I've been having trouble getting into reading this week, and that is really not like me. I'm not usually a mood reader, and I've tried three different (very different) genres, and nothing has really held my interest.
I started with my next NetGalley review book The Book of Paradise, which is a very odd book first published in 1939. It's giving me Good Omen's vibes, but it's also very strange and has a talking baby. I wanted something more accessible, so I started Traitors Run, which is marketed as a space opera.
There is a lot of world building here, and two main viewpoints, one in first person and one in third person, which was odd. I didn't get into it because it was a bit epic and big for my mood so I took a break to read a romance, but that seemed too small and simple. See what I mean about my reading mood being difficult? Anyway, I put the romance aside and am now quite enjoying Traitor's Run. The story is coming clear it just takes a (very little bit) to start to understand what is going on.
As to what I'm reading next, I'm going to finish all three of these book and I'm not really looking beyond that at the moment. I'm also doing a series of reviews of non-fiction books, (part 1 here) and I will be adding part two later in the week.
Luckily the knitting has been going quite well and is pretty relaxing. I'm chugging away on this jumper. It's one of those glorious projects that is interesting enough to be fun, but simple enough to be relaxing.
I'm joining in with Kat from As Kat Knits for Unravelled Wednesday and Kat from the Bookdate for It's Monday, What Are You Reading. This week I'm also linking up with Sam from Taking on a World of Words to for WWW Wednesday where we talk about what we are currently reading, what we have just finished and what we are going to read next.
