I suck at reading these days and I did not complete my 2017 reading challenge (my goal was 20 books and I read at 6) so this year, I need to get it together. I still haven’t set a goal for how many books to read in 2018 but I’d at least like to start my reading journey this year by setting a holiday reading challenge that will begin with the reading of a few books I picked up at Kwa Haraba Art Gallery and Cafe. They stock second-hand reads going at MK2000 each and I got myself a few as a Christmas present to myself.
I’m so excited to read all of these and (hopefully) post some reviews on them. (I have already finished We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves which I loved and have a few thoughts about it so watch this space.)
In no particular order, here’s what’s on my reading list during this school break:
Gwenni Morgan is not like any other girl in her small Welsh town. Inquisitive, bookish and fill of spirit, she can fly in her sleep and loves playing detective. So when a neighbour mysteriously vanished and no one seems to be asking the right questions, Gwenni decided to conduct her own investigation.
Is Sophie Fevvers, toast of Europe’s capitals, part swan…or all fake?
Courted by the Prince of Wales and painted by Toulouse-Lautrec, she is an aerialiste extraordinaire and star of Colonel Kearney’s circus. She is also part woman, part swan. Jack Walser, an American journalist, is on a quest to discover the truth behind her identity. Dazzled by his love for her, and desperate for the scoop of a lifetime, Walser has no choice but to join the circus on its magical tour through turn-of-the-nineteenth-century London, St Petersburg and Siberia.
What if you grew up to realise that your father had used your childhood as an experiment?
Rosemary doesn’t talk very much, and about certain things she’s silent. She had a sister, Fern, herwhirlwind other half, who vanished from her life in circumstances she wishes she could forget. And
it’s been ten years since she last saw her beloved older brother Lowell.
Now at college, Rosemary starts to see that she can’t go forward without going back, back to the time when, aged five, she was sent away from home to her grandparents and returned to find Fern gone.
I’m sure I’ll be adding more books to my TBR as the year goes. Maybe I could get ideas from you, lovely…what’s on your reading list right now? Let me know in the comments.
