Have you read a good book lately?

Time out with a good book, esp. on a bleak dull day, in front of a cosy fire is a great way to mellow out. Have you read any novels worthy of a mention?

Bushwoman may be the book to read

I purchased the One Plus One book by Jo Jo Moyes in a recent promotion to win a car. It was a great tale that was easy to read and I actually quite enjoyed it. I didn't win the car tho. Ho hum never mind.

Love the classics - I recently re-read To Kill a Mockingbird and was captivated all over again.

I am reading 'The Washer Woman's Dream' by Hilarie Lindsay. Its a non fiction, but reads like fiction as it covers the amazing life of Winifred Steger who was born in England in 1882. To break their cycle of poverty, her father takes part in a a land grab and they go to Australia. The book details the hard life she had as a child, her disasterous first marriage and then marriage to an Indian man and her pilgrimage to Mecca. Absolutely amazing story, I am 3/4 of the way through and can't put it down! What a strong woman.

I read "Before I Fall" most recently. It was a really though provoking book based on a superficial teenager - about making sure you are always being the best person you can be....as you don't know when you will die and you can't put things right after you die. So make sure you are always doing the 'right' thing in the here and now.
I will definitely be getting my teenagers to read it too!

I've just finished JoJo Moyes 'The One Plus One'. I'd never read any of hers before but I think I will have to read the rest now...totally loved 'The One Plus One'. Such an engaging story, I laughed and cried and couldn't put it down.
