This month I've been reading...
Amity and Sorrow - Peggy Riley
I enjoyed this book, but it's not comfortable reading. It's about a woman and her 2 daughters who escape a cult. You have a horrible feeling all the way through that something is very, very wrong with some of the family relationships, and that feeling is correct. It's still a good book though, honest.
Welcome to Rosie Hopkins Sweet Shop of Dreams - Jenny Colgan
I liked this little bit of chick lit, about a woman who goes to help her aunt, who is ill and needs to sell her home and sweet shop business to pay for nursing care, for a couple of weeks. But there are handsome men in the village, and surprise surprise Rosie Hopkins falls in love with the old sweet shop and is a nurse. The bit I liked though, was flashbacks to the aunty's life in the 1940's.
Bogwoppit - Ursula Moray Williams
I listened to this on audiobook (I was trying to see if I could crochet and listen to stories at the same time, I can't I get distracted by one and lose track of the other) I think I would have preferred to read it myself but the terribly well spoken reader was quite enjoyable. I liked this children's classic, it has adventure and amusing creatures. I want a bogwoppit.
Coming Up Roses - Cath Kidston
I got this out for the pretty pictures, but actually liked reading about the development of the company. And the pretty pictures.
