Currently Reading #3

Recently Read

In last week's post I mentioned taking Harry Potter on my travels with me in order to have a book to read but not a plot that needed in depth attention... Well, it turns out that I didn't do as much reading as I anticipated whilst away. I'm not fussed about that though, and my HP reread continues, but the books are taking a back seat once again.

Despite not reading much on our break, I have read a book since being back - Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider. I'll be sharing my full thoughts on this book in the near future, but in short, I'd recommend to fans of YA.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Sussex, England. A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock, and her mother and grandmother. He hasn't thought of Lettie in decades, and yet as he sits by the pond (a pond that she'd claimed was an ocean) behind the ramshackle old farmhouse, the unremembered past comes flooding back. And it is a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to have happened to anyone, let alone a small boy.

Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper and resonated in unimaginable ways. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie—magical, comforting, wise beyond her years—promised to protect him, no matter what.

I don't have a picture to share of my current read as the weather has been pretty gloomy and so didn't exactly make for good lighting... I have literally just started this book though so I haven't really formed any opinions as of yet.

Up Next

If I'm not fed up with fantasy/dystopian novels after my current read then I'll be moving on to The Maze Runner series next. I only own the trilogy, as I don't tend to enjoy prequels but I'll see how I feel about that by the end of the trilogy.
