Literary Life: April – June in Review

Brighton

“Citizens of Earth, rejoice. Your Lord and Master stands on high.”

Oh, hi there. Doctor Who fans may understand the reference above. To avoid spoilers, the last two episodes have felt like a glorious reward for a season of ‘meh’, an investment paid off.

Anyway, welcome to a brief review of what I’ve been up to / reading since last I wrote. I’ve not been invested in the blog (or other people’s) for the last year, but I’ve made changes and my desire to act has returned.

Currently Reading:

The Lessons by Naomi Alderman

Unfinished:

  2. The Trouble with Goats and Sheep – Joanna Cannon
  3. I’m Travelling Alone – Samuel Bjørk
  4. A New Treasury Of Poetry – Neil Philip

I hope you enjoyed Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb – it has been on my TBR for too long! I have recently read a run of great books, including: Monstrous Voices edited by David Thomas Moore, My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier and Sandlands by Rosy Thornton.

Great to see an update. Hope you have enjoyed reading many of the books! :D I have been in the bad habit of watching Netflix instead of reading. I feel guilty about it and hope to change haha ?.
