Most unusually for me, I’m currently reading three books.
Firstly, I’m still ploughing through this, a little bit every day. I’m about a third of the way through it now. Some of it’s fascinating, a lot of it’s very dry. I’m learning quite a lot.
I’m really enjoying this book – I just love Giles Coren’s acerbic wit, and find myself frequently laughing out loud. Ashley came to see what I was making such a noise about yesterday evening!
I’m reviewing a pre-publication copy of this for Lovereading. It’s a debut novel (psychological thriller) by a man, but written in the first person as a woman – which usually sets alarms bells ringing for me. But it’s actually quite gripping. Reminds me a bit of Before I Go To Sleep. I really hope the ending is going to live up to the rest of it.
Watching-wise – well, not much really. Summer TV schedules seem to be well underway, with very little I want to watch.
One programme we do watch every single week is Casualty – we’ve watched it for YEARS, and it’s one of the only programmes that Ashley and I watch together. However, I’m immensely bored with it over the last six months or so, and if it wasn’t for the fact that we watch it together, and it’s sort of a weekly tradition for us, I don’t think we’d be bothering with it any more.
Do you find yourself watching things out of some sort of misplaced loyalty to the programme, or because you don’t enjoy it any more but wish you did? Or is that just me?
