What are you reading? A mini book review


Hey everyone!

How are you all!?

What book has been on your coffee table or beach blanket for that matter, this summer?

I’ve been reading ‘lullabies for little criminals’ by Heather O’Neill

While not for the faint of heart this novel is frustratingly real.

“A gritty, heart-wrenching novel about bruised innocence on the city’s feral streets- the remarkable debut of a stunning literary talent” is right!

It’s just what the doctor prescribed for me this summer.

It’s inspired some grittier writing of my own.

    Hello stranger! 🙂
    I’ve read through John Ajvide Lindqvist’s books in chronological order. Like you do. From Let The
    Right One In to Little Star.
    Now I’m reading a non-fiction book about the Northumbrian King (and Saint) Oswald. I won’t even bother to give you the synopsis on the back, because when I informed my Mrs on the way back from my shopping expedition via Facebook what I had bought, I hadn’t even got through the first sentence and I was deleted and blocked!

        Of course. With my Jen, it a bit humourous. I get as far as ‘7th century divided Britain ‘ and she tells me “Bore on!” 🙂
        How are things with you ? Had a good summer?

        I understand. My Mr. Likes everything technical and mechanical (snore) I find myself nodding and my mind wandering when he shares what he’s reading… Lol and I’m sure he humours me just the same.
        Summer is going well. At the cottage right now with the little (well not so little anymore) ones, attempting to teach them how to play the card game Hearts after way too many rounds of War and Go Fish!
        And yourself!?

        It’s been the best summer we have had for a while-weather wise-although it now seems to have come to an end. The shift is taking place I think.
        Kids are good, family are fine. Here’s to more of the same for both of us 🙂

  2. Sprinkled With Words

    I’ve read a lot of books this summer (I got out of school 2 months ago); currently, I’m reading ‘Go Ask Alice’ by Anonymous and Pride and Prejudice. But I have read ‘In Cold Blood’ by Truman Capote, which is also not for the faint hearted!

    Hi I ended up reading Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier as my son ‘borrowed’ my kindle! I really enjoyed it – one of those you can’t stop reading but are sad when you get to the end, because it’s finished!
