Sunday Salon - Struggling and Sailing
I haven't managed much reading this Sunday as I have been on a weekend sailing course. A lot of fun but hard work, reading about it didn't quite prepare me for doing it!
I have managed a couple of chapters of The Thirteeth Tale by Diane Setterfield. I was really excited about this book. It came highly recommended and had so many good reviews but I am really struggling with it. I love the writing but I'm not really engaged with the characters. It's not so bad that I won't finish but I'm not dying to pick it up either.
It's especially hard to keep going as I got an Amazon delivery of the following;
Life as we know it - Susan Beth Pfeffer
Looking for Alaska - John Green
The Inheritance of Lost - Kiran Desai
All of which are crying out to be started.
