A Little Reading Update


It’s been a while. I think it’s been a month since I last published a post? I’ve thought of loads of ideas, but this blog has had to be sidelined a little due to life getting in the way. Because of all this, I haven’t even had much time for Twitter (I know, the horror!), so I thought today I’d give you a little update on what I’ve been reading, because I've read some really good books recently.

Since we last spoke, I’ve read some really good books - Illuminae being one of them. It seems everyone has been raving about this book forever, so I have wanted to read it for ages, but I finally read it at the end of October. And I loved it! It was so addicting and fast paced - I just wish I had read it sooner! I'm really hoping Santa might bring me Gemina for Christmas, because I am so excited to continue with the series.

...And A Happy New Year?
You might remember me adoring the Spinster trilogy a few months ago, so I was desperate to read this one as soon as I got it. I’m really glad we got a novella to round of the series, because I was not ready to let these characters go! I’m still upset that the series is over, but I’m glad we got to see what happened to them. I will miss this series so much!

A Little Life
If you have spoken to me at all in the past few weeks, you will know just how much this book means to me. It’s the biggest book sitting on my shelf, but I managed to read it in under a week (a school week too!). This is the best book I’ve ever read, because I saw so much of myself in the characters. It truly is my favourite book ever because it touched me so deeply; I don't think I have ever cried so much in a book! I am so glad I read it, but now I am desperate to reread it. I want to write a full review very soon (if I can gather my thoughts together!), so hopefully I will!

I’m really hoping life will clear up soon so I’ll be able to get back to blogging properly soon. Tell me:
What have you been reading lately? What’s been going on in your life? I would love to know!

  1. Happy to see you back Denise! Hopefully you can get back into the swing of things soon! I've heard great things about the Spinsters trilogy, I should really pick it up!

  2. Hi Denise, it's truly been a while *hugs* Ooh you've read amazing books there! I still haven't got into Illuminae, but the Spinster series sounds amazing. A Little Life is also very intimidating to me, that book is HUGE!
