Sunday Post #16, Home Alone

The Sunday Post is hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things received, and share news about what is coming up on the blog for the week ahead. To get in on the Sunday fun, see the rules here: Sunday Post Meme. 

Outside the Blog
     I am left alone at home for this weekend which is not a bad thing at all when you have a great wish to read and too many people walking around during a week.
    I finished A Monster Calls this week I thought it is a very touching story and written masterfully, I cannot give this book full praise as it seems to me (regardless of the topic seriousness) too juvenile.
     I started a non-fiction book which does not happen often The Making of Pride and Prejudice by Sue Birtwistle and Susie Conklin. I was not sure I would like this type of book and was pleasantly surprised by the smooth narration and great structure of the book. I do not hurry through it and enjoying reading about making one of my favourite TV series.

  5. The Thirst sounds like it will be a good read. A few weeks ago, I marked it on my list of new releases to check out. I hope you enjoy it.
