I got through six books this month, helped mostly by the fact I had an extra week off at the beginning of the year.
I’d highly recommend it, I took walks, read, ate breakfast out, pottered around at home and did feel refreshed when I finally made it back to work.
Going back to work however, massively slowed my reading down, I just had to settle for grabbing ten minutes here and there wherever possible.
Here’s what I did get through though….
The Next person you meet in heaven by Mitch Albom
Heart-warming, life affirming, comforting.
No act done for someone else is ever wasted
The Reading List by Sara Nisha Adams
Book. Of. The. Month!!!!
It’s beautiful, sums up the power of reading and how stories connect us. I’ve always been a fan of books about books, this one was wonderful
Under the skin by Michel Faber
Creepy, intense, wonderfully weird and gripping.
I have never read anything quite like this before, I loved how uncomfortable it made me feel.
The Stranger in the Lifeboat by Mitch Albom
Thought provoking tale about self-forgiveness. Kept me questioning and made me think
Did they steal a million yet? By James Crookes
A sequel to a book I read last year. Loses none of the charm and humour of the first, great characters and a load of nostalgia
Sorrow and Bliss by Meg Mason
Unflinching, honest story about one woman’s long battle with her mental health, funny and devastating.
Came to it late, it’s been on my TBR for ages full review to follow as soon as I get my arse in gear….
I’d love to hear if you’ve read any of these or if any take your fancy…
