I’m very aware that it’s been all quiet on the blogging front this week. Work, defective laptops, blocked sinks… you name it, it’s got in the way of my precious writing time – and, most importantly, my precious reading time! But I tell you what, I’ve got a couple of cracking books on the go right now. “Flood of Fire” is reaching its conclusion (I know I’ve been talking about this for ages but it’s just not the kind of book you can race through!) and I have to say I’m going to feel quite bereft when this epic trilogy comes to an end. Also on the currently reading pile is the astounding “All the light we cannot see”, which is blowing my mind a little bit more with every page. There will be reviews of these two gems appearing on Girl, Reading very shortly, but right now, after this fleeting blog visit, I’m withdrawing from the world to spend the rest of the bank holiday with my books – the best bank holiday I’ve had in a very long time.
