Back from holidays and a reading update (It's Monday, so why not?!)

Well, another Monday has arrived, and this is my first Monday after my beautiful holiday in New Caledonia. I'm telling you, if you ever need a nice holiday away on a tropical island, New Caledonia is definitely an option you should think about. Lazing on the beach drinking cocktails (well, juice cocktails, the down side of pregnancy!) and swimming in that beautiful clear turquoise ocean. Sigh. Heaven.

But now I am back and ready to take on the world again. No, not really :-)

Current Read

This is an old favourite of mine, in fact, the entire book is. I have two copies of The Lord of The Rings. One is as it was written originally, with all of them in the one book. The second and my most used copy has each book separately. I took The Two Towers and The Return of the King with me on holidays and I am still finishing it off. I don't know what it is about The Lord of the Rings, but it just seems perfect to me. It's everything I want from a book. Real emotion. A real sense of place. In depth characters. Complexity. It's perfect.

Just finished

Having just come back from two weeks holidays I have just reading a lot and I loved reading them all! Some were re-reads and some were new to me books and some were new to me books and authors! Here's a list:

The Two Towers by JRR Tolkien (re-read)
The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde (new to me book)
Dumb Witness by Agatha Christie (new to me book)
The Third Pig Detective Agency by Bob Burke (re-read)
The Midwich Cuckoos by John Wyndham (new to me book) (how brilliant is John Wyndham!)
The Case of the Missing Servant by Tarquin Hall (new to me book and author)

Up Next

Who knows. I like to keep a bit of spice in my life.
