I started my 20 minutes of writing last night (to get this one up) and here I am on day 2, so I'm doing well so far.
But today I want to talk about my July reading.
I read 8 books in July, 1 of which was non-fiction.
My favourites of the bunch
1. Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe
This was a new author to me and I loved this book. I love books about food (!), summer, holidays and this had all of that.
A lovely, lovely, read. You'll want to book a holiday to Dorset.
(I then bought another of her books, an earlier one, and that is not nearly as good. Too much s*x and not enough substance!)
2. The Marriage Mender
I loved this book too - again, a first read by this author. It's about how a small thing can creep into a marriage and cause all kinds of havoc, and how easy it is to unravel a really good marriage.
Good pause for thought.
3. Do more great work
I've owned this book for a good 6 years or so, and only pulled out to read on the Gautrain travelling to a client.
I actually did most of the exercises which is really where the magic happens.
I had such amazing insights and I keep telling everyone to get this book. I highly recommend it.
The Maeve Binchy
This was one I enjoyed the least of all her books thus far. Nothing really I can put my finger on except one of the characters was really annoying. Usually all her characters are equally flawed and therefore relatable, so this was a bit more than I liked.
How did your reading go in July?
Goodreads tells me I'm 16 books ahead of schedule which is lovely... and also means I'm going to slow down a bit if I start blogging more :o
All but 3 of my books were read on holiday, exactly as it should be :)
