What are you reading right now?

Don't you find it annoying though when you go to sleep in the middle of a chapter and then have to find where you were up to the next day?
Nope, that's why I generally pick books I'm not fussed about paying attention to. Which is why I often pick those I've read before. Though I was actually keen on Geena's story so I'd listen to that, it'd turn off after 15 mins then I'd sleep.

"The Dictionary of Lost Words", Pip Williams.
It has been languishing in my To Read pile for way too long.
It should have risen to the top earlier. :)
Such a good story! I'm keen to read the next book, I think it's the Bookbinder of Jericho?

Yes. On my TBR list, too. :)

I've finished the Last Quarrel, now on to the next one, the Bloody Quarrel. It was an enjoyable read. It got a bit predictable towards the end, so that I anticipated the 'big twist' when it happened.
 
NOT reading anymore. Very sad day - one bookshelf has to be cleaned out a bit to make way for new history books.

The victims are mostly my geology text books from Uni, 40 years ago. 😢😭 Vale my good friends Turner, Carmichael & Verhoogan Igneous Petrology; Moore Lalicker & Fisher Invertebrate Fossils and the old foe Bloss on Crystallography and about 1/2 m more. I kept using them off and on in my professional career.
 
Just finished "Six Four" by Hideo Yokoyama -:
Entertaining procedural police drama/thriller. Conceptually a bit different to many others I've read as it focused more on the machinations of the Japanese Police Force and its bureaucracy, with the crime - whilst critical to the narrative - almost acting as the secondary plot. Definitely recommended. I felt there were parallels with Michael Connelly in that Yokoyama was an investigative reporter who turned his hand to writing fiction and leveraged the knowledge and experience gained during his former profession to add authenticity to the narrative.

Now moving onto the second of Yokoyama's books to have been translated into English -:

I have finished The Bloody Quarrel and the final one in the trilogy the Poisoned Quarrel. It was a bit of a slog in the final book, but I'm done now. Overall I'd give the trilogy a 3/5. It was very 'blokey' in that it was full of gory battle descriptions and quite violent.

I'm currently in between books, but I have Dracula lined up next. I picked up a pretty copy when I was in the states last year. Lovely red cover with some illustrations and black edging on the pages. It's one of my favourites, I like stories told via diary entries and letters, so Dracula captured me when I first read it years ago.
 
Getting back into reading to try and calm my ever anxious brain.

Just about to start The Bookbinder of Jericho. If it's even half as good as The Dictionary of Lost Words it will be excellent.

I'm also halfway through this too, forgot to mention it because it's an e-book and not front of mind like my physical books. I'm really enjoying it! But I also liked The Dictionary of Lost Words too. So I think you will like it if you liked Dictionary as well.
 
I've finished Dracula, I took a photo of the pretty copy I bought last year.

I've got the Gary Oldman Dracula movie lined up to watch, as well as Dracula Dead and Loving it with Leslie Nielsen.

But for the next book, Dracula's Guest by Bram Stoker. I've not read it before, but I believe it's a collection of short stories set in the world of Dracula.

A really lovely duo.
I’m gearing up for the Stella Prize list next.
