What I’ve Read – November 2016

I have to admit it’s been a quiet month for reading. I just haven’t had the time. In November I priotised sleep and being organised over reading and I also decided to tackle a book that required more attention and I couldn’t just rush through it.

Gin Glorious Gin: How Mother’s Ruin Became the Spirit of London – Olivia Williams (TBR pile)

Finally a book from the physical TBR pile. I’ve had this since last Christmas (it was my secret santa gift) and it was fun. Easy to read, interesting and showing a pretty good knowledge of it’s subject.

Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer – Rick Riordan (library book)

Luc and Josh and I all decided that you’re never too grown up to read children’s books and we’re reading it together. I like the way that it links into the Percy Jackson books with a cameo from Annabeth and I like the Norse Gods because they are much more earthy than the Greek and Roman Gods. It’s funny the conversation at the top of the book about why use C.E dates not A.D (that works for Christians but Thor is touchy since Jesus didn’t show up to the dual he was challenged to) made me laugh out loud on the bus!

The Plantagenets: The Kings Who Made England – Dan Jones (TBR pile)

This is fun, I haven’t finished yet. I’m always reluctant to describe a history book as a romp but that’s pretty much what it is.
