Happy Friday, all!
Do you ever have those weeks where you just can’t settle to a book? I started the week with an Agatha Christie anthology, Midwinter Murder, which suited my lack of attention span perfectly since the stories were short enough to read one by one in little snippets, and included a few Poirots and a Marple, among others.
After that, I drifted from book to book, starting and stopping and feeling thoroughly disgruntled, until deciding that maybe I needed something entirely new and different. I’d loved Maureen Johnson’s Truly Devious series, so I just picked up The Name of the Star, the first in one of her earlier series, Shades of London. So far, it’s reading like Truly Devious crossed with Rivers of London. Fingers crossed it will be a slump-breaker!
What have you been reading this week? And what have been your most successful slump-breakers?
