Currently Reading

Tanya … I just finished my first 2 books of the #BigBookSummerReadingChallenge – both audiobooks – MacBeth, Jo Nesbo (liked but didn’t love) and Us Against You, Frederik Bachman (love, love, love).

I’m currently on another audiobook – Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Gail Honeyman. I’m only a few chapters in and I’m already hooked by this quirky character.
