Sometimes we go to the library

Tuesday, May 10, 2016
It's true, we do. Sometimes we go to the library! As a book hoarder this isn't an easy thing for me, I don't much like giving the books back.

Last time we were there I picked up Broken Homes, by Ben Aaronovitch. I almost didn't because I could see it was one of a series, and I was pretty sure it wasn't the first. Normally I'd go and ask if they had the first in the series, or could find one for me, or I'd just wait and buy it on Kindle, but it looked good and I didn't want to forget about it. Small country libraries can take some time to get books in.


It ended up being the fourth book. Really fantastically good, and surprisingly not my usual fluff. It can be a little dark, I think the slightly off beat nature eases that though, so it's something I can handle reading without having nightmares or getting too upset! I'm such a wimp.

Well I rushed ahead and just bought the rest of the series on my Kindle, which I am kicking myself over really. I loved reading them, it would have been good to have them on the shelf. But I was too impatient! Maybe I'll find them in second hand bookshops. There is a sixth one coming out soon, which I can't wait for. I even bought my mum the first in the series for Mother's Day. I hope she likes it.

I know this is quite a departure from stuff I've been making, but I was pretty much just reading these books for about two weeks in all my spare time! Have you already read them???

  1. I haven't read them. I haven't actually heard of them but I will see if I can them from my library. I love a good book.
