    Enjoying my summer break!

    So far this month I've read the Regeneration trilogy by Pat Barker, the first three books of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, Quidditch Through the Ages and The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss and starting Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger...

    Last month I read all seven books of the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Fire and Blood by George Martin, Princeof Shadows by Rachel Caine, The Sealed Letter by Emma Donoghue, A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling, and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bront

    And that's with days out with J and appointments and driving lessons and doing some prep work for uni!

    Uni and Counselling is really going to get in the way!!!

    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    Have read 11.22.63 by Stephen King. Took me AGES but really enjoyed it. Also raided J's bookshelf and have read Red for Danger by L.T.C. Holt. It's about rail disasters up to the 1950's and was actually really interesting!

    It was a bit disappointing but enjoyed it up to that point.

    See that's my issue with Stephen King's more recent (ok since Desperation tbh) books. They are stunningly brilliantly written, but the endings are disappointing and bordering on "and then they woke up and it had all been a dream"

    I prefer his earlier stuff. Cell isn't too bad but Dreamcatcher, Green Mile, Pet Semetary, Carrie... they beat them hands down
