Do books find you?
Do you find books?
I ask, because sometimes I will pick up a highly recommended
book and no matter how I try I can't get into it
Three months later I try again and can't put it down!!
Sometimes I have a craving for suspense
sometimes soppy romance
sometimes something historical
sometimes an old classic is all that will do
but whatever I choose there is
one absolute criteria
It always has to be well written
Whilst we have had a wonderful time with our UK daughter
it has been a sad few weeks here and
I desperately wanted something light and breezy to read
Now doesn't this cover just scream
Well it did to me
so I grabbed it and raced home.
it is not
Beautifully and magically written
Light and breezy
it is not
A book to bury yourself in
But sad and funny and uplifting as it is
it turns out it was just the book I needed
When I finished
I was so entranced with this authors writing
that I went searching for anything else she had written
I wish I had read it first
as the characters are the same
and Belong to Me follows on a few years later
But had I picked it up first
would it have been the book I needed now?
I don't think so.
I can only say if you haven't read either of these
do yourself a favour and get them
but it might help to read in the right order
