You may (… or may not) have noticed that I’ve been gone for quite a while! It has been a weird and yet wonderful summer; some dramatic moments coupled with some life-affirming moments, which then resulted in plenty of happy moments. Between working and living, I haven’t managed to find much time for reading of late, and it’s been a couple of months since my last review. While perpetual reading is good book-blogging etiquette, I needed the break.
So, with summer over (at least here in Scotland) I’m making my return with the promise of some future reviews. Despite having a myriad of unread books on my shelf, I though I’d get back into the swing of things by treating myself to two newbies:
I read Slaughterhouse 5 a few months back, at a time in my life where I could take much meaning from it. As such, it has catapulted to the top of my most favourite books (right below Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying, which holds tight at number one). It is (very) slowly forming the basis for my next tattoo. I hope my high hopes for Breakfast of Champions aren’t dashed.
So, apparently practically everyone has read this – well, not me. But, with the recent release of the feature film version featuring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, and with a little gentle persuasion from Twitter pal @kirsty44SUNSETS, I thought I’d give it a bash! I don’t particularly know much about the plot (criminal?) and the movie trailer looks pretty slushy, but it will make for a good ol’ book versus movie review, in any case…
So, to those reading this, thanks for hanging around! Let’s get Little Interpretations back on track
