So we are the end of the first week in January and I'm already on my 3rd book of 2012! Ok, I did technically begin 'The Long Song' by Andrea Levy in 2011, but I'm still counting this as a 2012 read.
This week's 'snippet' is taken from Penny Vincenzi's novel 'Something Dangerous'. If I'm honest, I'm not really enjoying this novel at the moment. However as I am only on page 26, I will perceive with this novel, until I have reached 100 pages at least . Then I will decide whether to ditch this or not. What is your policy on continuing books that you are not enjoying? Do you plough on until the end? Do you change books straight away, or wait until you have read a certain amount of pages before deciding?
Here's the snippet:
Page 16- 'The twins unwrapped their parcels, drawing silver cigarette cases out of Asprey packaging with cries of 'Oh, how lovely' and 'Utter bliss' and 'Sebastian, you shouldn't have' and 'As if we'd change these.'
'Something Dangerous' by Penny Vincenzi
Whatever you're doing, enjoy the rest of the weekend. I have a slight dilemma later on this evening. Two programmes I really enjoy, 'Dancing on Ice' and 'Sherlock' (a programme I could easily become obsessed with) are on at the same time. So which one do I watch!?
