Finished this book yesterfay and thoroughly enjoyed it. It took me a while to read but when i picked it up again a couple of days ago I got through it quickly

I had no idea about the history of that area so it was made me grateful to be living in this time and place. The strength of the characters was admirable and Lisa See is a great storyteller as always

Now for something completely different I'm going to read a book book rather than an audiobook or a ebook. Been years since I read one of this author's books but not because I don't normally love them!! Just because I haven't

I started reading this because I wanted a change of pace and it is definitely that, but I'm not sure I'm enjoying it. Lots of reasons I should like it (pkus sized heroine is just one)and yet....

Finding a book for the prompt of United kingdom was never going to be an issue given my love of historical fiction. The problem was always going to be which one to choose. In the end I picked this book because it us partially set in Sheffield which is where I lived in the late 90s for four years

I interrupt my baking to bring you my #letstravelaugust with a very non baking book

Earlier this week Paullina Simons was in town for an event with Heather Morris so it seems fitting to post their books so closely together even though I didn't go to the event. I don't recall reading many books set in Poland that aren't about WWII.

Once upon a time I used to have unbreakable rules when it came to books. One of those was about always reading series in order. Looks like all the rules are being broken in the interests of just managing to read anything. #romance #unusualbehaviour
