I Must Confess…what I’m reading right now
This week I’m so very glad we have reached the end of school term and have a couple of weeks to rest and recover and prepare for the next term.
As I’m not taking much leave these holidays I’m just thankful for not having to make lunches or iron or ferry the children all over town for two glorious weeks.
While I’ll be working most of the time I am looking forward to evenings free of chores and the odd day where we can do something fun as a family.
I’m also hoping to get back into reading while the opportunity to have a little more time to relax presents itself. Hence my very self-serving prompt for this week.
I have been a little lost since I finished the Hunger Games trilogy a few weeks back. It sucked me in and it’s been a long time since I’ve read a decent quality novel.
Possibly, because most of my normal fare resembles this, which has been sitting on my bedside table, unread, for the last month:
The classy handwritten pricetag on this book pretty much reflects it’s quality (or lack thereof…)
If you have any tips for a new series to try, let me know. I normally prefer lighter fare and a bit of romance but I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the Hunger Games given it’s not in my normal genre of choice.
It’s given me hope that my tastes have finally matured so any tips you can give me, will be more than welcome!
Because I haven’t been able to pick up another novel lately, I’ve turned to non-fiction and have a few travel books to read right now:
I’ve also been reading and studying these:
Big map of the US of A…
and a big map of the home of Eurovision!
We are planning on a big overseas adventure next year which will nicely coincide with my 40th – I personally couldn’t ask for a better way to
reluctantly accept welcome the onset of middle age!
It’s a toss up between the US and Europe at the moment – ideally we’d do both but I’m not sure whether the budget will stretch that far. Either way, the promise of a dream holiday and the fun of planning another family get-away has left me giddy.
What are you reading right now? And do you have any tips for me on what to read next or where we should go on our family sabbatical next year?
