I have a bit of a backlog of reviews at the moment (when I say backlog, I haven’t even written them) which is rather naughty of me. Recently I seem to have been storming through books at such a rate that I haven’t been pausing to review them afterwards and then I’m struggling when it comes to sitting down at the computer to sum up my thoughts. In fact, I’ve just been sat here for the last 40 minutes writing reviews and I’ve deleted them all as I didn’t feel as if I was articulating myself properly. Hopefully this will pass quickly and allow me to tell you about some cracking reads of late. 2012 has been a stonking year for books and I’ve picked up some classics that have really struck a chord within me, too.
Fingers crossed that my writing mojo comes back and over the next week or so you’ll be able to read reviews of Flowers For Algernon, The Testimony, The Girl Who Fell from the Sky and Einstein’s Dreams. All of which have been brilliant reads and I can’t recommend enough.
While I’m here I also want to drop hints about a new project that I’m going to start on the blog very soon. The idea was
stolen borrowed from James Smythe, the wonderful author of The Testimony. He has set out to read ALL of Stephen King’s works in chronological order and while I thought he was mad at first I became rather envious. So, I’ve decided to take on a similar challenge myself but with an author who I haven’t read before but who is heralded as one of the best living writers out there. More to come on this later in the week.
