Well, I am back to the blog after a little hiatus while on holiday in Spain. I have been incredibly busy lazing around on the beach, eating copious amounts of tapas and working hard on my tan (I'm delighted to have turned all the way from alabaster to pale beige) but not to worry, I managed to squeeze a fair bit of reading into my tight schedule so there will be some reviews coming up soon.
I just wanted to quickly mention the progress that I have made with Murakami's 1Q84 trilogy - you may remember from my last post that I was planning to tackle each book in turn and post mini-reviews as I went along. Well, having finished Book Two before I went away, I have decided to abandon that initial plan. It's just too difficult to write anything worthwhile about Book Two in isolation without revealing spoilers for Book One! But of course when I've finished the trilogy I will do a proper post with an overview of my thoughts (I warn you now, it may well just end up being a disorganised ramble of gushing praise, as I have completely adored the first two novels).
