Reading Down My TBR Pile

I’ve decided that I’d like to start keeping a weekly record of what I read again (more than on Goodreads I mean).  I’ve missed doing so.   I’m not sure if I’m going to stick with the reading down my TBR pile title or not because lets be honest it’s hardly making an impact in the pile.

Here’s what I’ve read in the last ten days or so.

Sunshine Over Wildflower Cottage by Milly Johnson

I’ve read a lot of Milly Johnson books and enjoyed them.  But I had taken a break after getting very annoyed about the ending of the last one I read (it was a bit inappropriate, disability wise and made me want to throw the book across the room.)  Then I won a copy of Sunshine Over Wildflower Cottage so I gave it a go.

It was a fun read that I read cover to cover in one day, sitting in the garden (I’ve been doing a lot of that lately).  It’s not taxing and I always know what to expect but it is enjoyable and very relaxing

Song of The Skylark by Erica James

My first Erica James book and it definitely won’t be my last (I’ve had another of hers on my shelf for years following a twitter giveaway and will be reading it soon). Partially set during the Second World War this was chicklit with substance and I loved it.

A Year of Doing Good by Judith O’Reilly

This was a really irritating book.  I wrote more about that here.

Lost Lake by Sarah Addision Allen

I had forgotten just how much I like Sarah Addison Allen’s books.  This is the only one I own as all the rest were borrowed from friends or the library.  I need to have them on my bookshelves though!  I blew through this in one sitting (with just a two minutes break to turn the oven on when I realised how late it had got and was really hungry) and was disappointed when it ended.

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne.

This was not as good as a Harry Potter book but I did enjoy reading it.  It’s super quick.  I suspect the plays are a million times better than reading the script and I’m really keen to see how they stage it.
