We’re being treated to a four day weekend here in the UK, and I have lots of reading to get done…
Conversations With Friends by Sally Rooney
This was a reread as I wanted to refresh my memory before watching the TV Show. I’m really not sure how I feel Sally Rooney, I just find her characters so self destructive and I find it quite hard to read. I will say I think the casting was absolutely perfect. I could picture every single one of those actors as their roles. So I am excited to watch that.
Napoleon The Great by Andrew Roberts
I’ve wanted to read this for a while now. It’s one of the most highly rated historical non-fiction on goodreads, and this is such a fascinating time period I know nothing about.
At school, we never touched on the French Revolution, and the only things I know about it I actually learnt from stories. From film, tv, and books. But I don’t for sure know any facts, and I think this will be an amazing thing to learn about.
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
My final Jane Austen reread. I’ve been on a mission to read and annotate every Jane Austen book and I’ve only got one left to go! I love this story so much, and I’m having a lot of fun annotating it.
I will definitely still be reading these over the weekend and throughout June, but I do and to pick up a book I just got out from the library…
Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim
I’ve had this on reserve at the library for so long now, and it’s finally here! And perfect timing too, because I am in such a mood for a good fantasy.
Thinking about it though, I have no idea what this is about, and I want to keep it that way. I know it’s based on mythology, and that it has one of the most beautiful covers I have ever seen. I have high hopes for it.
How are you spending the Jubilee weekend? Do you have any fun plans? I’ll be doing lots of baking, watching all the festivities on the TV, and, of course, reading these amazing books!
Thanks For Reading,
