It’s Monday What are you Reading?

It's Monday, What are you Reading copy

This weekly meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. Every Monday we share the highlights of our reading week, and our plans for next week.

This week I managed to finish The Casual Vacancy by J K Rowling. This book has had very mixed reviews, I personally thought it was an accomplished piece of writing and found it very thought-provoking. I have so much to say about this one and I’m really hoping to get down to writing a review this week.

The Casual Vacancy

I also finished With Love at Christmas by Carole Matthews, this is a lovely christmas read and I would highly recommend it. I will try to get this one reviewed this week too.

I have started reading The Vintage Teacup Club by Vanessa Greene, I’m only a few chapters in, but so far so good. This book really appeals to me. I’m planning on doing a little feature or two on books with vintage themes, and this is just perfect for vintage lovers and thrifters alike.

I have just got the audio book of One Hundred Names by Cecelia Ahern, looking forward to having a listen to this one over the next week.

The to read list hasn’t been added to but is still huge, so I won’t be adding to it until after christmas, these are the ones I really want to get read in the next couple of weeks.

Laura’s Handmade Life by Amanda Addison – The First Last Kiss by Ali Harris – From Notting Hill to New York… Actually – Never Can Say Goodbye by Christina Jones

I haven’t written any reviews this week as I’ve been super busy so next week should be pretty review heavy as I have loads of catching up to do.

In other news my little girl played Mary in her school nativity this week and was absolutely perfect, I was such a proud mum. She had a busy week having been on a quick holiday to Lapland with her Grandparents last week as well. We’re all feeling really festive here!

    Looking forward to your review of Casual Vacancy, I have heard soooo many conflicting views about it already! And ditto the previous commenter about the Ahern book, I will need to check that out.

    You’d think a J.K Rowlings book would have a nicer cover. I hate that damn cover! Sorry but it doesn’t make me want to buy it. Anyway thanks for the Christmas recomendation ‘With Love at Christmas’

    I started North of Need anyway here is my take Jackie’s Bookbytes

    Congrats for your daughter’s successful performance. I am glad you are enjoying your continuing reads – at this time of year it can be hard to find as much time for reading as you might wish.
