In Pursuit of a More Challenging Read

After taking a while to complete The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson, I was quick to get back into reading. At home, I have a bookcase full of books I need to read. In particular, there’s books on there from Young Adult series I haven’t read for five years or so. Eager to power my way through my to-be-read pile, I picked up The Sacrifice by Charlie Higson – part of The Enemy YA series.

However, with me reading the first three books in the series so long ago, I struggled to remember the plot details and characters from the series. As well as that, I feel as though my reading age and preference has changed since then. Whilst I used to be interested in books about teenage spies (CHERUB) or a group of teenagers surviving a zombie apocalypse, now I am interested in the latest crime fiction novels. For example, I am now reading The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith/J.K. Rowling.

Of course, I could read these YA novels even when I am outside the ‘teenage’ bracket. However, the language is different, and I want something different and more challenging. I look forward to reading more of The Cuckoo’s Calling.
