Such a wonderful read, real classics - wish I had something as good lined up for the weekend!

I'll be travelling on Sunday, and that book is just too big to carry with me so I'll have to find something smaller to take along for the day - vexing as it will break the flow of the story!

I have just started a slim volume which looks promising. Cry, Mother Spain - Lydie Salvayre - won the Prix Goncourt a few years ago. I went to a talk about it a few weeks ago which - though it was in French and I struggled to keep up - made me want to try it.

Excellent!

I have my tottering TBR to choose from. Books I have been saving up for the summer when reading time is a priority. Like a child in a sweet shop it is sometimes hard to choose. This weekend I have started Headlong by Michael Fryan. A book I was aware of for many years but never drawn too until I read a recommendation.

I've just started reading Elena Ferrante's My Brilliant Friend, as I wanted to find out what all the fuss/hype was about. So far, 60 pages in, it's a bit ho-hum, but will persevere, and how I feel about it when I finish will depend on whether I read the other Neapolitan novels she's written.

I know the "child in a sweet shop" feeling!

Cornflower

I haven't read any of her books, but yes, they certainly have been a high profile series.

I am reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (and finding the format a bit irritating). I loved the Elana Ferrante books.
