ghostwritten and the mysteries of udolpho

I started David Mitchells’ Ghostwritten a few days ago. I was a bit worried that it would disappoint me. The last hyped book I’ve read was Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch, which I detested while everyone else seemed to love it. Everybody loves David Mitchel, and in this case I can see why! I’ve only read about 50 pages so far, but I love it! I want to lock myself into a tiny room and throw away the key and just read and read. It’s so bloody good I want to marry it and have its book-babies.

I’m listening to Ann Radcliffe’s The Mysteries of Udolpho on audio. It’s been a month and a half since I started it and I’ve still got 7 hours left! It’s quite good, but I’ve had enough of fainting damsels in distress by now. I’m ready to move on – but I still think I’ll actually miss it when it’s over. When you take this long to finish a book, it becomes part of your life and it’s always a bit sad to see it go.

As always, I’m hopelessly behind on my book reviews. I have three finished books waiting to be reviewed: The new Shopaholic, David Moody’s Them or Us and Maren Uthaug‘s new book which Lindhardt & Ringhof were kind enough to send to me. I want to review them while I still remember the details, but book reviews are not to be rushed, they take time and contemplation.

What about you, what are you currently reading?

  1. Lige nu er jeg i gang med Sophie Kinsella’s Remember Me.
    Jeg når aldrig at skrive egentlige anmeldelser af det jeg læser – desværre. Derimod elsker jeg at læse andres (blandt andet dine) anmeldelser, og jeg skal i morgen forsøge om jeg kan få fat i Gigi and the Cat 😉

    1. Jeg var ret begejstret for ‘Remember Me’ – grinte især da hun læser blade og finder ud af det med Brad Pitt og Angelina 😀

      Jeg håber, at Gigi & The Cat bringer glæde! Jeg har netop bestilt Colettes ‘Claudine in School’

  2. Åh, jeg vil så gerne læse mere af David Mitchell. “Ghostwritten” lyder fantastisk.

    Jeg er ved at læse de sidste 100 sider af “The Shadow of the Wind” af Carlos Ruiz Zafón. Den har fuldstændig overtaget mit hjerte. Den er ubærligt god.

    1. Jeg prøvede The Shadow of the Wind for et par år siden men kom ikke så langt. Havde lige læst en anden bog som havde et setting, der mindede meget om denne (dreng, hvis mor er død, forsvinder i bøgernes verden), men som virkede meget mere ægte for mig. The Shadow of the Wind fik nok aldrig den chance den burde have haft … Må prøve igen en dag …

      Her er mine tanker om den fra 2012: The Shadow of the wind
