I’ve had a busy week this last week preparing for my week away. for some reason my internet connection is not working very well and i have only been able to post the one image!
Over the last week I’ve read two books one on my kindle and one paper book. The first book i read was The Labyrinth of Osiris by Paul Sussman. This book was part of a reading challenge that i was taking part in. This book was very good and although i dont normally read thrillers i really enjoyed this book.
The second book i read was The Mind Readers by Lori Brighton. This book was free for a day on the kindle and its still free looking back now. Its a young adult paranormal romance book but i really did enjoy this book. I loved it so much im going to download the next in the series.
At the minute I’m currently reading The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling. I have been looking forward to reading this book since it arrived and ive now started it. Its so good so far and its apart as far away from Hary Potter as you can get, whch in my opinion is a good thing for her. I love the HP books but i think as an author she needed to step away and she has!
Next up is the book for next months reading circle, The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. Now im very much looking forward to this as it sounds so good!
A heart-warming and inspirational tale in which Enzo, a loyal family dog, tells the story of his human family, how they nearly fell apart, and what he did to bring them back together.
Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: he thinks and feels in nearly human ways. He has educated himself by watching extensive television, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver. Through Denny, Enzo realizes that racing is a metaphor: that by applying the techniques a driver would apply on the race track, one can successfully navigate the ordeals and travails one encounters in life.
Enzo relates the story of his human family, sharing their tragedies and triumphs. In the end, despite what he sees as his own limitations as a dog, Enzo comes through heroically to preserve the Swift family.
