I read Jamaica Inn in April and I loved it. Just my kind of book to be honest. I’m glad I have more in the set to read. When I have a set of books by one author I like to leave a gap before reading another book so I don’t mix up the characters and stories.
Triple oops this month. I caved in and bought more yet more books:
I raced through this one and the story really takes some twists and turns. I’ve also started on book 3:
I’m almost finished and wished there was another one (at least) in the series. There are some parts that feel a bit rushed or unfinished but it’s a great set and a good read. I am firmly blaming my co-workers for saying how great book 2 and 3 are for me caving in.
The other book I bought was part of a trilogy too:
I got book 1 free on Amazon and book 2 was reduced to 99p for a while… I’m stalking book 3 at the minute to get that at a low price! I wish there was some way to set up an alert on Amazon for when the price drops? Please let me know if there is! It’s another kids story about a boy called Jack Brenin who has special powers and, with the aid of some unusual friends, tries to save some other unusual friends. I imagine I’ll read this together with my daughter in a few years as I think it will be right up her street.
Another one or two for the bookshelf this month will be:
I don’t think I’ve seen the film of this one. I read The Stepford Wives a couple of months ago and this was in the same set and the blurb on the back sounds interesting.
