Booking Through Thursday is again about ‘Recents’ this week. We have had ‘funny’, ‘serious’, ‘worst’ and now ‘best’. This week is genuinely going to be a quick blog post as my most recent best is easy.
Without a doubt the best read I have read of late, and in fact for a little while as got to be Brooklyn by Colm Toibin. It’s just wonderful and in fact I wrote about it yesterday and one of the things I said was that “this is just the book I have been craving to read, and haven’t quite been able to find for quite a while something I would rush to read the next bit of and get lost in all over again“. I would recommend absolutely everyone to read this and am now crossing everything that it makes it onto the Man Booker short list and possibly even go on to winning.
I actually enjoyed it so much I am wondering about adding it onto my ‘All Time Favourite Forty’ I don’t like to do that too rashly though so I may leave the book to linger with me for a while.
So what about you? Whats your most recent ‘best read’?
