I thought I’d start a regular post to share what I’m currently reading and watching, as I’m always interested in other people’s posts about what they’re enjoying book-wise and on TV.
This week’s book is Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen.
I’m almost halfway through and sadly I’m not enjoying it very much. Although it’s an easy read, I’m finding it very flat and I can’t really get a handle on any of the characters. I loved the film, which I saw at the cinema last year, so this may be clouding my view.
Prisoners of War is the Israeli TV series that the very popular recent US series Homeland was based on. Having really enjoyed Homeland, I thought I’d give this one a try when it started on Sky Arts recently, despite the fact I usually steer well clear of anything with subtitles, and I’m liking it more than I anticipated. I’ve only watched two episodes so far, however, and it does seem a little bit slow, so I’ll see how I get on.
What are you reading and watching at the moment? Anything good?
