March 2012 Reading Round-Up

This few book thing is likely to be repeated until summer…

All books are works of fiction.

The Books

Book cover

Asko Sahlberg: The Brothers – Two siblings return home after fighting on opposite sides of the war, but there are even greater tensions about than theirs. Brilliant.

Book cover

Jodie Griffin: Forbidden Fantasies – After 15 years of marriage Jess has discovered the desire to spice up her and her husband’s sex life. Good as an introduction to erotic romance.

Two novellas read, although I have almost finished Great Expectations and am halfway through another book. The Sahlberg yet again proved that Peirene Press are a treasure of a publisher, and intrigued me about Finnish literature. As with the previous year, it’s likely that Peirene’s books will be a major contender for my top five. The Griffin was a good choice for my venture into romance as I really wanted to push my limits, but a lot of books are a no go. The faithful nature of it kept it just within my comfort level while ensuring I experienced quite the difference.

Quotation Report

None this time.

I’m aware I’ve lost pretty much everyone since I stopped posting regularly, but of course I cannot put blogging before studying just right now and so that will simply have to be the way it is.
