|Out of the pond… by InertiaK|
In this weekly event hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books where we discuss what we’ve been reading this week (and, occasionally, what we haven’t).
I brought one of my mother’s dogs to live with me, so it’s going to be an… interesting week. I hope that she completely kisses up to my roommates so they can look after her whenever I’m not here! *hopes* She’s lovely, so I can’t imagine anyone not loving her…
- The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien – I am almost through the first book in Two Towers… and I think I will put it down there. It is brilliant, of course, but I not too sure I am up to the claustrophobic Sam/Frodo/Gollum business.
- The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller – I really really didn’t think I would like this book. I bought it on a whim and have dreaded picking it up. And guess what? It’s pretty good! Colour me surprised.
- State of Wonder by Ann Patchett – Even though I loathed the main character, Patchett delivered a beautiful and engaging novel. Not my favourite of her books, but still fantastic.
- 13 to Life by Shannon Delany – I reluctantly enjoyed this book despite its major flaws…
