Since I haven’t been posting monthly updates on what I’ve been reading, I thought I would save it all for posting a summer reading list. It looks more impressive this way. 😉
By far my favourites are The Night Circus and The Scorpio Races — the former is so… enchanting that you can’t not get entangled in its web; and the latter because it retells Scottish folklore in a semi-modern setting (about a hundred years ago), and it works perfectly. Though I did also enjoy reading The Snow Child, Treasure at the Heart of the Tanglewood, and Wool — and I’m very pleased indeed that Wool is part of a trilogy and that my public library has all three.
I’m going to be working long hours in the office these coming months, so I don’t know how much autumnal fun reading I’ll get to do — just enough to keep my sanity, at least!
