On the bookshelf

I love books – LOVE. I love books as much as coffee and bags. That’s a lot.

But I tend to go through phases of reading non-stop to not picking up a book for weeks. It just depends on work load and as I normally read in the evening when I’m getting home late my nightly story time doesn’t happen!

Since getting back from holiday last month (armed with a shiny, new book) I’ve managed to make time to read on a more regular basis which I intend to keep up.

I’ve recently finished The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton and it’s a great choice for anyone who’s busy but doesn’t want to read something too light. It’s an easy read that doesn’t make you try too hard but has enough of a story line and plot to keep you interested.

I was first drawn to the cover and the idea of the story is original – based on a doll’s house which is an exact replica of the main character’s new home.

I’ve now come to the end of Burial Rites – again a striking blue cover and a really interesting story set in Iceland.

I’ve made a Long list of what to read next – anyone have any recommendations?

    Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children is really good and I will bring it with me for you to read. Sarah Waters ‘Paying Guests’ is quite a good read too. Both are easy readers.
