I don’t always read books….

I read a book and think I am the people in the book.

New Header, New Home

Today is moving day, and all of these precious items are being packed away and not seen again for another week.

Since I will have a new home, I figured, why not update the header image on my blog! Hope you enjoy!

See you on the other side!

Birdsong

Birdsong quote

I have recently finished Birdsong, and was shocked at how it impacted me emotionally. It wasn’t the story that I found so moving, but rather the parallel lives of those back in Blighty and the indifference they felt towards the front line soldiers.

A full review to follow, but for now a quote from the book that truly illustrates how this war affected the men who gave their bodies and minds to it.

…protect each other

Mockingjay quote

My escape

My Escape

 

 

I think this is never more prevalent than now, I have read 3 books within a couple of weeks and I currently have a strong footing in my next. I am not sure how I do it, I just begin reading and become so consumed by the story and the way my brain can make a film inside my mind that I struggle to put my kindle down. I truly believe readers like myself are addicts. I am ok with it.

So, reviews that will be arriving soon are:

Tracks by Robyn Davidson

An Officer and a Spy by Robert Harris

Starting Over by Evan Grace

and then the new John Grisham!
