This is where I'll be summarising my reads during the past week and talking about what I plan to read in the following week.
Last weeks reads (links to my reviews)
The Fourth Bear by Jasper Fforde
A Christmas Carol and other Writings by Charles Dickens
Planning to read this week
Mustn't Grumble by Terry Wogan (already started and planning to wild release next weekend)
"Veteran broadcaster Terry Wogan, or 'Sir Terry' as he insists on his family calling him, knows very well that 'veteran' is just a euphemism for 'clapped out', and he'd be just as pleased if you'd pack it in!....."
The Memory Box by Margaret Forster (bookcrossing ray)
"A mother leaves her baby daughter a mysterious, sealed box before she dies. Years later, when Catherine opens her mother's box- the 'Memory Box'- she finds it full of strange, unexplained objects, carefully wrapped and numbered, like clues to a puzzle. Catherine never knew her mother, but her idealized images, as the 'perfect', beautiful and talented woman that the rest of her family remembers, has cast a long shadow over her life. As she tries to solve the mystery of the box of secrets, she is pulled into the past and yo her mother's story, which reveals a woman far more complex, surprising and dangerous than the family legend has allowed. And in turn Catherine, fiercely independent and self-absorbed, discovers unexpected truths about herself."
Smith of Wootten Major by J.R.R. Tolkein (bookcrossing ring)
