What I am currently reading

One Day in Winter by Shari Low

This is a new author for me and I got the book for free on Apple books. I’m only two chapters in but so far it seems to be going ok.

A Very Murderous Christmas by various authors

I have read six stories so far and so far absolutely loving the book!

 

What I finished reading recently

 

Venus and Adonis by William Shakespeare

I finished this on Monday and sadly I found it a really disappointing read and I feel like a bad person for saying it because it is by William Shakespeare!

The Janus Stone by Elly Griffiths

I loved this book so much, it kept me hooked from beginning to end. I highly recommend it.

 

What I plan on reading next

Mid Week Quote: Eleanor Roosevelt

Happy Wednesday!

We are half way through the week and I have finally finished the first part of my first assignment, second part is in on the 28th November so fingers crossed it all goes well. However, this does mean I am not reading as much as I would like.

The chosen quote today is by Eleanor Roosevelt who was the First Lady of the United States for twelve years. She was well known for championing the rights of minorities, youth, women and the poor.

 

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

Eleanor Roosevelt (1960)

 

Happy reading.

As some of you may know I do love books by Elly Griffiths and this is no exception, I am racing through this book.

Venus and Adonis by William Shakespeare

I’ve set myself the challenge to read more Shakespeare, as I have only read his work that I had to at school, so far this is proving to be an interesting if slightly long winded read.

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood

9781784742324

Really enjoyed this and could not put it down. Fantastic read.

The House with a Clock in its Walls by John Bellairs

9781848127715

Another great read, that I polished off in a few hours.

 

What I think I will read next:-

This is always a tricky question for me as I generally always change my mind, so apologies if I don’t stick with my first choices.

Miss Marley by Vanessa Lafaye

Mid Week Quote: Dana

Hello everyone!

Well this week I am back to teaching and half term already seems like it was ages ago. Due to this I have gone for an education quote for this week’s quote. This quote I completely agree with and try to always be improving my own skills and learning new things.

 

“Who dares to teach must never cease to learn.”

 

John Cotton Dana (1912)

 

Happy reading

Mid Week Quote: Thomas Edison

Hello my fellow readers!

I am very excited because tonight I am off to the theatre for a lovely meal, some cocktails and of course a play. The play is called Pride and Prejudice (Sort of). Apparently it is from the point of view of the servants, which should be interesting.

Anyway, here is my chosen quote for the week. This weeks quote is by Thomas Edison who was an American inventor who in his lifetime invented over 1000 devices.

 

“I haven’t failed, I’ve found ten thousand ways that don’t work.”

 

Thomas Edison (Pre-1910)

Mid Week Quote: Ben Jonson

Hello my fellow Book Dragons!

I hope this post finds everyone well and enjoying some good books.

This weeks quote is by Ben Jonson who was a rival playwright of Shakespeare. During their lifetime Jonson and Shakespeare were both popular and there is evidence to support that Jonson’s plays got more people watching than Shakespeares. However, history has favoured Shakespeare and today Jonson’s plays are rarely performed.

 

“Shakespeare is not of an age, but for all time!”

 

Ben Jonson (1623)

 

Happy reading!

Mid Week Quote: Pliny (the younger)

Today’s quote is one I have read several times whilst doing my Masters work and I rather love it so I thought I would share it with you all. I must admit I always do try to see some good in books even if they are not my cup of tea.

 

“[Pliny the Elder] used to say that “no book was so bad but some good might be got out of it.”

Pliny the Younger

Happy Reading
