another 3 for me!

So I've actually been on a bit of a reading roll this last week or so!

I found the Ruth Rendell I knew I'd read - It's called Some lie and some die, another very good one, probably my favourite one so far.

I finished the Jill Mansell - Falling for you. It's rather typical chick lit kind of book but when read along side Secret scripture makes a nice cheerful read. I decided Im rather in a chick lit kind of mood and re-read a couple of my Katie Fforde books. She probably is my favourite author from that genre so I grabbed a couple off the shelf and read Flora's Lot  and I'm currently well into Going Dutch.

I added a childhood favourite on my Kindle after finding it for free - The Secret Garden. The only thing that seems to be happening is my reading list is getting longer,

  1. The Inside Track Jake Humphrey - finished 15.11.12
  2. Daphne - M.C Beaton -03.12.12
  3. Diana - M.C Beaton - finished 18.12.12
  4. Frederica - M.C Beaton - finished 27.12.12
  5. Gently through the mill - Alan Hunter- Finished 25.01.13
  6. Death of an Addict - M.C Beaton - Finished 12.02.13
  7. Is it just me? - Miranda Hart - Finished 18.02.13
  8. Agatha Raisin and the Deadly Dance - MC Beaton - Finished 22.02.13
  9. From Doon with Death - Ruth Rendell - Finished 26.02.13
  10. Crazy in love - Chrissy Manby - Finished 03.03.13
  11. The Best man to die - Ruth Rendell - Finished 13.03.13
  12. Agatha Raisin and the Christmas Crumble/Hells Bells - MC Beaton - Finished 14.03.13

I'm still here just very behind!!!


At last an update from me. I'm fairly sure I've read more than just two as I took a small paperback on holiday -probably a Ruth Rendell and  I've no idea which one and I've been through my book stack and nothing else is jumping out as recently read.

Now I know I've read Murder in the Museum that Steph kindly sent to me. It took a bit of getting going, but it was a very good story once it found some pace. It is part of a series called the Fethering Mysyeries so I will look out for other books by the author too. I've also read a Jill Mansell novel - Nadia Knows best. I read that because sometimes you just need something thats a bit of light reading and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I've read a fair few by Jill Mansell and always enjoyed them.


  1. The Inside Track Jake Humphrey - finished 15.11.12
  2. Daphne - M.C Beaton -03.12.12
  3. Diana - M.C Beaton - finished 18.12.12
  4. Frederica - M.C Beaton - finished 27.12.12
  5. Gently through the mill - Alan Hunter- Finished 25.01.13
  6. Death of an Addict - M.C Beaton - Finished 12.02.13
  7. Is it just me? - Miranda Hart - Finished 18.02.13
  8. Agatha Raisin and the Deadly Dance - MC Beaton - Finished 22.02.13
  9. From Doon with Death - Ruth Rendell - Finished 26.02.13
  10. Crazy in love - Chrissy Manby - Finished 03.03.13
  11. The Best man to die - Ruth Rendell - Finished 13.03.13
  12. Agatha Raisin and the Christmas Crumble/Hells Bells - MC Beaton - Finished 14.03.13
  13. The Thirty Nine Steps - John Buchan - finished 20.03.13
  14. Murder in the museum - Simon Brett - 08.05.13
  15. Nadia Knows best - Jill Mansell - 11.05.13
So that's where I'm at. I've got 4 books on the go too - A parenting book, Sense and Sensibility, Another Gill Mansell called Falling for you and also Secret Scripture. Plenty of variety there!

Happy reading
