You can take part in this weekly meme over on the Book Journey blog.
This week I finished reading Meet Me Under the Mistletoe by Abby Clements. The book was recommended to me by my friend Fay over at Blog A Book Etc. I’ve really enjoyed this book and it’s given me the christmas bug big time! I’ll be posting a review this week so look out for that.
I have just started reading From Notting Hill With Love… Actually by Ali McNamara as I was sent the sequel to review, and wanted to read the first one before starting it. I’m not sure if I can stick this one out. It seems really good, except the heroine is a huge Hugh Grant fan and her love of chick films seems to be a big theme in the book, and that’s not really my thing at all. Hugh Grant makes me ashamed to be English. (sorry H G fans!)
I also really need to finish off some books that I’ve started and not finished. Some of these were mentioned in my Unfinished Book Challenge and still need to be read. I’m a little bit over the craze for erotic fiction started by Fifty Shades but I’d still like to get these out of the way.
I am hoping to write my review of Style Me Vintage Tea Parties this week. the book is brilliant and I was lucky enough to attend the launch party.
I am also waiting to review The Biscuiteers book of iced biscuits but I’d like to try a few of the ideas in the book first so I’m going to put an evening aside to get baking.
Lastly I am currently listening to Rosie Hopkins’ Sweet Shop of Dreams on audiobook. I always like to have an audiobook on the go for when I’m doing the housework. I’m about halfway through this one and really enjoying it. The story contains lots of flashbacks to the 1940s and is really nostalgic, right up my street!
