LIST: Books to read

I’ve recently finished Thumped, sequel to Bumped, by Megan McCafferty, The Pendragon Legend, by Antal Szerb (thanks to Chris at calmgrove for that recommendation!), and Jasper Fforde’s third in the Last Dragonslayer series, The Eye of Zoltar, all of which I’ve enjoyed tremendously. Reviews will be written up after Easter, so sorry for the delay!

I’ve currently got on the go Oliver VII, also by Szerb, and Selected Poems by Louis MacNeice. To start is Flight Behaviour, by Barbara Kingsolver, a recommendation by Firefly back in August last year.

We’re going away for Easter to north Wales, and I’m wondering how many of Susan Cooper’s The Grey King and Silver on the Tree related locations we can visit in two and a bit days! Cader Idris (which actually looms large in The Eye of Zoltar, too), or the Bearded Lake, maybe (no afanc, I hope!). We’ll see.

    Pasg Hapus, and enjoy your literary break! Thanks for mention too!

  2. Wales, Wales, have a good time in Wales! I’ve never been but always intended to, though I never read Susan Cooper and haven’t got any Cooper-related destinations to remember to visit.

      We didn’t see all that many Cooper-related places, since we were staying a bit further north, but I did squee silently on driving past Cadair Idris on our way to Machynlleth yesterday. It was all very clear, with no “breath of the Brenin Llwyd” showing.
