Getting my read on!

This is the current view of my beside table. 5 lovely books to be read over the next 5 weeks.

Yes, I was feeling a little taskless so I decided to set myself a challenge. I've hardly read any books this year so I've picked 5 books some old, some new, to read between now and December. I have:

1. This Charming Man by Marian Keyes I had started this once before putting it to one side to read Heaven Can wait and it was easy to get back into

2. The five people you meet in heaven by Mitch Albom Not my usual sort of read but the author was recommended so I'm looking forward to reading this

3. The starter marriage by Kate Harrison Also a recommended author

4. The Accidental Family by Rowan Coleman I LOVED The Accidental Wife and the prequel to this The Accidental Mother

5. Dear Fatty by Dawn French Other than reading Chick Lit I love to read autobiographies and I think Dawn French is just lovely and hilarious.


  1. Dear Fatty is lovely. I hope you enjoy them all.

  2. I've only read the Marian Keyes one out of that lot, but they all sound great :o)

  3. I've only read the five people you meet in was ok but I really loved Tuesday's with Morrie and can highly recommend that one!!

    Hope you enjoy

  4. I haven't read any of those but I would like to read 'Dear fatty'.

  5. JJ - thanks, I'm going to read DF next so really looking forward to it.

    Karen - You were right about sticking with it, thanks!

    C - Thanks, I got five people you meet in heaven after you recomnmended Tuesdays with Morrie but I couldnt find it at the time. I've since learnt its not kept in the same section so will get that next time.

    DJ - I'm reading that one after MK so will let you know what I think but I'm hearing good things so far!

  6. I have all of those books!! I'm sure you are going to enjoy them :)

  7. Based on these selections, I think you might like The Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier. Don't let the title put you off, it's a fantastic book about memories and being remembered.

    Also, thank you for visiting my blog on Tuesday for Cally's interview!


  8. SE - Thank you!

    Hi Cassandra - thanks for visiting and for the book recommendation. It sounds like a lovely book.
