My photo

I knit, I sew, I run, I look after children and hamsters, I take truly terrible pictures, I cook, I complain.  Sometimes all at the same time.

The Derek Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can't Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too

Books this year so far, reviewed.

A Fairly Honourable Defeat; Iris Murdoch - horrible, destructive people; brilliant writing
Tempting Fate; Jane Green - not great
The Goldfinch; Donna Tartt - really brilliant, if a bit flawed towards the end
Mrs Tim Flies Home; DE Stevenson - fun, a bit dated, quick to read
Sara Gay, Model Girl; Janey Scott - very dated, very fun, very bad
Various Pets Alive and Dead; Marina Lewycka - love, love, love her
The Prisoner of Heaven; Carlos Ruiz Zafón - really should go back and read the others now, and then this one again
The Bones under the Beach Hut; Simon Brett - another fun book

7 books in nearly 10 weeks.  If I want to get to 52 by the end of the year, I need to get a move on and read more very, very short books.  Quantity, not quality.

March Madness - 8/31
