Progress with the bookshelf

With a little bit more free time it’s amazing how much more you can get into a book.

Recently I’ve been making my way through my pile of book purchases to read some new finds and re-read old favourites.

From top left going clockwise we have:

The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton: This is a great read, it’s an easy read in the sense that it flows well and the plot isn’t so complicated you have to go back a page if you don’t pick it up for a couple of days. The story idea is unlike anything I’ve read before so I’d definitely recommend it.

Burial Rites by Hannah Kent: I started this awhile ago but then got busy with other things and long days in the office and evening events meant I neglected my nightly reading. When I picked it up again at the weekend I literally read it straight through from cover to cover in two days. Loved it.

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy: This needs no introductions. I first read it years ago when I borrowed a copy and then bought my own in a Borders sale in London years ago. I read it again recently and was amazed at how much I had missed the first time I read it.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn: I’ve just started this and am a couple of chapters in, so far so good and planning to finish it before I watch the film that’s just out!

What have you all been reading, let me know any recommendations!
