More books!

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:

Christy was reading this book when she came to stay with us last month – looks like some good, solid chicklit!

I love a good bit of non-fiction. I saw this reviewed on a late night show and thought it was worth a whirl. What did we do before google?

Heh. In all seriousness, I would love to at least become a little less procrastinaty….hopefully this will help!

What are you reading, lovelies?

    I wonder how many procrastinators buy that book and put off reading it… 😉

    I just finished On Writing by Steven King. Now I'm reading Ender's Shadow. Listening, actually. I am reading the newest book in the Maisie Dobbs series.

    I loved A Homemade Life!I just finished a book called Distant Hours, by Kate Morton. I found her recently and first read her book called The House at Riverton and really enjoyed them both. She has a third, it is next on my list! Another recent read was The Kitchen House, though I can't recall the author…
