This week in books is a weekly meme hosted by Lipsyy Lost & Found. It asks what you’ve just finished, what you’re reading now, and what’s up next.
The last book I read was Whispers Under Ground by Ben Aaronovitch, number 3 in the Peter Grant series, and Dracula by Bram Stoker. Whispers Under Ground was enjoyable esapism, consistent with the previous books in the series. Dracula I read before, but listening to the audiobook has converted me to the medium.
I’m currently reading The Mill on the Floss by George Elliot. I haven’t had much time to get into this but so far what I’ve read I’ve enjoyed. The portrayal of the sibling relationship, and general family dynamics are excellent.
Decisions, decisions. What to read next? It will likely be my bookclub selection, which is An Officer and a Spy by Robert Harris, though before starting into it I may read my first of my Irish reads as part of Reading Ireland, The Poor Mouth by Flann O’Brien.
