So, I’ve finally got around to posting my first book list of the year! I read these all the way back in January…..
The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver
This book was brilliant. I like books which are kind of based on historical events by are actually fiction (does that make sense!) and I learned lots from this book. I also thought it was a good length as I hate it when you get a good book that is really short and you don’t want to read it because you don’t want it to end!
Mr Norris Changes Trains by Isherwood
From reading the back cover this doesn’t sound like it’s going to be great but it actually surprised me and I really got into it. I had a few books by Isherwood for Christmas so look out for them in future book lists!
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy by John le Carre
I really, really wanted to like this book but I just didn’t get it. There seemed to be too many characters and I didn’t really follow the plot. To be honest, I’m not entirely sure I know what happened in the end! Maybe I should watch the film instead?!
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
I loved The Time Travelers Wife and this book was just as good, if a bit odd! There are a few twists in this which I wasn’t expecting so I’d definitely recommend it.
Has anyone read any of these? What did you think of them?
