January reading

So after almost one year of recording my reading habits, its already quite interesting to look back and see what kind of things I’m reading. I can’t wait until I have some more months to compare this with, to see whether I’m preferring certain genres/authors, or reading a lot at different periods of my life. It’s also a way for me to remember what I’ve read, and which books were great, and which are best avoided.

The Stone Gods was the last book I read, and it was really enjoyable, regardless of having read it before. It makes you think long after you put it down, and the different stories weave together in a beautiful way. It highlights the terrible sides of humanity but also makes you realise how full of hope we are to keep trying, to keep making those same mistakes, keep creating and destroying in an endless cycle.

As for the book club, I couldn’t find the book in time for the meeting, which is a shame. More because I still want to read it. I might pop in and see what the next book is because I feel it’s still something I should try.

Book to film news:
Hunger Games is out at the end of March. Oh my, that’s barely two months away, I thought I would have to contain my excitement until the summer at least.
Warm bodies is coming out in August. I’m very excited and very sceptical all at the same time, which is pretty much my standard reaction to the news that adaptions of my favourite books are coming out, but especially this one because I’m not sure how it will translate to the screen. The best parts of the story take part inside the central character’s head, which starts as a foggy mess of consciousness- will this just all be voiceover narration? I have my doubts.
