Eeeek, I’m behind!
I should be on my fourth book today but nope! I’m definitely including Children of the Corn 😄 At least that way, I’ll have finished three books soon.
I’m nearly done with Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock and it’s at a very emotional point. You know what I’m like with emotional books – but I can’t say this book has made me tear up even a little bit yet. I’m sad to say that I think I probably won’t love this book as much as everyone else does!
Do you ever get that with an author? You read something of theirs that’s absolutely amazing, so you go out and buy another of their books because that must mean they’re all amazing – and none of their other books even come close. I had it with both Patrick Ness and David Nicholls (and with Matthew Quick, it’s The Silver Linings Playbook that’s the best, obviously). It’s annoying because when I’ve read an amazing book, I obviously want to go and find more amazing books from the same author, and they always fall short because I can’t help but compare it to that first book I loved.
I just finished Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock, and honestly, I’m not sure what I think.
I wanted to love it, I really did. I’ve never heard anyone say a bad word about it, and I already knew Quick was an amazing author. But that ending… I presume Leonard was OK in the end, but as a reader I like to have it spelled out for me. I hate open endings. Maybe that makes me a less sophisticated reader than some, but hey – I don’t read all the way to the end of a book so that stuff can be left unresolved.
Anyway, stupidly, I didn’t bring another book with me today, and I don’t think there’s anything on my Kindle that I want to read. Maybe I’ll have a look for some free e-books later.
At least I’m back on track now!
OK so I lied. There is a book I could read: Wuthering Heights. But I don’t wanna…
I tried to read a little bit of Wuthering Heights at lunch and I was sort of liking it but I don’t think it’s going to be one of my favourite classics, unfortunately. Jane Eyre is definitely still my favourite Bronte novel.
I have to admit I put it down quite early during my lunch break and had a nap instead…
I DON’T WANNA READ I WANNA WATCH POKEMON LEAVE ME ALONE.
