I was gonna call this summer reading, but with the lack of sunshine it's more like what I'm really with a blanky over me looking out at the rain!!
I love reading and I love recommendations of people. I usually go for crime fiction but do like the odd 'gay' read as me and brother call them such as twilight etc!! I like to read stuff that doesn't require me to think a lot, I want the book to take me away as such, and I have a pretty good imagination so I usually end up being one of the characters!!
I just finished reading Katy Reichs - Spider Bones. She is the lady that inspired the Bones TV series so if your in to all that kind of jazz this will be right up your street. Really enjoyed this book, however I did feel like there could of been another chapter to end it all.
The Simple Truth - David Baldacci is another great crime fiction read. I couldn't get enough of this book, i read it in know time. This author is definitely all he has been blown up to be and more. I can't wait to get more of his stuff!! (sorry i don't have the pic, i like to share my books)
With the huge hype that surrounded it I was desperate to read The Hunger Games Trilogy - Suzanne Collins. I had asked some of the lovely ladies over on Beaut.ie if it was too childish but they all assured me it was a great read. They we not wrong. I really enjoyed the books. I kinda wanted there to be a 4th one!! If you like fantasy reading this will be right up your street. However do be warned it does become slightly addictive and takes over your life!!! (missing a pic of one of the books as a housemate has it)
I came home to a lovely pressie of Solace - Belinda McKeon from the BF a couple of weeks ago. This book was voted no.1 Irish book of 2011. I wasn't sure what to expect but once I started reading I just couldn't stop. The style of writing the author uses is amazing. She writes the way you expect Irish people to speak. There is no room for bullshit descriptions of how green a leaf is etc. This book is essentially about the way we can never know what to expect to know from life, we just have to go with the flow!! It's def my pick of the last two months simply because I fell in love with the characters, it made me cry, and it reminded me so much of home!!
I just bought Fifty Shades of Grey after all the buzz about it so I shall report back in a couple of weeks as to how I found it!!
If any of you have good reads for me, please go ahead and suggest!!
