Book Reviews

‘The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.’ Alan Bennett

“Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.” ― Franz Kafka

It's Monday! What are you reading?




It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. 

Last week I read a comic book - Saga, Volume 1, by Brian K. Vaughen and Fiona Staples, and a graphic novel - Eustace by S.J. Harris, both borrowed from the library. 

I'm currently reading How Green Was My Valley by Robert Llewellyn, and I'm also reading Disgrace by Jussi Adler-Olsen.


On the blog, I posted a review of Inflicted by Ria Frances.

I've just posted my February 2015 reading round-up.

Also I've posted my starting post for the Take Control of your TBR Pile challenge March 2015.

What are you reading? 

I hope you have a great week of wonderful reading, and thank you for visiting.

    1. Yes I kept seeing it and that's why I thought I'd try it, and the first part was good enough that I'd like to carry on with them, I'll try getting more from the library.

  14. I'd love to hear more about How Green Was My Valley. I hope you get a chance to write about it.

    Best of luck with your TBR challenge! I've joined Eva Stalker's #TBR20 project with the aim of reading twenty books before buying any others. I'm currently reading book 14 (if I just count the books I've reviewed or plan to).
