It’s been a while since I’ve talked about my reading here, I think. So today I’m going to share my current reads and my thoughts so far.
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo: I love reading classics and I’m trying to delve into more of them and a wider range. This story is very popular through its adaptations, as well as the novel itself, but I know very little about it, so I’m going in with little previous knowledge. I’m about 11% of the way into the book and enjoying it a lot. It’s almost made me cry a couple of times, so I can only imagine what the rest of the book will do to me.
The Brothers Karamzov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky: Another classic and a buddy read with another friend of mine. I read Crime and Punishment last year and enjoyed it a lot. Though I do have to admit, I often feel disoriented while reading Dostoyevsky. They are books I think I will have to revisit to truly grasp.
The Light of All That Falls by James Islington: This is the conclusion to the Licanius trilogy and is very good so far. I wish that I remembered more of the details from the previous books in the trilogy, but even without them fresh in my mind, I’m having a lot of fun with this one.
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater: If you know me outside of this blog, this will come as no surprise to you. I adore this book. Not reading it super quickly, as I’m focusing on my previously mentioned reads, but still loving being back in the story.
Sous le Signe du Scorpion by Maggie Stiefvater: Yes, I’m reading this book in French. Very, very slowly. Usually a couple of paragraphs per day. I’m not wonderful with French, but I know enough, and know the story so well, that I can usually figure out what’s going on without referencing the English copy, which I keep beside me as I read. And it’s getting easier!
What are you currently reading? I would love to hear about it!
