Its Monday! What are you Reading? (28th Nov)

28 Nov

Its Monday! What are you Reading is a weekly bookish meme held over on book Journey. Its a chance for fellow book lovers to discuss all things bookish.

I had a bit better bookish week 🙂 I have 8 books to read  by the end of the year, so im hoping that i can reach the target, ill be disappointed if a dont!

Books Finished

I actually for a first time in a long while managed to read two books in the space of a week!

The first one was The Sweetest Taboo by Carole Matthews, and i have to say i didnt really enjoy this one as much as id like to have. It for me was just far to unrealistic.

The second book i finished was Cuckoo by Julia Crouch. I recieved this in the post as part of a book ring, and i read this over a couple of days. this book was fabulous, a real page turner and if you havent given it a go i definitaly would recommend it!

Reading now

I’m currently reading Be Careful What You Wish For by Alexandra Potter. Its really good as although its chick lit, it does have a bit of a spooky twist thrown in. It reminds me of Just My Luck, a movie starring Lyndsay Lohan and my favourite band McFly! I’m about halfway through and really enjoying it!

Reading Next

Next up is another chick lit, i will get them all read! This time its Step On It Cupid by Lorelei Matthias, I got this in a bundle of books a couple of years ago, and i havent heard of this author before.

Synopsis – Amelie’s life is arranged just how she likes it. Brilliant job, great social life, and on-off love-life. So it’s a shock when she realises one day that everyone she knows seem to be happily coupled up – getting married even. Is it time she thought about settling down?

Assigned an awful project in work – writing the ad campaign for Britain’s biggest speed-dating company – she is forced against her will into plenty of market research. And with her best mate Duncan, her annoying boss Joshua and her ex-boyfriend Jack all causing havoc in her life, maybe a speed-dating romance could be her salvation…

Books Brought

I brought one book last week,  i had read 4 books, so as my ‘read 4, buy 1 challenge’ I brought one book from the top of my wishlist. This was Old School Ties by Kate Harrison.

Synopsis – Your school days are supposed to be the best days of your life – and Tracey Mortimer has no argument with that. Sixteen years ago she was the most popular girl in school, ruled her own gang, and dated the cutest boy in her year. Now it’s all rather different: she’s 33, stuck in a dull marriage that’s only tolerable because her husband is rarely at home. And although she dearly loves her two children, a life of kids TV and alphabetti spaghetti is hardly exciting… Then Tracey spots an advert from a TV company wanting to make a reality-style show on a perfect school reunion – giving Tracey the chance to re-live the good old days. But not all her old school classmates remember their school days quite as Tracey does. Tracey made Suzanne Sharp’s life hell – so what better way to get her own back than revenge, live on national television…

I have quite a busy week this week, hope my reading doesnt suffer! Have a good week everyone 🙂

    If it weren’t for the audio books we listened to while stuck in holiday traffic, I wouldn’t have gotten much read this week. Please come see what we’ve read.
