It’s hard to believe that it is mid January already and we are half way through our first book of 2013.
I find that my mood and possibly the time of year dictates what I actually read (and if indeed I actually finish it). In the past few weeks I have started and abandoned The Hobbit by Tolkien, Cleaving by Julie Powell and Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan. One I enjoyed but got side tracked by something else resulting in it being left for another day, another exasperated me to the point of despair and the other I just didn’t gel with.
But there have been other books that I have picked up and devoured. Casino Royal by Ian Fleming for one – I loved its fast pace and its style difference from many of the other books I normally read and My Secret Garden by Alan Titchmarsh – the photography in it is just beautiful. There is another book that I received for Christmas, read half of, then stopped, put it down and placed it back on the shelf. It is not because I didn’t like it or got distracted by something else. No, it is because I was enjoying it so much that I want to nominate it for February in the hope that we may read it as a group. I am not going to tell you what it is, nor give you an inkling of what it is about. You will have to wait until nominations for that.
What else have you been reading? we would love to know! – Natalie.
