The next book of the Lunar Chronicles, Fairest.
I took this pic relaxing last Sunday and it was beautiful here in NIโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ“๐ŸŒธ I have really enjoyed the Lunar Chronicles. The romances are a bit naive, they are not overly lustful or sexy and I love them all the more for it. ๐Ÿค—

Have read before and will read again.

Do you ever swap books half way through?! I do it all the time.
I got distracted half way though this and have to go back to it soon. #themaninthehighcastle by #philipkdick is a great read don't be put off by me flitting.
Alternative history novels are quite popular at the moment but I think this has to be one of the best.

#doctorwho is a popular topic at the moment. With a lot of discussion about whether a female Doctor should be cast #13thdoctor ... I am posting my favourite Doctor, the 11th and wonderful Matt Smith.
I have still not actually got round to reading this book even though I love #benaaronovitch (check out the #riversoflondon series, brilliant!) And while I don't want to start a discussion about the male/female Doctor issue, I think it's great. Hope she gets strong stories to go with it.

IT'S THE WEEKEND!! and a long week it has been.
I am still fully reliant of fiction to get me through the 'real' life of weekdays.
Also still loving this series. A real guilty pleasure for me.

The whole book ban suffered a set back today...

The next of the #LunarChronicles, #Cress.
@geniebooks is a little surprised by how gripped I am by the series. I am choosing to enjoy it and not to analyse too much.

Some days seem to be made just for reading. ๐Ÿ˜€

The 2nd book of #Marissameyer 's #lunarchronicles.
They are strangely readable and I am honestly not sure why. They are a quick read and not badly written. They avoid the over angst and too passionate love/lust that other authors fall into (why ACOTAR just makes me roll my eyes)
But there must be more to that this!? Possibly it's that I am just too tired to face anything heavy.
But yeah. Enjoying the series so far! (and happily surprised)

Multitudes by Lucy Caldwell.
Just finished. A very accomplished collection of short stories.
Her memories of Belfast in the 90s. (I moved here in 2000.) Rings true, it is something I have wanted to see written for a long time... A book about Belfast that is not about the 'Troubles' as though that is our only identity.
The stories are harsh and somewhat unflinching, but they are coming of age stories. Those awful, wonderful formative years.
