Finding out that someone likes the same book as you? Hello, instant new best friend!
Last week I received a message through my Facebook page with a suggestion for an ‘open post’- a place where people can discuss what they are currently reading, ask for suggestions and share their thoughts on books they have read. I think it is a wonderful idea, as I love to hear about what others are reading!
So far this week I have read the amazing debut novel The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen. We have a proof making its way around the office and everyone who read it before me loved it. It’s adult fantasy but it’s not hard to read – it is clear in its ideas and doesn’t weigh itself down with detail as some fantasy books can do. I really, really enjoyed it – must read!!
I am following it up with book four of the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde. He is a little bit mad but I thoroughly enjoy his books… they are about books after all!!
Now a question for you – since finishing A Discovery of Witches, I have been on the hunt for another series about witches (preferably without vampires…). Can you recommend anything? What are you currently reading?
