Starting this to help me with the PostAWeek2011 challenge.
One of my favourite things to do in the holidays is to settle in with a good book. Christmas brought with it a few new ones, which I’ve been working my way through.
I got this book with a voucher from my secret Santa! It was the next in the series of Detective Alex Cross books, which I love, and I got through it in about a week, it was hard to put down! You don’t need to have read the previous books in the series to understand whats going on, its pretty well explained, but its good to have a background on who everyone else is.
Recommended if: you like detective ‘who-dunnit’ stories, though its rated PG for some violence.
I found this book while I was away on Christmas holiday, and its one of the best books I’ve read in a long time! A mix of Audrey Hepburn trivia, and tips on how to emulate her lifestyle and fashion. Did you know – she took 52 suitcases with her when she traveled, smoked right up until she died, and hated watching her own movies! A really interesting book, also hard to put down.
Recommended if: you’re a big Audrey Hepburn fan like me!!
A present from Andrew – I’m still reading this one, although I’m over halfway through. So far its an interesting story about a husband who is a drug addict, and his family who are dealing with it. They have to move house because of debts and now live next door to a man who their 8 year old son thinks is Santa! There’s been some funny moments so far, so I’m looking forward to the ending.
Recommended if: you like a good light-hearted story thats not too deep, but still entertaining.
