This Week in Books 22.08.18

This Week in Books 22.08.18 #TWIB

This Week in Books is a feature hosted by Lipsy at Lipsyy Lost and Found that features  bloggers who share:
  • What they’ve recently finished reading
  • What they are currently reading
  • What they are planning to read next

NOW: I’ve just started Nabokov's favourite word is Mauve which is a book on trawling through the texts of massive numbers of books to see whether writers actually follow the advice they dish out - you know, like 'don't use "-ly" words', 'show don't tell', 'use more nouns and verbs than adjectives and adverbs', and so on. So far it's fascinating.
THEN: The last book I finished was Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow.  I loved this tome featuring the least prominent of the founding fathers (according to Eliza and Mr Bryce). My review is up, in case you're interested.

NEXT: I'm keen to start The Weight of Ink by Rachel Kadish. My husband has just finished this book and rated it 5 stars, and it sounds fantastic.

Leave me a comment with what you're reading and I'll visit your blog.
