I have almost finished Room after buying it on Wednesday and I have to say it is an utterly compulsive read that has cost me sleep and peace-of-mind since I picked it up. After starting it I wasn't able to relax until I was sure that the characters little Jack and Ma would get out of that godforsaken room and how that happens actually had me shaking with nerves and adrenalin last night! I already know I will be recommending this book heartily although not without one or two reservations... but I will save that for the review I will write sometime next week.
So what to start next? I have created a wish-list (under 'links') if anyone would like to have a look at stuff I plan on reading in the near future and help me decide which to read/review next? Elizabeth Baines has released a new book (see her bookblog here) called Too Many Magpies, not only is the title wonderfully appropriate but the story looks fascinating too. Thoughts please!?
In non-book related news, tomorrow I have my first training session with the London Roller Girls. Im super excited. Wish me...not luck... but as few spills and bruises as possible!
