October just flew by this year and here it is November already. As the days grow shorter and darker, I spend more time reading and listening to audiobooks while doing winter knitting projects. Right now I am reading a number of different things. My current library book is Wild Seed, by Octavia Butler. This is my first time reading her work and I’ve found that I really like her writing. My current Audible listen is J.K. Rowling’s The Silkworm. My current Kindle book is Rules For a Successful Book Club (The Book Lovers, #2), by Victoria Connelly. And a friend loaned me another Kindle book to add to my annual holiday reading project. It’s called A Cornish Christmas, by Lily Graham. There’s no shortage of books to light up these shorter darkening days!
I love audio books and enjoyed The Silkworm (and The Cuckoo’s Calling), but haven’t listened to the most recent installment in the series. I wrote this on my blog back in Feb. 2015:
This is a wonderful series, especially on audio. The pacing is taut, the plot full of twists & turns, and Robert Glenister proves, once again, to be an excellent reader. Unlike other male readers, I’m never annoyed with his female characterizations. As with The Cuckoo’s Calling (the first in this series), I was more interested in the character development and not quite as engrossed in the actual mystery. I’m eager to see what’s in store for Cormoran and Robin and hope I don’t have to wait too long!
This time of year is definitely the time of hibernating inside with a book!
Les, I feel the same way about this series. I didn’t know what to expect and put off reading it for a long time, but the audiobooks are wonderful and I’m completely caught by them!
Kelly, I agree: “hibernating inside with a book” is heavenly when it’s so dark and (soon to be) cold outside!
