I just couldn’t put this book down.

Well-crafted, addictive, spine-tingling.

And it’s set in Hay, the spiritual home of Librarians and Bibliophiles.

Books and ghosts and weirdness. Oh my.

Buy it, read it. You can thank me later. 🙂

Next Week I shall be Reading

I’ve only read a few of John Irving’s previous works (I remember sobbing my way through the final chapter of Owen Meany) so I’m not sure what to expect from this one. It seems to have had mixed reviews – ranging from “rich and absorbing” and “daring” to “trite and contrived”. Hmmm. Could be a challenge?
