Musing Mondays


I thought I'd have a go at one of these weekly update thingy-ma-jigys. Just for cheap thrills. I like this one because it means I can be meandering and chatty. Lush. Off to it then.
  • Describe one of your reading habits
  • What book you've recently bought yourself or another and why
  • What are you reading now, why did you choose it, what you think of it, are you enjoying it

I don't think I have very many reading habits. I tend to just whip a book out and read it anywhere (and pretty much everywhere). But I do like to listen to music as I read. Classical music if it's a generally difficult or mind-boggling book but otherwise anything along the lines of Bastille, Ben Howard, The XX or Alt-J. Got to treat the ears as well as the eyes. Having a all round party in my head. Delightful.

I recently bought my sister The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Her kindle has broken (paper 1 - digital 0), and I am determined for her to be a reader (crazed book-nerd sister moments frequently ensue). I have heard very good things about this book and I know the fact that she could see a film adaptation at the end will be a real bonus. Plus it is quite short which is generally a winner for her.

I am just finishing off The Light Between Oceans by ML Stedman. 'Loving it' would be a ridiculous understatement. I am pretty much drooling over this book (urgh). I choose this book for shallow reasons: I adore lighthouses, the sea, and the cover is really really cool. Dork. But, the story has intrigued me from the start and the further I get into it, the more I struggle to put it down. Expect gushing reviews.

(You're only meant to answer one of these questions but I'm in the mood for talking so I guess you'll just have to listen (read))



  1. I enjoyed The Perks of being a Wallflower and I totally loved The Light Between Oceans - it was one of my top 5 books I read last year.
    Here's my musing:

    1. I finished The Light Between Oceans last night and it is certainly going to be a hard act to follow.
