A few weeks ago I went along to the annual Bookarama, which is put on by one of our local community groups as a fundraiser.

For only a few dollars I was able to buy this great selection of books for Glenn and I, plenty of reading for over the winter months.

I was especially pleased to find this book, the Lost Wife by Alyson Richman, as it's been on my to read list for ages.

Some of the books I've enjoyed reading this year include:






I'm currently reading:


#6 in the Cousin's War series, this is the story of Margaret Pole, daughter of George, the Duke of Clarence.

So what have you read lately or looking forward to starting soon?

I've just finished The Girl on the Train - it was great. Now I'm reading another in the 44 Scotland Street series.

che bei libri, buona lettura!

Some good reads there. I have enjoyed all of Steve Berry's books, and am waiting on the latest Phillipa Gregory from the library. Currently I am reading romance stories - I have a cold and am not wanting stories that require to much concentration.

I'm just finishing The Edge of Eternity by Ken Follett. It's the third book of his Century Trilogy. The first 2 are The Fall of Giants and Winter of The World. I started in November and read them in order. They are long books but amazing. If you like historical fiction I would highly recommend them!

I've read a few of your new-to-you books. A couple I've read that you might like are: The Tutor by Andrea Chapin and War of the Roses - Stormbird by Conn Iggulden
(definitely a different viewpoint).
I'm still on the waitlist for the King's Curse (some day!)

What a great selection to keep you reading. I love Steve Berry and Phillipa Gregory and Barbara Erskine too (she lives in the same county as I do). DH also loves Ken Follett, so I can appreciate your joy. I've been reading the Lei Crime series by Toby Neal (as ebooks) - crime set in Hawaiian Islands.

With Cleo, you'll need a box of tissues. But it was one of the best books I read that year. It sits with you, which I think is a sign of a good book.

Great collection. You'll enjoy At Home with the Templetons by Monica McInerney - I simply couldn't put that book down. Happy reading.
