Books are a lifeline for me.
Books are an escape.
Unfortunately lately I haven’t had a huge chance to sit back and read, but I managed to squeeze a few in 😊
1. Call the midwife –
Everyone knows about the TV show. Not everyone knows that Jennifer Worth wrote a series of books on her experience as a midwife in the 1950’s. I have only read the first book, but I tell you what I couldn’t put it down – so I look forward to getting the rest of them 😊
2. The fault in our stars –
John Green is a genius. Nuff said.
Alright, I read this book in 2 days..yes it was that good.
I fell in love with the characters right from the start, and I decided that Augustus Waters is my new literary love ❤ read it and trust me!
3. Gone girl –
I will admit that I originally brought this book in order to understand the hype behind it..but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was really thrilling and twisty…trust me I didn’t see the end coming! It creeped up on me real good! I haven’t watched the film but the book I will give an A.
4 + 5 The killing place + keeping the dead –
Alright, I will be honest this is not my typical boom genre. But I got hooked on rizzoli and isles a while back – so I decided to try out the books. Oh my goodness they are so good, so good!
There are a lot of plot twist and whodunnits which capture me and pull me in..right now I am half way through – the silent girl – my first audio book 👍
6. Divergent –
This was a what’s all the hype about purchase again..but totally worth it 😊 I was drawn into the story in no time. I haven’t got around to reading the other books in the series yet..but watch this space 😊
Those are the books I have read – and next year I plan to start reading some classics to the children – like The Hobbit, Peter Pan and Heidi.
Plus I have several in my to read list 😊
I have heard great things about The girl on the train and Me before you – which are both currently downloaded to my tablet, waiting to be read 😊
Here’s hoping to a better read 2016 👍
