Oh how I love half term! I’ve had a really super time in London so I’m playing catch up again but I know I won’t finish my book today so I thought I’d check in with you all and post my round-up!
I really do like the month of May because the sun tends to be shining and the daylight hours are continuously extended, little by little. Reading wise, it’s been a joy as well. I’ve managed to read 12 books this month which I’m pleased about. You’ll notice a particular type of book this month too. Let’s check out the shelves!
I did warn you that there’s a particular type of book this month but there’s been some great ones here actually. Here’s my top three!
- Humble Pie – Gordon Ramsey. I am a huge Gordon Ramsey fan so when I stumbled across this in a second hand book shop, I just had to get it. I loved this book because it was just so refreshingly honest. He’s got a clear persona for TV but loyalty to his staff shines through. A really great non-fiction read!
- A Secret Garden Affair – Erica James. I really do like the writing style of Erica James and I also think she’s the queen of character creating. I found this story completely compelling and I couldn’t put it down. Beautiful cover too!
- The Miseducation of Evie Epworth – Matson Taylor. You may remember another Matson Taylor book and that’s because it appears that I’ve read these the wrong way round! It didn’t do any harm though and I loved this just as much as All About Evie.
This month appears to have been good but my brain hasn’t really got to grips with lengthier or complicated plots. In fact, some of these are rather simple picture books. Paris is a beautiful book and I love the affirmations from. She Believed She Could and All on the Board. Sometimes you just need the simpler things. Reading is reading. It’s about the pleasure of it.
Like I said in my previous post, I’ve seen a number of shows that I want to catch up with you all about and of course, my trip to London. It’s been a blast. Here’s to the next half of the week!
Big love all xxxx
