Its Monday! What are you Reading? is a weekly bookish meme held on Book Journey by Sheila. It’s a great place to discuss your week in reading and see what others are reading too.
This is the first week that I have managed to read more than one book in a week for a long long time! The first book I read was Brothers Fury by Giles Kristian. I got sent this from the publishers and it is set in the English Civil War. It is the second book in a series but have not yet read the first, something I will be sorting out very soon! I really enjoyed the book and I’m hoping that there are more in the series as it ends on rather a big cliff hanger.
I am currrently reading Mistress of the Sea by Jenny Barden. I got sent this book by the publishers too and I only started it last night so I am hoping that its going to be good. Its a book about sailing to the new world so it does sound very good!
Next up is a book from my kindle one that I downloaded a long time ago but have never started, A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. I have never read a Dickens book, much to my shame but hopefully I’ll end up loving it.
Synopsis – “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”, “It is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known” – so the novel begins and ends with some of Dicken’s best-known words, and between the two is every Briton’s view of the worst excesses of the French Revolution.
