I am so late, I am almost too late, which is how life in general feels just at the moment. So much going on both at work and at home. I know it will all come together in the end, but the process of getting each of the individual projects completed seems forever destined to be done in the final possible minutes.
However this month I especially didn't want to miss the link as I managed to read three, very different, books. They were Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, The Unlikely Pilgramage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce and A Little Love Song by Michelle Magorian. I am not going to say too much here, because I have read them as part of A Blogging Good Read, which will be going live on Alex's blog on May 7th (the link has now been updated to take you straight to the post). There will be more detailed comments over there, from three bloggers who have read the same three books. It would be great if you popped along to check out what we thought, and I'd love to hear your thoughts on any of these books too!
I can't write this post without revealing that one of these three has become one of my favourite books ever, and I have been heartily recommending it to anyone who will listen. I simply adored it, and am wondering what will be a reasonable length of time to wait before I can pick it up and start it again. I cannot wait to see what the other bloggers thought (particularly as it was my pick - I had no idea I was going to love it, having picked it from the shelf full of books The Husband has bought me) and find out whether other people enjoyed it as much as I did.
I hope that has got you intrigued, and I will make sure I link to the post here when it goes live. Next month I will be reading The Shock of the Fall, having already started on the first few chapters, and I'm determined to restart, and finish, The Art of Fielding. I'm looking forward to catching up on everyone else's reads, as well as continuing to nurture my rediscovered love of reading.
Linking up with The Year in Books
