I'm reading Wolf Hall too, what a wonderful writer Hilary Mantel is. I am well and truly hooked.

I've almost finished "The Vanishing Box" by Ellie Griffiths. Next one on my list is "The Thursday Murder Club" by Richard Osman.

I'm reading The Trial by Franz Kafka. Had to wait for an English translation before I could fill a gap.

Love his books, started off with Metamorphosis in my teens and read them all in short order. The Trial is my favourite.

Followed his books up with Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn for some inexplicable reason, I must have been going through a depressed period because I followed this up with Gunter Grass.

Kudos! That's not exactly light reading all of which I haven't done.

Re: What book are you reading now?

Tim Weaver "No One Home". A group of houses and a farm in a lonely valley, all the residents and their vehicles have disappeared completely overnight. No strange tyre prints, no sign of violence, all neighbours were very good friends. No mobile phone activity, no money drawn from any accounts .. cue spooky music .........

I certainly don't hate reading new authors. What annoys me is reading the synopsis and still not finding out the plot as it's full of waffle and reference previous books. So irritating. If you always stick to familiar authors you miss a lot.

I like Ellie Griffiths, books but haven't yet read Vanishing Box. The Thursday Murder Club is good.

I gave up on The Thursday Murder Club after 3 chapters. I thought it was really silly.

Now I'm 2/3rds the way through The Law Of Innocence by Michael Connelly.
