I have way too many books on my currently reading pile…
The Final Revival of Opal and Nev by Dawnie Walton
Another book from the Women’s Prize longlist. I don’t want to dwell on this, I have done a review, but I gave this two stars. It just personally didn’t work for me unfortunately. I also just DNFed This One Sky Day from the longlist.
Emma by Jane Austen
When Spring comes around, I think of Austen.
I had so much fun reading this over Easter. This is actually the first time I’ve read it since watching the 2020 movie and it’s made me realise just how incredible an adaptation that is. It just got the humour and each character so perfectly.
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
I started this a few days ago and it was not what I was expecting, but I am rather enjoying it. I’ve read the first part, I want to hopefully finish it this weekend.
The Bride Test by Helen Hoang
I know this is stupid, but I did start this last week and then put it down because it wasn’t the right weather…
I just like to read romance in the sun and I will actually be able to do that this week, and I’m really looking forward to picking it back up because I was having fun with it.
Virginia Woolf by Hermione Lee
This is an incredible biography, but it is taking me a while and will probably be in my ‘currently reading’ for the next month.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
I’m am painfully and slowly making my way through this. I’m reading it with the Bronte along, but I am not a fan of this book. I much prefer Emily’s poetry.
Still Life by Sarah Winman
I was supposed to read this over Easter, ended up just reading Emma and the Woolf biography. So hopefully I can start this over the weekend.
