I'm still sick. It might be more than just a plain cold, it seems to get worse instead of better each day. But… it is the perfect time to catch up on my reading. I finally finished my first of this year, second one will follow soon. Anyway...
Wanting: The Somnambulist by Essie FoxYes, I feel very drawn to the amazing cover, but I've also heard some great things about Essie Fox. This particular story should be one that ties the lives of three women together and changes every one of them. It's supposed to be quite gothic and mysterious. Sounds promising! And did I mention the cover?!
Reading: The Willoughbys by Lois LowryI suppose you could compare it to the Lemony Snicket books, though in this little book the children are pretty horrible themselves too. However it is still a quirky, funny and somehow uplifting little book. Enjoying it so far!
Waiting: Jonathon Strange & Mr. NorrellThis book sounds so good! I've been wanting to read it for ages and picked up a secondhand copy some time ago. Even though I'm usually not put off by big books… with it's 2+ pounds and 1000+ pages, I just haven't found the right moment yet. Like I said, I haven't read as much lately, and now that I'm changing that again, I'd rather start easier.
Are you enjoying anything in particular right now? I got a really amazing recommendation in the comments on my first Mixed Shelf post! Would not mind getting more! They might show up in my next post.
