I hope your weeks are going wonderfully! I’ve had quite a few of my library reservations come in, so I am now fully immersed in the Women’s Prize longlist, and I’m liking what I’m seeing so far…
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
I loved my reread of this a lot, and I really want to go straight to the second book. But I have too many other books I need to prioritise right now. So it’s an agonizing wait until I have read the arcs/library books I need to get to first…
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
This is the April read for the Brontëalong and this is the one I am most looking forward to, because whilst I have read it before, it was when I was a teenager and I definitely didn’t appreciate anything about it. I went into it hoping for something like Jane Austen, but that’s certainly not what this book it!
I’m only five chapters in, but I’m already loving it and we haven’t even got to the real story yet. My memory of this book is more hazy than I thought as I’d completely forgotten the existance of Mr Lockwood. It feels like a fresh start.
The Island of Missing Trees by Elif Shafak
Did I say I was going to be reading this next in last weeks WWW? Maybe…
Honestly, I just felt like reading this book in the sun! But it’s been gloomy and cold, and island just reminds me of warmth, and I want to feel the warmth of the sun on my face when I’m reading a book like this.
I have started it though, and this weekends weather is supposed to be perking up a bit. So hopefully I can finish it then!
This One Sky Day by Leone Ross
I have actually given the first few pages of this a read already, and they have blown me away! I didn’t have the highest hopes for this book honestly because this is one of the Women’s Prize longlisted books I was less eager to read.
It just so happened that my library reservation came in before the other longlisted books, so I thought I’d give it a try anyway, and thank goodness I did!
Hopefully the rest of the book is just as good as those first pages are.
