Hello all!! Thanks for stopping by to check up on how my bookish week has been! My reading time has been eaten into a little as have been constructing a new rabbit hutch and run - ably assisted by my mum and dad! - for the bunny who is now doing all he can to steer well clear of it!! That's gratitude for you!!
Been a good reading week though as last weekend was The Big Book Weekender hosted by Simon Savidge of Savidge Reads on BookTube, and it was a great excuse to pick up those big books that I've always put off reading! Over the course of the weekend and this week I've managed to finish 2 of the big books I picked up - over 1,000 pages between them! - and have loved both and loved the experience so hoping I won't be as scared in the future to pick more up! There's another Big Book Weekender at the end of this month so already excited to start choosing new books! I also finished listening to an Audio Book which at 18 hours long could well qualify for the Big Book category! Been fairly quiet on the acquiring book front other than through subscription box books - they don't count though do they?!
ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE by ANTHONY DOERR - 5 STARS
Why did I not pick this book up sooner?! An astonishing read that had me captivated from start to finish!! Loved it!!
The Last Hours by Minette Walters - 4 stars
An absorbing historical book about the Black Death and how it affected those living through it! Really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next book in the series!
The Trees by Ali Shaw - 3 stars
Listened to the audio version of this - enjoyed the beginning but did find my mind wandering towards the end!
A Modern Detective by Edgar Allan Poe
The Withered Arms by Thomas Hardy
Lord Arthur Savile's Crime by Oscar Wilde
Wishing you all a happy reading week ahead!!
