About two weeks ago, I saw the trailer for the new BFG film that's coming out next summer and I decided to pick up the book by Roald Dahl it is based on. I hadn't read it since I was a very little girl, so I remembered little of the story. It follows a little girl who is taken from her home by a giant, but it turns out that this big man is actually friendly, whereas all other giants are evil and eat children. I'm just reading a few pages every night, so it's taking me a while to get through, but it's really fun.
I'm also reading a Dutch book, Het jaar dat ik 30 werd (the year I turned 30), by Aaf Brandt Corstius, which is just a sort of chicklit kind of book about a thirty-year-old woman. I'm really enjoying this simple little book.
What are you reading? Are you also trying to fit in a few short and easy books before the year ends?
