I don’t know what it is but I feel like I’ve been reading the same two books for a while now and I’m not making much progress. Granted I haven’t had as much reading time this week as I’ve gone out a couple of nights to meet up with friends but I guess I just want to start something new too. Do you ever feel that way?
I’m still reading Astrid & Veronika by Linda Olsson and I’m really enjoying this book. The pacing is slow which works well to savor some of the descriptions. And, overall I really like the theme of friendship in this novel. There’s a lot more and I promise to have a review.
My other book is Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin. I’m only on page 70 or so and already I’m trying to figure out how this medieval coroner from Salerno will find out who murdered some children in England.
So this weekend I hope to make some progress in both books and I’m sure I’ll throw in another to my reading pile. But, you know what I’m super excited about on Friday? Ian Rankin is going to be at one of the local Borders to discuss his latest book, The Naming of the Dead. I’m so there! I promise to let you know how that goes.
