Last week I wrote a post all about which books I was hoping to read over the Easter break.
Well, dear reader, I have devoured all five. I am in such a reading place right now – I feel the hunger for words, for knowledge and the desire to curl up and read on consuming me. This is a good thing.
One Thousand Gifts was a really beautiful read, full of poignancy and depth. It really made me think deeply, and that’s always high praise as far as I’m concerned. A Homemade Life was wonderful, packed with recipes which instantly made me want to go to the kitchen and get mixing, as well as gorgeous, well-told stories which made me sigh and laugh and brought tears to my eyes. Room was supremely well crafted and interesting, and while it wasn’t for me a five-star book, it was a very good and thought-provoking read. The central character is a delight. The Wonderful Weekend Book was sweet and fun and packed with ideas. It also hardened my resolve to spend more time relaxing and having fun and less time working and cleaning at the weekend! And The Book Thief was stupendously good. I devoured it in a day and was utterly moved.
Next on the list are:
What are you reading, lovelies?
