March reads (and the journey of a book)

Chicken Soup for every Moms Soul- Various

The Baby Diaries- Tess Daly

Noah's Compass- Anne Tyler- unfinished as it had to go back to the library! Will get it out again though as quite liked what I had read.

Rebecca- Daphne du Maurier- my best read of the month!

Rebecca was for my book group, and I absolutely loved it, it is a book that I am going to keep and there aren't many of those these days. I have had this book for a good few years just waiting to be read and one of the things I love about it is its journey. My friend Sarah passed it on to me, and she in turn got it from our friend Mark- so I know at least two other people who read the exact same copy as me-Do you remember where you got it from Sparks?!. At some point it has come from a charity shop, and it has a label on the back with the price. As much as I love new books, I love knowing that I am reading a book that others have read, it feels like it has lived.

February Reads

The Lost Symbol- Dan Brown Enjoyed it, and perfect for what I need, nothing heavy. Same formula as all the others of his!

The To Do List- Mike Gayle Good fun book about a guy aiming to complete his 1,277 item long to do list

How I lived a year on just a pound a day- Kath Kelly Not as good as I had hoped re:tips, but it was an interesting read.

Good Times- Justin Lee Collins Quite fancied this as find him quite funny and he is from Bristol, so not far from my neck of teh woods. Not overly impressed though.

The Time of my LIfe- Patrick Swayze and Lisa Niemi This is really touching, a proper love story. So heartbreaking to think of how awful it must be to lose a partner._________________
