I didn’t do a lot of reading last week (although I did listen to part of an audiobook – Lady Oracle by Margaret Atwood which I’m finding intriguing and hope to finish this week.) apart from ridiculous amounts of fanfic and then all of a sudden on Saturday I binge read many short things on Saturday, mostly on the trains to and from Birmingham.
I finished Waiting for You by Catherine Miller which I mentioned reading in the last of these posts. Full review here. TL;DR I enjoyed it.
I picked up The Ladybird Book of Mindfullness for a flick through whilst in Foyles and ended up skim reading the whole thing (It’s short so it only took a few minutes). That’s bad but I couldn’t resist. Seriously one of the funniest things I’ve read in a long time.
Valentine’s Day at the Star and Sixpence by Holly Hepburn was next. I’m enjoying the Star and Sixpence books but remain convinced that I enjoy novellas more in full versions. (This was free and I got a ARC of the first installment). And it made me want a cocktail!
Finally I read The Dance Begins by Diane Chamberlain. Wow it’s been ages since I’ve read one of her books and I’m now wondering why that is? I’d forgotten how much I enjoy them. I already have a couple of unread books of hers but The Dance Begins is the short story prequel to another book I don’t have and I’m trying to resist buyng that. I think of all the authors I’ve mentioned in this post she is probably the one I recommend the most.
