CURRENTLY READING | 024


Last week turned out to be a good reading week - I finished The Lake House by Kate Morton and absolutely loved the story, with a review coming up later on this week. Upon finishing The Lake House, I tweeted about the book having the perfect ending, and have since been recommended The Forgotten Garden to read next of Kate Morton's books. Although I've read just two of her books, I'm definitely calling Kate Morton as a new favourite author.

I gave myself a little reading breather after completing The Lake House, and a day later picked up Ned's Circus of Marvels by Justin Fisher which is proving to be an adventurous middle grade read. Although I'm still in the early stages of this title - first quarter - I do hope to finish it before the week is out and move on to a review book; I'm currently eyeing Final Girls by Riley Sager as my next read.

  3. I loved The Lake House. A chunky book does require a breathing space afterwards, though.

    Thanks for sharing, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. I ended up not starting Final Girls yet, as I have a couple of other review books published before that one, but I'm so excited to read it!

    1. Kate Morton's books tend to be on the longer side, but they are so beautifully atmospheric and descriptive. If you do pick up any of her books, I hope you enjoy!
