This week’s Musing Mondays, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading:
What’s the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn’t put it down?
I normally struggle to get my 8 hours’ sleep anyway, between working too hard and cycling to work (about 1 hour each way but I have to have breakfast twice), but The Seamstress by Frances de Pontes Peebles kept me up until well past 1am a few months ago. Between the exciting plot (a troupe of bandits led by a tall angry woman/high society being revolutionised by a country girl – oh and both are in Brazil) and the great characters, I just didn’t want to put it down! I said as much in my review.
Given the number of great books I have read this year, this demonstrates two things:
1) I don’t read before bed enough
2) I need my sleep.
