Book Journey. It is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.
April was an average reading month for me. I read the first book in a new-to-me mystery series by Australian writer Lenny Bartulin, A Deadly Business. I also finished a series for once (it only consists of two books, but still), the Scottish Ferry Tale series by Nancy Volkers. I adored the first book and Scotland By Starlight was just as amazing. I've been meaning to write a review of it for a while now, but I just don't know how to put my feelings into words - it was that special.
Some of you might have heard me gushing about The Twisted Tale of Stormy Gale by Christine Bell more than once on the blog. The much-awaited sequel, The Bewitching Tale of Stormy Gale, will be out 28 May and I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of it through NetGalley. After a quick re-read of Twisted Tale to refresh my memory I started the sequel, and I'm pleased to say it was an exciting, fun read. Review coming up closer to the release date!
I finished Bewitching Tale late last night and since I have to work today I haven't had a chance to start anything new yet. My plan is to start Les Miserables and read a few chapters a day, while alternating with a lighter book. Hopefully that way I'll be able to finish it. My library only had the abridged version, but it's daunting enough anyway. It's been ten years since I first read it (I was actually the last person to check it out of the library - not the most popular book apparently!) and I really want to read it again now. Not sure what that "lighter read" will be yet - any suggestions?
