Firstly, I would like to apologize for my short, unintentional hiatus from my blog. To be fair, I have not forgotten you my fellow bookworms. I have spent the past week reading through the 888 paged book, I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes. So I have been keeping up with my reading goals. I didn’t speed through it like I have been going through the previous books, but that is largely due it’s numerous pages, and as you might tell by my review, rather disappointing plot.
Another reason why this post has been prolonged was because I spent the weekend here:
I went to Geneva for the weekend, and we found some time to go hiking in the French Alps. More precisely we went to col de la golese. I had such a lovely time being out there in the wilderness for a little while, and breathing in the fresh mountain air. A little TMI: my bum hurt for days afterward though, got a proper workout!
This weekend was extra special because I got my hands on several new books, meaning that my reading list has changed once again! I brought back I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou, The Hundred-Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson, The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini,and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson. Really excited to get through such a wide range of genres (although a Swedish pattern seems to be emerging…). Have you read any of these? How did you find them?
More great news; I have reached 100 followers!! I am so pleased that people find this blog at least mildly interesting. I hope that I can continue to provide some insightful reviews for books/novels that interest you.
Lastly, I have put together a new page with My Top 10 Books of all time! Check them out, as there might be some surprises. Once again, I can’t wait to read your comments about them!
