Reading is one of my favourite pastimes, I find it so relaxing to get lost in good book and completely loose all notion of time. With a 50 minute commute on the train to London everyday for work I find myself with a lot of time to read (however, let’s face it, I also find myself with a lot of time to watch Netflix.. but that’s another post altogether.)
A lot of these books are part of series which I have either been reading for some time or I am only just getting into. Three I actually received for the 22nd Birthday from my brother – Rothfuss, Pullman and Legercrantz. But, despite where I got them from. These are the 6 books on my ‘to read’ list;
Lee Child – Persuader/Without Fair | These are my ‘I don’t really want to have to focus on what I’m actually reading’ books. They’re always a fairly decent story line with twists and turns throughout. But, they’re fairly easy to follow and not the most difficult read.
Patrick Rothfuss – The Name of the Wind | A number of people have recommended this to me, and so I feel like it’s about time I get round to reading it. The first in a series, I hope to discover I love the first book!
Philip Pullman – The Amber Spyglass | The final book in the trilogy, I was bought the first for my birthday a long time ago but only got round to reading it recently. They’re kids books, supposedly, but well written and it’s a fairly unpredictable and rather interesting plot line. I can’t wait to see how it ends.
David Lagercrantz – The Girl in the Spiders Web | I read the original Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson and I have to say, I really enjoyed them. This if the first novel in the series not authored by Larsson, but written by David Lagercrantz. I’m intrigued to see what he does with the story and characters.
Kate Mosse – Labrinth | The plot of this book is most intriguing. Set both in the Middle Ages and present-day France, it divides into two main storylines that follow two protagonists, Alaïs (from the year 1209) and Alice (in the year 2005). Ultimately the story becomes a quest for the Holy Grail.
