Last week I was still taking it easy with the reading because of my sudden bout of back pain, and finished only one book. I’m feeling almost back to normal now, so the reading continues (with frequent stretching pauses)!
I am currently reading
I have just started to read this steampunk novel. I discovered it in GoodReads, thought it looked interesting, and decided to order it. I won’t lie, a big factor in my decision was cover appeal (although the title is much more garishly orange on the real book than on the web image). I was also drawn in by the idea of an action-loving female field agent named Braun paired with a bookish male archivist named Books.
I have made no progress with this science fiction novel during the last couple of weeks – it’s just been lying on my self. Now I mean to really tackle it, which is just as well, since I need to return it to the library next week… I am still interested, though.
Last week I read
This fantasy novel set in Regency England where magic exists was a charming and quick read. Read more of my thoughts about it in my August Wrap-Up post.
