I saw that you plan to read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I have started reading a book
called Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum. It has a different naration style but the themes and story are similar. I am having trouble putting it down to do other things.
Its worth having a look at in the library or your local book shop.
Sorry so late to reply. My hubby has been in hospital for a good portion of the last 2 months, so I have been a bit distracted. He is on the mend now so hopefully life will be a bit more normal.
Happy New Year to you.. hopefully you and your family are happy and healthy in 2012.
Happy reading my friend.
Hey Colleen, How are you..
Its been busy here.. and I have been busy reading too..
I am reading Shearwater at the moment by Andrea Mayes. It is set in Australia (in a fictional town) It is ok but I am not REALLY loving it...\\
The weather is quite cold here (for Australia) so I hope you are getting some warm weather over there.
Take care and I would love to hear from you soon..
I agree.. we have been very luck where we are that it has only been hot weather. No disasters near us either. I feel so sad for people who have lost loved ones or homes etc in Japan, New Zealand or even Northern Australia!
No I havent read Room yet. I also havent really read anything REALLY great this year either. I did read Hanoi Stories by Pam Scott which was interesting but I wouldnt rave over it.
I am trying to read some of the books that I already have piled up at hoime before I get any more..
I am about to finish Constance by Rosie Thomas which was ok but again, not great. So I will look forward to something great to follow that up.
Take care and Happy Reading.. The Book of Negroes does look good..
I have been thinking of yoiu since my last note. How do you manage to DO anything when the weather is so cold? There would have to be snow and ice at that temp and how do you go anywhere. Sorry for my ignorance but I have obviously led a very sheltered life in a city where we dont get that extreme weather.
Hope all is well with you.
I have tears running down my cheeks from laughing. Unbelievable that you are freezing and we are melting!!!
Those books sound ok.. will have a look.
No I have not gone in for e-books yet.. we will say. I have to say that I love to have the books on my shelf.
Take care and chat soon
Hello, Hope you are well.. its really hot here this week.. around 40 dg c all this week.. Have you read anything good.. I would recommend Hanoi Stories by Pam Scott. I have just started The Hour I first Believed by Wally Lamb.. so far I am liking it.
