Reading Lists 4 + 5 + 6

The inspiration for Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch

Yeah, that title says it all. I've been reading a lot and not finding time to write about it! As this is an overdue catch up I'll just keep it short and sweet. Some good books here...the first three quarters of The Goldfinch being the stand-out for the sheer beauty and brilliance of the writing. Had been meaning to read Slaughterhouse Five for years and really pleased I did. The Husband's Secret was a proper page-turner and I really enjoyed Life After Life, which I'm happy about as I'd sort of gone off Kate Atkinson. The Zero - a dark, 9/11 themed, mad trip inside a cop's head was hard going but worth it. The rest were decent enough. Sometimes you just need to lose yourself in a story for a little while :)
