Manic Monday: Grimspace by Ann Aguirre & Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

Each Monday (or the closest I can get to Monday) I will be posting a Past/Present/Future Reading Post called Manic Monday. Don't hate me if I post it on a Tuesday - it just indicates how "manic" my Monday really was! If you want to see more of what I have been reading, I try and update my Goodreads account with each book I am reading.

What I just finished reading
I can't remember the last real book I finished reading. I have been flicking back and forth... I am on a book ban, and it is driving me crazy! I read a bunch of my mumma's M&B when I was visiting her last week because I couldn't concentrate on my book for book club.

What I am reading now
Grimspace by Ann Aguirre

Blurb from Goodreads:
As the carrier of a rare gene, Sirantha Jax has the ability to jump ships through grimspace—a talent which makes her a highly prized navigator for the Corp. Then a crash landing kills everyone on board, leaving Jax in a jail cell with no memory of the crash. But her fun's not over. A group of rogue fighters frees her…for a price: her help in overthrowing the established order.

Grimspace was lent by Rosie, and I don't take borrowed books away from my room. When I am not at home I am reading:

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

Blurb from Goodreads:
From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day comes a devastating new novel of innocence, knowledge, and loss. As children Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy were students at Hailsham, an exclusive boarding school secluded in the English countryside. It was a place of mercurial cliques and mysterious rules where teachers were constantly reminding their charges of how special they were.

Now, years later, Kathy is a young woman. Ruth and Tommy have reentered her life. And for the first time she is beginning to look back at their shared past and understand just what it is that makes them special–and how that gift will shape the rest of their time together. Suspenseful, moving, beautifully atmospheric, Never Let Me Go is another classic by the author of The Remains of the Day.

What I am reading next
Rosie (@Fangbooks on Twitter) just lent me a big juicy bag of books! I am spoilt for choices!!! Isn't she lovely!!! :D

Two very different books there, but both good in their own way. Never Let Me Go makes for a good book club discussion.

Great :) I was the one who suggested Never Let Me Go! I am about to do my teaser about it, as it is my lunch time reading and I just got back to the office LOL I am really looking forward to discussing it, even though I am only about 60 pages in so far. It seems really interesting and I haven't read one negative review yet.

I would have just concentrated on Grimspace, but it was lent to me, and I don't take loaners out of the house in case they get damaged - especially with all this rain at the moment! :)
