From The Waffle bookshelves – part 2

So, where was I? Oh yes, books on the go for me at the moment. I’ve almost finished “Actress” by Anne Enright. This book was a Christmas gift from my friend Clare who is very good at choosing novels for me that I haven’t read. I like the cover picture with the little girl on. She looks a little like I did as a child, I wonder if this influenced Clare’s choice of this gift for me?! This story is mainly about a mother-daughter relationship with a famous mother. I’ve enjoyed it so far, not loved it, but looking forward to reading it to the end. I’ll probably pass it on to the charity shop when I’m done. I very rarely read books more than once.

Next up I need to start reading the next book for my book club which I collected from the library. This is “The Girl with the Louding Voice” by Abi Darė. I’m excited to start this one. The deadline is 17 May for our next book club meeting. We select our books randomly from a long list produced by the library. This is great as it pushes us out of our comfort zone with what we are reading and sometimes we have a pleasant surprise.

I like the colourful book cover!

Next up I have another book recommended by a blog friend, this time by Basia. Her blog “ Life Through Basia’s eyes” I am really enjoying recently. So you see I also have many interesting blogs to read as well as books piling up. It’s a nice problem to have. She recommended this one below..

Damon Galgut is an award winning South African novelist I hadn’t heard of before. It looks like an interesting read.

Last, but not least, I have now received a birthday present book from my friend Clare. I do love to receive books as gifts. She said that she was just starting to read it too. I’ll probably get around to starting this one in a couple of months. My priority reading has to be my book club latest one and then the ones that are due back to the library.

What are you reading at the moment? (Apart from TWW). Anything good? 😊🤔📚📚📚📗📓

  1. The Girl with the Louding Voice a very colourful colour. Thst and the title got me interested that I looked it up to see what it was about and sounds a very good book.

  2. Hi. I’m deeply flattered – thank you. At the moment I’m reading the Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. It’s a bit of a mountain of a book. I started it a few years ago as I had read The Secret History and really enjoyed it. I don’t know why I never finished the Goldfish – It rested by my bed for several years. Anyway I have picked it up now-I had to start from the beginning and so far 160 pages- it all seems familiar but not so that I can remember what happens next. It’s good.
