What else am I up to? Working on my second novel, and deciding what to read next. There are so many books that I’ve won, been given as a gift, or been asked to review. So where to begin. My eldest daughter gave me a huge, humungous, book for my birthday. I think she’s trying to blind me, and I’m already half way there. Can you guess which book she chose? Yes, it’s The Bone Clocks from David Mitchell, which she kindly selected for me from my TBR list on Goodreads. Lovely lass.… So that has to be no. 1 on my list of priority. I still want to finish The Old Kingdom trilogy from Garth Nix, Abhorsen, is waiting for me patiently. Well, Disreputable dog is barking a bit but that’s dogs for you! Mogget’s purring demurely trying to pretend she doesn’t really give a damn but I reckon it’s all an act.
Then, there are my recent wins: The Sharp Hook of Love, by Sherry Jones and Romancing my Love by Melissa Foster. Quite excited about engaging in a bit of romance before Christmas. If I get my skates on who knows what may happen! Also I have a NetGalley to review. Jasper and the Magpie by Dan Mayfield. This is a special interest book which caught my eye. According to the NetGalley blurb, “The story will resonate particularly with children on the autism spectrum and their friends and family. For ages 6 and upwards.”
To cap it all Bette Crosby my new friend on Goodreads has asked me to review her USA Today Bestseller, 5 time literary award winner, Spare Change! Well, that will keep me out of mischief! So much to do, so little time.
So I like to read widely, and often! I believe reading and writing should always go hand in hand, the perfect pairing.
What are you reading or hoping to read, or writing? Do let me know. I’d love to hear all about it.
