In response to his reappearance, Dumbledore reactivates the Order of the Phoenix, a secret society which works to defeat the Dark Lord's minions and protect his targets—especially Harry Potter. But Ha...

This week I read Milk! A 10,000 Year Food Fracas by Mark Kurlansky. Famous for his books Cod and Salt, this was my first book by him. Unfortunately it wasn't for me - I give it 2.5/5. Too many recipes and far too much on the ancient history of milk consumption - I would have liked a lot more about 1900 onwards. It also finished really abruptly.
To lighten the reading load I picked up Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling again. Harry is far too angsty in this for it to be a favourite but...I mean it's HP. I'm obviously enjoying the re-read haha.
I'm also around 100 pages into Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I've seen the film about 30 times and I've definitely read the first chapter before, but this is the first time I've ever sat down for a proper read of it. I've been missing out! It's so enjoyable and funny. Looking forward to spending time with these characters for the next couple of days!

This week I finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling again. It's always a comfort rereading HP. Though I turned rather red in the face on the train trying not to cry at the end.
I also read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I absolutely loved this book! I was secretly worried it was going to be dry and boring, but it was actually really funny. Elizabeth's wit and banter was fantastic. I'm so glad I picked this up.
I also finished Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. I personally didn't like it as much as Gone Girl, and I really struggled to understand some of the characters (Ben). However it definitely hooked me and I enjoyed struggling to work out what happened that night alongside Libby.

I've been travelling and sightseeing for the last week and a half, so I've had a lot of time to listen to audiobooks. I started and finished Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, by J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, by J.K. Rowling, both read by Stephen Fry. I love being in the Harry Potter bubble, which is why I've only read about 50 pages of Fool's Quest, by Robin Hobb.

Just started reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, by JK Rowling.
I'd actually started reading this book back in junior high a few years back. I blew through the first four books and really loved them, but never got around to finishing #5, not in small part because of how much of my backpack the ridiculously massive book took up.
Got back into now, on chapter 2,but God I forgot how much I love the prose of this series. It rides such a line between British quaintness and grand fantasy, it really brought me back into the world like I haven't felt since long ago.
Excited to keep on reading, Nad hopefully go on to finish the series!

Fiiiiinally I finished The Way of Kings, by Brandon Sanderson. Everything seems to have happened in about the last six chapters.
Almost done (will finish tonight, I’ve only got a chapter or two left) on Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, by J. K. Rowling
Started The Bronze Horseman, by Paullina Simons. This feels like a fairly extravagant romance novel, which is more or less exactly what I feel like reading.
About to start Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, by J. K. Rowling

This week I finished Iran Awakening, by Shirin Ebadi and a re-read of The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins. Iran Awakening was really interesting. Hunger Games is a perfectly fine young adult book.
