April was pretty much slow in all things bookish. Apart from buying only 2 books, I read only one book, Death with Interruptions by Jose Saramago, which I very much enjoyed.
While reading Middlemarch, I had read something about Daniel Deronda, so decided to get a copy. I will probably read it soon, or at least, sometime during the year. Station Eleven I’ve been seeing in most “Best of 2014” lists, but as of now, I have no urge to read it. I think it is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi novel of sorts – please correct me if I’m wrong.
Right now I’m reading Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy. I think I’m about halfway through the novel, and I’m finding it intriguing. Earlier in the novel, I was quite ready to give up on it because I found some parts boring. I’m glad I stuck with it though, because now I can’t wait to see what happens Bathsheba Everdene and her suitors.
Here’s hoping that May brings more books and better reads 🙂
