This is my first time taking part in this meme from Bookjourney, so here goes!
I managed to finish two books over the weekend - the first was Gallows View by Peter Robinson
This is the first in the Inspector Banks series, which comes highly recommended to me by my mother, amongst many others. I was a little disappointed, to be honest, but I'll try a couple more as I think the series will improve as it goes on - this first one seemed a bit slow and very dated!
My second read of the weekend was Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach.
This is a book that has been sitting on my TBR pile for ages. I decided to get it read as it is on patchworkbunny's wishlist so I said I'd swap with her. I really enjoyed the more gruesome chapters in this book, but I'm afraid the rest I found a bit boring and was again disappointed.
A quick visit to the library today, as it's the beginning of the Easter holidays and I'm lucky enough to work term-time only, and this is what we came home with:
I've started this one first. I haven't read anything by David Mitchell before, though again, Cloud Atlas has been on my TBR shelf forever ... not sure why it hasn't appealed! We'll see how I get on with this one.
I love Dorothy Koomson's books - Ice Cream Girls was a great read, and I hope this one lives up to my expectations!
Natasha picked up these two:
... which I've just realised is the second in the series - luckily I have the first so she can read that first. And
And Freddie came home with two Football Academy books and
Some good reading to be done this week :)
