Musing Mondays


Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

I have recently bought myself:

Three wonderful bargains from my local Oxfam. I'm particulalry excited about The Paris Wife since I have recently been having a bit of a love affair with the whole Hemingway circle. I've read some sparkling reviews about it and I think I will read it either before or after reading A Farewell to Arms. Delightful. I also picked up Alexandra Harris's biography of Virginia Woolf (it is slightly less daunting than the Hermione Lee one) and The Storm of Steel by Ernst Junger. It has been a while since I've dipped my toes into the world of the Great War so I am looking forward to reading this classic.

Bit of a short one today, I've just started watching Broadchurch and I'm already hooked. Who killed Danny?! No spoilers please, I'm only on episode 3. Yes, I realise I'm behind, I laugh in the face of convention.
