Feeling pretty chuffed with myself I have a whole charity bag full of books that I have read all ready to drop off tomorrow. It's made space for more books ;):D

I read And the Mountains Echoed last year but like you I struggled with Splendid Suns. It just didn't seem to have the flow of the others. I admit I paused midway and read another book in the middle just to give myself a break.

I agree the book is a little sluggish in the middle. But the story is very beautiful and moving. The ending is just brilliant. I loved A Thousand Splendid Suns

Whatever it takes was such a good book! It really kept me hooked from start to finish. The twist at the end really shocked me and I'd love if there was a sequel to it, just to find out what happens.

I was out today and picked up two new books (oops) and I've started to read one of them. Never read any of Giovanna Fletcher's books before but decided to try something new. I've only read 40 pages and I'm hooked. I have definitely found a new author that I will be reading religiously with every new release.

So I've just finished Billy & Me. All I can say is wow...I loved it from start to finish, I fell in love with the characters and the tears I cried near the end was just never ending....if you haven't read this book yet please, please do. It's amazing!!

 

I've now picked up Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer...

I have some Katie Fforde books, but I don't own that one. I hope you enjoy it :).

 

What did you think of Between the Lines, did you finish it?

I actually couldn't get into Between the Lines at all. It was just not my cup of tea at all. It's in the charity bag waiting to be dropped off.

Finished A Vintage Wedding finally after not picking it for a few days due to my boyfriend being up for a flying visit. Loved the book, very easy to read and I didn't want it to end.

 

Now onto The Holiday by Jane Green

Just finished The Holiday. As it turned out it was three short stories by three people. All based on Christmas. I really enjoyed it. They were very easy to read, felt that character development maybe wasn't as good as I'm used to with Jane Green, but it was a lovely light read.

 

Now what next??

I'm glad you enjoyed it. I don't own that one, but it sounds like a nice book to read during the winter time.

It's a lovely easy read. I managed to read two of the stories in one day. Definitely one to have.

So now I've picked up The Beekeepers Daughter by Santa Montefiore. I've started it but it sounds very familiar. So I'm beginning to wonder if I have already read this one, but it somehow managed to land in my to read pile rather than my charity pile...plus it's a hardback book so I can't tell if it's been read like with my paperbacks

So as it turns out I've already read The Beekeepers Daughter. My mum came in and was like you've read that one already silly...so now I know and I've picked up The Cake Shop in the Garden by Carole Matthews...
