It has been a very long week and I apologise for not posting anything. I have had some trouble putting words on paper. That aside, I have certainly been reading a lot; I have somehow managed to read 15 books this month! While that sounds fantastic, it has been all young adult reading. It also leads to the point of this post! When I noted down the book I finished last night, I discovered that only seven of the last 30 books I have read have been ‘adult’ books! I seem to have fallen back into my very comfortable reading hole. I love YA but I get stuck there very easily. Sometimes it is nice to get out and enjoy what the big kids have to offer!
So… I have decided to do ‘Adult-only August’! There are so many wonderful novels in my TBR pile that have been waiting patiently for months and months to be started. There are so many that I have no idea where to begin. I have narrowed it down to sixteen titles as well as a couple of manuscripts from work.
The longlist looks a little like this:
Wolf Hall – Hilary Mantel
Here Come the Dogs – Omar Musa
The Complete Maus – Art Spiegelman
Landline – Rainbow Rowell
The Historian – Elizabeth Kostova
Steelheart – Brandon Sanderson
The End of Your Life Book Club – Will Schwalbe
The Crash of Hennington – Patrick Ness
The Magicians – Lev Grossman
Magician – Raymond E Feist
Trinity – Leon Uris
To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee
Arabella – Georgette Heyer
In the Garden of Beasts – Erik Larson
Deadly Decisions – Kathy Reichs
Promise – Tony Cavanaugh
It is an exciting pile and I look looking forward to getting into it!
