Books for any occasion and other life stuff


on June 12, 2010

For lack of book reviews, competitions and give aways, we recently moved house and our internet connection hasn’t been connected for the last month. Luckily for 3G cards, I can be here this morning!

So, in my absence on the internet I have been reading, nothing like being forced into an exhile from blogging… and I have discovered Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time series.

I am currently on the second book ‘The Great Hunt’ and have to say I am hooked. I can’t say it will be everybodies cup of tea as it is a fantasy novel and series. But the thing I am really enjoying about it is that it manages to pull you into the world that Robert Jordan has created. In a very similar vein to Tolkien. The characters grow into their respective roles and like most fantasy novels, they do not know that they have special abilities until a catastrophe happens and then their world as they know it, changes forever.

This is a series of 12 books, so it may take me some time to get through them and as I am taking them out of the library, it may take even more  time (so far, I have been lucky in the fact that all three books have been in when I have gone in to look for them) I am 3/4 way through the second book so can see myself starting no 3, The Dragon Reborn, after the weekend.

As for other bookish news, I have also recently discovered Louise Bagshaw, she is great for those ‘non thinking’ days that you want something light to read. Sparkles was the first book I read, interesting story line, and light enough to be chick lit. I currently have Glamour on my bedside table, so expect a review of that in the near future!

But enough about me, tell me about you! What books have you discovered in my absence, what have you been reading?¬† Its Winter and I’m sure that most of you have at least one book that is keeping you warm….

I am itching to know!
