How are you all doing? I did a little revamp on the blog, appearance-wise. Hope you like it!
I am currently reading
Moon Over Soho
(Peter Grant #2)
By: Ben Aaronovitch
Genre: Urban fantasy police procedural / mystery
From: Borrowed from my sister
Something violently supernatural had happened, something strong enough to leave an imprint on the corpse of part-time jazz saxophonist Cyrus Wilkinson as if he were a wax cylinder recording. He’s not the first musician to drop dead of a heart attack right after a gig, but no one was going to let me start examining corpses to check for supernatural similarities. Instead, it was back to old-fashioned police legwork. It didn’t take me long to realise there were monsters stalking Soho, creatures feeding off the gift that separates great musicians from those who can raise a decent tune. What they take is beauty. What they left behind is broken lives.
I got a lot of books I had reserved from the library, so of course I started reading the book I had borrowed from my sister… Of course, it only makes sense, right? I really liked the first Peter Grant novel, so I’m pretty excited about this one. I love how easy it is to read! The jazz theme also feels very intriguing. And I want to read more about my love, Inspector Nightingale. <3
Last week I finished
I finished another H.G. Wells classic, The Island of Dr. Moreau. I have to say that I liked it best from the books I’ve read from him! Good, chilly moments, and interesting thoughts about the nature of men and animals.
