Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
I re-read at least one Harry Potter book a year. Every now and then the urge to dive back into Hogwarts overwhelms me, but alas, I only own the last two (the full set sits at home, jealously guarded by my family members). Much laughing, sobbing and nostalgia occurs. I also read Half Blood Prince but my copy has mysteriously disappeared since I turned the last page...
The Bone Season || The Mime Order
These belong to a rather spiffing dystopian series by Samantha Shannon, who is basically everything I wanted to be whilst a student. (Who am I kidding... I still want to be her). The scenes flit between Seven Dials and Oxford, with heaps of adventure and intrigue. The only downside is the wait for the next book...
Throne of Glass (finished) || Crown of Midnight || Heir of Fire
I recently discovered Sarah J Maas whilst on a YA Amazon binge, and whilst her writing is never going to win any awards, her storylines are so compelling - I found myself whizzing through Throne of Glass so quickly and enjoyably, so picked up the next two in the series. The second book promises more character development with the same intriguing story, making it perfect for light reading after work!
To be read...
The Miniaturist || Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell ||The Seven Sisters
I've had The Miniaturist on my bookshelf for months now; it's high time I cracked it open as I've heard such good things about it. Both Jon and I were addicted to the BBC's adaptation of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, and I must confess this is my second attempt at reading the book... I tried to read my mum's copy a few years ago and kept falling short at the first section. I'm determined to finish it this time! Finally, The Seven Sisters is an airport purchase, driven by the usual WH Smith offers... I didn't get round to reading it on the plane back from Florida, so I've added it to my list this month.
Finally, another book which will no doubt take precedence over all others when I get my hands on it... Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith (aka Queen JK) launches on Tuesday and I'm so excited to read it!
Are you cultivating a reading list at the moment, or do you have any recommendations? Let me know as I'm always eager to add to our little library!
