N0S4R2 by Joe Hill (453 pages)
Okay, so clearly this read-a-thon is not going well for me. I’ve been spending a lot of time with Charles Dickens, which means that my page count is crawling up ever-so slowly and I’m struggling to want to return to it. Then I started Good Wives – I’m not sure if I was grumpy when I picked this up or whether I should have gone for something lighter when I wanted a Dickens break. Either way, not so much with the reading. Then I picked up N0S4RU, but more on that later.
It also doesn’t help that I’ve spent my week either a) playing with a puppy, b) working in a frantic legal advice centre or c) you know, sleeping. I’ve been so busy and so the second I get home, I just want to drop onto my bed. Hello bed, I love you.
There are so many books I want to be reading (not to mention the amazing presents I’ve received from some of you lovely people!) that I just had to put them aside and pick up something
Enter N0S4R2. Oh my god, this book is amazing. I read 450 pages almost in one sitting, mumbling encouragement to Lewis that he should absolutely continue playing Dead Rising 3 on his Xbox One and no, I supposed I didn’t mind if he ignored me a little longer. Sigh. Life is hard.
Thing is, it looks like a festive book and it does involve Christmas. That said, I do think it would be better if you read it later in the year. I can’t really explain why without being massively spoilery, but trust me that July would be better. On second thought, I do want to talk about it with people, so read it now! 🙂
I will be more updatey from now on, I swear.
