To be read

Slowly but surely I'm getting back into a reading rhythm (by which I mean I'm trying to curb my Netflix addiction!), and there are a few books I've got lined up to help. 

Ken Follett, The Pillars of the Earth - As you can probably see by the ragged post-it note bookmark, I first picked this up just over a year ago. While I liked what I managed to read before Mat and I moved it's a very long book and I didn't have the time or energy to pick it up again after that! I only got about 80 pages in before so I'll be making a conscious effort to get it finished. The story is looking to be a good one even though it's not my usual genre of choice.

Emma Healey, Elizabeth is Missing - This has been on my radar since it graced every shortlist possible last year! Again this isn't my usual kind of novel, but something about the story appeals to me.

Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane - Is it wrong to pick up a book purely because of the title? I've heard so many good things about Gaiman's storytelling, not least thanks to the popularity of his comics and graphic novels, but this was the book that convinced me to try his stuff. From what I can see there's quite a darkness to Gaiman's stuff and I can't think of anything more up my street.

I'll be reporting back on these over the next month or two so stay tuned! What have you got lined up to read this summer?
