I knew I shouldn’t have posted any “I plan to read” books last week, ’cause I ended up reading completely different ones! The reason why I didn’t read Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake was because I wasn’t feeling like it, and I want to read it when I’m in the right mood so as not to spoil the experience for myself.
This week I’m reading a red book and a blue book. The pictures take you to GoodReads as always.
I am currently reading
A science fiction novel about a master thief called Jean le Flambeur who is rescued from prison by a woman called Mieli with her spidership Perhonen. So far it has been a very weird, very different, and very interesting read. I’m only a few chapters in. The writer is Finnish, btw, but this was still originally published in English! I’m reading this as part of my 2012 Sci-Fi Challenge.
I don’t think this book needs an introduction: It’s the second Hunger Games book, continuing the saga of BAMF Katniss Everdeen against the Capitol. My sister loaned me this ages ago, but I only now got around to reading it. I’m almost finished. Like the first book, this one just sucks you in and you’ve read a couple of hundred pages before you know it.
Last week I read
A Finnish YA fantasy book that takes place half in a fairytale-like world of flower, tree and mushroom spirits, and half in our modern world, where a depressed teenager tries to deal with her father’s death. I liked the book well enough, although it was a bit uneven.
