I’ve had a ridiculously busy week and very little sleep so I’ve not picked a book up to read since the weekend. I am, however, listening to Noah’s Gold to and from my drive to work. Wow! Firstly, I absolutely LOVE the narration – it’s just so lovely to listen to an Irish accent – taking me home! And I hadn’t realised this was set in Northern Ireland – so lovely to hear places which are familiar to me mentioned in a story. And then, there’s the story! Noah is so incredibly likeable. This is such a feel good, wonderfully funny story and is exactly what I need now.
I finished listening to the audiobook of The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy which is surreal and genuinely brilliant. I absolutely loved this which would have made me throw my arms in the air a lot (if I hadn’t been driving!) and had me both giggling and confused! I think I definitely need to had to The Restaurant at the End of the Universe. I also read The Dragon in the Bookshop which I really enjoyed – I will be posting my review as part of the Blog Tour soon. Finally, I read something from my towering bookcases. The Last Firefox is a gorgeous story suited to younger readers which has some wonderful messages about finding inner strength and self-belief. The main character, Charlie, has two dads: I loved this representation of family which is so great to see in stories for younger readers.
This might be ambitious, but I’m hoping to have both of these read by next Wednesday!
What are you reading? Have you read any of these?
