Today I thought I’d do a January reading wrap up with the help of WWW Wednesdays. The bullet points are: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?   And link-up details can be found here. My current reads are: The Dry – Jane Harper This is something I’ve actually been in the middle of for ages.  I recently re-clicked it on my Kindle, because I want to read the…

My Top 10 Books of 2017

14th December 2017

And so, Goodreads says that I’ve read 33 books this year.  My target was 50, so not quite there, but I did read some good ones. This post contains, um, one affiliate link. 10.  All The Missing Girls, Megan Miranda – 5 stars, and I finished this at 4 AM.  And I cried at the end.  This year, tears have meant a good review. 9.  The Fact of A Body: A Murder and a Memoir, Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich –  This read like…

Coffee & Current Reads

29th July 2017

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you it’s like October here today, but the sun’s trying to come out. Neil and Isla have gone to the shops, and I’m here on coffee and ready to share. Settle in. We went to a pop-up market in town this week and spent too much on mojito fudge that didn’t actually have mojito in it, I was disappointed. This is an actual mojito fudge recipe. I probably won’t try it myself, but…
