Didn’t do very much reading this week; continued to make some progress on The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters. I decided on my reading list for Carl’s Once Upon a Time VI challenge, and started my first read, The Forgotten Beasts of Eld. Hoping to do more reading over the Easter break.

The following new books came into the Bride’s abode this week:

  • A Lesson in Secrets by Jacqueline Winspear – the latest Maisie Dobbs mystery (I think I’m a book behind so must get on)
  • Timeless by Gail Carriger – the latest Alexia Tarabotti story, “a novel of vampires, werewolves and Egyptian thingamabobs”

As of today I am on a book-buying embargo (apart from those pre-ordered on Amazon) and I am also going to try to catch up with my backlog of reviews (four books and counting) before I forget what it was that I thought about them.

I meant to post about Carl’s Once Upon a Time VI challenge earlier in the week but to be totally honest the delay is because of my dithering over whether to have a book list for the challenge or not. After quite a lot of thinking I’ve decided to revisit an unfinished reading list from the year before last, none of which I have read in the intervening months. So the list is:

I’m also going to add a re-read of The Hobbit; as I mentioned here I read the first chapter and intended to stop there but was drawn in once again so am going to have to finish it (and it’s good preparation for the movie later this year).

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence
