Winter is the time for books. Unfortunately, this year I will have to keep the fun reading to an absolute minimum until mid-January. Also, I don’t really have anything exciting to read at the moment. But oh boy, be assured that I’m heading to a book store the day I finish my last exam (other people would head straight to a bar. I might do that, too). So I thought I would talk to you about some of the books that are on my to-read-list.
The wise man’s fear – Patrick Rothfuss
A few month ago, I read the first book in The Kingkiller Chronicle’s (excuse me, but what’s up with that name? I hope it will make sense once I’ve read the other two parts). I wasn’t as blown away by it as expected but I did like it quite a lot, enough to want to keep reading. Also, the first part felt more like an introduction and I can’t wait for the story to start properly. At least I hope it will.
After You – Jojo Moyes
I can’t read a book and then not read the sequel, if there is one. So as cheesy as it might be, I definitely want to read After You, the sequel to Me Before You. I will probably cry a lot.
The Song Rising – Samantha Shannon
Please don’t make fun of me now: this book will only be published in November 2016. So basically, a year from now. Great. But it also means that I can look forward to reading it for another year. Now that’s what I call positive thinking. I already talked about The Bone Season Series in this post, so I won’t go into further detail now. But just by the fact that I’m talking about this book now should tell you: I’m well excited!
Night Walks – Charles Dickens
This is an essay about walking the streets of London after Midnight. I love London and I think reading something “classic” every now and again never does any harm, so this essay should be a rather good combination.
That’s it for the moment, but these should keep me busy for some weeks once I have finished all my exams. I can’t even tell you how much I’m looking forward to that time!
