Currently Reading

1Q84, Haruki Murakami, book, book cover

1Q84 Book 2– I read book 1 over a year ago, and struggled a little with it. Now I think I’m ready to tackle book two, I’m missing Murakami. So far it feels more promising than book one.

A cupboard full of coats, Yvvette Edwards, book, book cover
A Cupboard Full of Coats– is one that’s been on my kindle for quite some time. Is the story of Jinx. Jinx’s mother was murdered and Jinx’s feels responsible. Not sure what to think of it yet, I’m not very far in.

Finished Last Week.

ruth hamilton, that liverpool girl, book, book cover

That Liverpool Girl- a story set during WW2 following a family- some in Liverpool, and some evacuated. As a war story I was rather disappointed, but as a story in general it was ok. My review is written and scheduled for tomorrow.
the starboard sea, Amber Demont, book, book cover

The Starboard Sea– gosh how long have been reading this book? Seems like a long time. It did turn out ok in the end. It’s the story of a boy whose best friend committed suicide, and him getting his life back together. My review of this will hopefully be out sometime during the week too.


where's igglepiggle's blanket, book, book cover, picture book, in the night garden

Where’s Igglepiggle’s Blanket was my Children’s Hour pick last week. It’s taken from the children’s television series, In the Night Garden, and is about Igglepiggle losing his blanket (believe it or not!)

Added to the TBR

dexter, dexter in the dark, jeff lindsay, book, book cover

Dexter in the Dark is the third book in the Dexter series (see my reviews of book 1 and book 2). In book three Dexter’s ‘dark passenger’ seems to have gone AWOL. This book came to me via bookmooch.
