When it comes to books, my eyes are always bigger than my stomach (or brain?). I like to request as many books as I can from the library, sit back and wait for them to come in. The problem is that they often come in at once, leaving me to try to plow through seven or more books in a few weeks. I read during my commute and will curl up on the couch after work if I’m really into the book. Luckily, I have also been traveling quite a bit, giving me the chance to catch up on a bunch of reading.
During the past few weeks I’ve read The Uninvited Guests and Cutting for Stone. The Uninvited Guests was a quick read, fun and witty. Cutting for Stone on the other hand was rather heavy but full of beautiful characters and descriptions of Ethiopia. I immediately had to go find Ethiopian food when I finished.
I’m currently reading Dragonfly in Amber. It is actually the sequel to Outlander (oops, will have to go request that now) but can easily stand alone. It is a combination of historical fiction and fantasy and and makes me want to travel to Scotland right away.
