With only a few weeks of college left until the summer holidays, I’m already dreaming of days in the sun reading books (and I say this staring out the window as the rain pours down – good old British weather there haha).
And I’m happy to say I’m reading more than usual – I feel like the slump I’ve had lingering over me for about a year now has finally lifted! I finished reading A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard yesterday, and I enjoyed it so much. My review will be up sometime this weekend, so watch for it!
I also have some other good (non-bookish) news: I finished my last exam today – yay! Now I have even more time on my hands to read books, and hopefully to blog, too.
Anyway, on with the reading update!
Here’s what I’m currently reading:
If Birds Fly Back by Carlie Sorosiak
Linny has been living life in black and white since her sister Grace ran away, and she’s scared that Grace might never come back. When Linny witnesses the return to Miami of a cult movie star long presumed dead, she is certain it’s a sign. Surely Álvaro Herrera, of all people, can tell her why people come back – and how to bring her sister home?
Sebastian has come to Miami seeking his father, a man whose name he’s only just learned. An aspiring astrophysicist, he can tell Linny how many galaxies there are, how much plutonium weighs and how likely she is to be struck by a meteorite. But none of the theories he knows are enough to answer his own questions about why his father abandoned him, and why it left him in pieces.
As Sebastian and Linny converge around the mystery of Álvaro’s disappearance – and return – their planets start to collide. Linny’s life is about to become technicolor, but finding the answers to her questions might mean losing everything that matters.
I got some awesome book-mail last week! I saw on Twitter that My Kinda Book had a few ARCs of If Birds Fly Back by Carlie Sorosiak up for grabs, so I asked for one and I’m so happy I’ve received it. I’m super excited to have the opportunity to be reviewing this book before its release; I’ll hopefully be starting it later today!
