What I’ve Been Reading Recently – Amy
I have ventured into the dark side a little during the past few weeks and read my fair share of gothic and bleak fiction. ‘Who Was Changed and Who Was Dead’ was another cracking Barbara Comyns, and I yet to be disappointed by her! ‘Luckenbooth’ and ‘The Dumb House’- both very odd and unsettling reads but by authors who are clearly not afraid to take risks!
To balance out I have also read an abundance of fantasy, which has been a tonic to the darkness. ‘The Broken Raven’- the sequel to ‘The Good Hawk’ which was one of the best YA books I read last year and this second instalment is just as fab. I finally got round to reading ‘The Fifth Season’ which is hands down one of my favourites this year so far, so much that I have also already read the next one!
My current read is on a different note entirely – ‘Breaking and Mending’ by Joanna Cannon which I am enjoying so far.
