Books, Books and more books!

I can't believe it had been 7 weeks since my last update. I've been having a good old read and here are my latest reads.

First on the list for the update is another Katie Fforde. I do tend to read everything by an author when I find one I love. So this one was Paradise Fields. It was a fairly typical Chick lit style book but a lovely read all the same.

Next was The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. This is one of my childhood favourites and a joy to re-read after many years. My son is starting to read children's novels rather than just picture books and easy readers and its wonderful to see him enjoying authors such as Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl and now Cressida Cowell, author of the How to train a dragon books.

Having enjoyed the White Giraffe I found 3 more books by the same author in the library over the summer and read the second in the series called Dolphin Song. It was another lovely read and I'm on the look out for the last 2 in the series. Lauren St John has also written a set of children's mysteries set in Cornwall about another Orphaned girl sent to live with her uncle. Lovely stories again and I've read the first two in the Laura Marlin series Dead Man's Cove and Kidnap in the Caribbean.

I also re-read Is it just me by Miranda Hart and the last book on the list is How to train a dragon. Very funny book and we have just gotten the second in the series out of the library so that will be read in the next 3 weeks.
