What I'm reading right now


Oh books, how I love thee. Library, I adore.

This is what I'm reading at the moment.

Never Let Me Go - Kazuo Ishiguro. Slightly odd and unusual story. Now a movie with Keira Knighley. I woldn't mind seeing it.

The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins. Loved it, couldn't put it down! I'm picking up the other two books in the series tomorrow.

Patronage - Maria Edgeworth. haven't read this yet, but the blurb states that this author was one of Jane Austen's bestselling rivals, so it should be interesting.

The Book of Nuturing - Linda and Richard Eyre. I borrowed this book as it is written by the parents of one of my blog crushes. I might be late to the cool phenomenon of the Mormon mummy bloggers, but I just love their blogs. My favourite (as recommended by Peta, thanks!) is 71 Toes. Any other recommendations?

Escape - Carolyn Jessop. Again I borrowed this as one of the Mormon mommy bloggers was reading it. Very interesting read, about Carolyn's escape from the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Shall We Dance - Maggie Alderson. A good chick lit read.

The Fix - Nick Earls. A pretty intrighing but light read, based in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, so it was very familiar settings!

Creative Crafts for Kids - M loved this book!

Crunch Time, lose weight fast and keep it off - Michelle Bridges. I borrowed this for the second time as Michelle has written quite a few inspiringn words in this book.

What are you reading? Do you buy your books or go to the library?

I finished reading The Help and I have just started The Other Boleyn Girl. It's my first delve into Tudor type novels. Will let you know how it goes. You've read The Book Thief, yes? My fave book of all time. I have pre-ordered The Entitlement Trap from the Eyres. Waiting for it to arrive. I can lend to you when I have finished if you like? Look forward to seeing what others are reading. Love my books! As for where I get them, some I buy for kindle, some I buy via fishpond or book depository and others I borrow from friends or local library. My kids love books too so we visit the library a lot. I borrow lots of cookbooks/family eating/whole foods type books too.
