So I gave up on Catch 22.
It won’t be forever, though… and I made a deal with the friend who lent me my next read (and the topic of today’s post) that when she’s read Pride & Prejudice (I was honestly flabberghasted that she hasn’t!) I will finish Catch 22. So.
In the meantime, I did a complete re-read of Harry Potter (I basically spent two days on the couch in my pjs, reading and spooning the neighbour’s cat. It was heaven.), took a break from recreational reading to study for an interview, and got lent today’s topic – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
Things I didn’t know before I read this:
- It’s the first in the series. You will put it down wanting to know what happens next.
- The photographs are all found photos. There’s a bunch about it at the end of the book, but essentially the author went through literally thousands of pictures donated from collectors and found himself. It’s really creepy-cool!
I’m looking forward to seeing the movie and to reading the rest of the books.
