What I’m Currently Reading ~ May ~ Part One

The Knife of Never Letting Go feature1


the knife of never letting go by patrick ness

I was so excited to write this post for you as I am extremely into my two ‘May reads’ at the moment. I’ve separated this post into two parts (the second will follow on Sunday) and when you see the books I think you’ll agree that they needed to be showcased in a blog post of their very own. Two very different books but oh, so good!

The first title is a fiction book and one that I was very glad to indulge in over the warm and sunny bank holiday weekend. Recommended to me by a friend and on Mr D-Fs list to read as soon as I’ve finished is: The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness 

If I say that this book is set in a dystopian future, I don’t feel like I’m doing it justice. Many of you might leap in the air shouting, ‘Whoohoo – that sounds like the book for me!’ While others might be put off by the mere thought of it. I promise it isn’t overly sci-fi at all, it could just as well be set in another country or in another time and the setting is so gently woven into the story.

The story itself is based all around some central, wonderful characters.  The book is heartwarming, heart-wrenching and a wonderful read. Thank goodness it’s the first in a trilogy and I can indulge myself further. Argh! I don’t want to give too much away and if I say almost anything then I might spoil it for you. The best advice from me is this: hop on over to Amazon or wherever and read the proper blurb. Go on, you’ll love it. Plus, there is an adorable dog in the story and he’s my favourite.

Let me know how you get on. H x

    1. Hello Philip, thank you for your comment. Oh absolutely! I have some favourite bookshops that I adore visiting. However, sometimes (especially when living somewhere very rural) a quick moment on Amazon to read a blurb or a review can save you a long trip into town! 😀 Do you have a favourite bookshop that you can recommend that’s worth a visit?

  1. My two favourite independents are the Totnes Bookshop and the Bridport Bookshop. Both have a good range and knowledgeable staff. I believe near you there is a good independent in Sherborne?
