I’m reading…

The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion

It’s good to be back again in the company of Don and Rosie and the next instalment in their lives.  This sequel is just as humerous and heart-warming as the first.  I reviewed The Rosie Project here if you’re interested in checking that out.

The Rosie EffectThe blurb

Forty-one-year-old geneticist Don Tillman had never had a second date before he met Rosie.

Now, living in New York City, they have survived ten months and ten days of marriage, even if Don has had to sacrifice standardized meals and embrace unscheduled sex.

But then Rosie drops the mother of all bombshells. And Don must prepare for the biggest challenge of his previously ordered life – while dodging deportation, prosecution and professional disgrace.

Is Don Tillman ready to become the man he always dreamed of being? Or will he revert to his old ways and risk losing Rosie for ever?

 


I recently finished

The Trouble with Goats and Sheep by Joanna Cannon

A thoroughly delightful read that will particularly appeal to anyone that grew up in the 1970s and 80s…reminiscent of my own childhood.  A book that you long to savour but can’t help devouring.

The Trouble with Goats and SheepThe blurb

England, 1976.

Mrs Creasy is missing and The Avenue is alive with whispers. As the summer shimmers endlessly on, ten-year-olds Grace and Tilly decide to take matters into their own hands.

And as the cul-de-sac starts giving up its secrets, the amateur detectives will find much more than they imagined…

 

 


 What’s up next?

Short Cut by Leigh Russell

I met Leigh recently at an author / blogger meet up in London and she offered me her book for review.  I’m expecting this to be a lot darker than my usual crime thriller reads but I’ll give it a go.  This is the first in her DI Geraldine Steel mystery series.

Short CutThe blurb

When DI Geraldine Steel relocates to the quiet rural town of Woolsmarsh, she expects to find her new home to be somewhere where nothing much ever happens; a space where she can battle her demons in private.

But when she finds herself pitted against a twisted killer preying on local young women she quickly discovers how wrong she is…

    I got the Rosie Project from the library a few months ago but somehow never got around to reading and ended up having to return it. I think I just wasn’t sure about it and kept putting it off. Maybe I should give it another try.

    I think I’m going to have to buy The Trouble with Goats and Sheep for my Kindle as I’m still struggling to hold my hardback edition. I was a child in the 80s so I’m sure this book will resonate with me a lot too. I’m glad you enjoyed reading it. I haven’t read any of Leigh Russell’s books but this one sound good, I’ll look forward to reading your review once you’ve read it. Hope you have a great week!

    Do you think you could persuade your book club to read Goats and Sheep? I’ve given my copy to my mum and I think she’ll enjoy it. She and Dad can remember the heatwave of ’76! 🙂

    I hope you enjoy the Leigh Russell. I have the copy of her new crossover book safely stashed upstairs and I’m working my way towards it as quickly as I can.

    I still have to read The Rosie Project, hopefully some time this year… It sounds like an interesting read though. Cut Short looks really intriguing as well; I hope you’ll enjoy your books this week!

    The blurb for Cut Short has me wanting more! I fear it might be too graphic for me, I can’t lose more sleep than I already am so I’ll wait for your review 🙂
    The Rosie Project is on my TBR, I am thinking about getting it soon as spring is perfect for some heart-warming reads
    Happy reading!
