I always think that the summer makes you want to read more, sitting out in the garden with a good book is one of my favourite things. So with that, I've recently read The Handmaid's Tale and My Dear I Wanted To Tell You, both of which I enjoyed immensely. I've now moved on to The Wasp Factory, having never read anything by Iain Banks before I thought I should. I'm not too far in at the moment, but despite being quite removed from most of the books I usually go for, I'm finding it a really interesting read. At times it's proving to be quite shocking, but the elements of dark humour shine through. After this I might move on to something a bit more cheery.
I'm off on holiday in a few weeks and I've already scoped out a Literary Pub Crawl that takes place there. Needless to say, I'm planning on doing this. The combination of alcohol and literature, as mentioned in my previous post, is just too perfect to miss out on!
In other news, I recently treated myself to my first relatively expensive handbag, well satchel. I picked a colour that would be good all year round, there were so many pretty colours to choose from though, I found it quite hard. If I can justify getting another then I've got my sights set on a light green one.
