Well, it’s been another busy week. I’d like the opportunity to slow down a bit, but I think I’ll just need to accept that one Christmas party is a quiet week! Here’s what followed me home over the last seven days:
I caught up on buying some series I’m enjoying. Deborah Challinor’s A Tattooed Heart
is the final book in the Convict Girls series. It involves a child abduction, breaking the law and the reveal of a shocking secret.
The Story of a New Name is the second book in Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan Quartet. This book deals with marriage and affairs as the girls grow up, but they remain friends through it all.
It’s no secret that I love the Top Gear series. These are two more light-hearted books – Top Gear Drivers’ Handbook by Richard Porter is the guide every ‘motoringist’ needs – from changing a tyre to baking a Victoria Sponge. Top Gear: The Alternative Highway Code by Richard Porter and Paul Powell
contains all the information you need about today’s roads from hand signals to why Jeremy Clarkson is like a motorway (bold and going bald in case you didn’t know).
If you want to check out more exciting bookshelves, do drop by the Mailbox Monday blog for links to everyone’s mailbox goodies. Overseen by Vicki (I’d Rather Be at the Beach), Leslie (Under My Apple Tree) and Serena (Savvy Verse & Wit), I’m sure you’ll find many books for the wish list!
What I Read Last Week:
Hester and Harriet by Hilary Spiers
What I’m Reading at the Moment:
James May’s Toy Stories
