A Good Book….

Is there anything better than a good book?  Curling up cosy on the couch, reading before bed, whiling away a commute…there’s always a time to crack open a book.  Here are a few of my recent favourites – I thought I’d share!  I always get great tips from other bloggers (hat-tip especially to Christy and Shan), so I thought I’d join the party 🙂

This was one of my favourite books as a child, and now I have it as one of my class readers with my Year 5s each year. I reread it at the start of term, and it’s just as good as ever. Do you enjoy the Narnia series?

This was a really fun read! I love Go Fug Yourself (Fug Nation represent!), and this book has just as much warmth and silliness as the blog does. So much fun.

This book was a great read! Absolutely facsinating and definitely made me think more about how I use the internet. I love reading books on the brain.

I *love* Caitlin Moran. I want to have tea/wine/dinner with her and put the world to rights. This collection of her writings is wonderful – funny, silly, moving. Brilliant.

Nora Ephron was such a dame. Such a dame. This collection of essays is like a masterclass in the form, while still hugely entertaining. I strongly reccommend!

So friends, what have you been reading? I am always up for some new suggestions!

    I'm reading a novel by an author from my state that is set in early 2000s Russia – it's spooky in a fun sort of way, combining the natural with the supernatural (there's a ghost.)
