Never Let Me Go (unfortunately with a movie based cover) seems to be a blogger favorite and thus far I am loving it. I only read the first few pages of Seraphina last night, after seeing several bloggers raving about it. I had the Netgalley copy of it waiting to be read for some time, and I cannot wait to dive in properly.
The TBR pile is teasing me and distracting me from other reading plans. It keeps whispering that there is a whole library at home, so why go out and buy or loan other books? But it is so hard to resist! One of these days I need a proper resolution for the mountains of TBR books.
Music: The Veils (my all-time-favourite, you-have-to-listen-to-this, or-better-yet-go-see-them-live, band) has released their new album "Time Stays, We Go". It is as good, perhaps even better, than their previous three.
Other: Life is incredibly busy lately, which means that I cannot be on the internet as regularly as I'd like. Apologies if your comment and/or email has not received a prompt reply: I aim to catch up soon.
