Happy new year everyone! Hope you all had a good start into the new year and I wish you all a grand time in 2013!
Usually I would now be doing a recap post of the previous reading year but I kind of stopped counting the books I read and disappeared for 3 months without a word, sorry!!!
Last autumn I moved again (this is becoming a bad habit of mine), decided to go back to uni and somehow couldn’t bring myself to write up reviews. Blogging felt increasingly like a chore, which I hated because I love the book blogging community and missed all your wonderful posts. But I think the break did me good, I’m itching to get back into it and share my reading experiences with enthusiastic readers.
New year, fresh start, right? So these books are on my mind right now:
An Instance of the Fingerpost by Ian Pears
I have this wonderfully used copy, well-read by very hands-on readers and now and then pages come loose, but I love the feel of the book and it makes reading the book even more cosy. I adore detective stories (probably not a secret at this point ) and have a strange fascination with the history of medicine, so why am I only reading it now? Also, the book comes recommended by Vishy, so it has to be great! I’m about halfway through at the moment.
Marzi by Sylvain Savoia and Marzena Sowa
This is a comic memoir about life in Poland during communism and was lent to me by a friend. I’m very excited about this one as I feel that I have read little about Poland and the drawing style appeals much more to me than I thought from the cover.
I hope everyone had a great reading year in 2012 and I look forward to hear about everyone’s plans for 2013!
