A Blog Breather…

Apologies for some blogging silence over the past few days. Have taken some time out as been a bit out sorts reading wise and in general but will be back with Jane Harris this afternoon for a bookish chat for the latest instalment of Reading With Authors.

So what have you all been upto? What’s news? Are you all well? Most importantly what have you been reading?

  1. Just finished The Siren’s Sting by Miranda Darling (Australian author) – really grew on me and dare I say it, Dannii Minogue’s autobiography (one of my heroines as a child).
    Hope you are feeling better and your reading mojo returns 🙂

  2. Louise

    I’ve been doing lots of reading, The Devotion of Suspect X, Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children (loved this) and I’ve just finished Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter 🙂

  3. I have been attending some conferences; I’m off to a third one on Monday. I’ve just finished a short novel by Philippe Bueaussant. You can read my thoughts (positive!) about it here:


  4. I feel like I haven’t commented on your blog in ages so I just wanted to stop by and say hi! I’m reading Ann Radcliffe’s The Mysteries of Udolpho right now and it might just be the slowest Gothic fiction novel I’ve ever read. But it’s still strangely compelling and I’m just going to keep slogging through it!

    • Hey Kristen, do not apologise for not popping by, I have been dreadful at popping to blogs and the like lately so honestly worry not. I am sorry that I have not commented sooner. Udolpho has been recommended to me sooooo many times, its just too big and slow building. Though I think Northanger Abbey which I am going to start soon will make me want to read it – I have tried and failed twice.

  5. Hunger by Knut Hamsun. Been falling in and out of love, but never failing to be stuck in wonderment. Absolutely fascinating.

    Other than that, I am finding myself working very hard at my graduate schooling program. Lots of nonfiction on the go at the moment.
