Simply Unforgettable – Mary Balogh

I’ve been on holiday to the beach – so a beach read.

This is one of the better Regency Romances that I have read. There is quite a bit of sex – so not for the faint hearted! The period details were great – nothing jarred as being out of place. So if you like Gerogette Heyer, but are after something a bit racier this is for you.

Here is Mary Balogh’s website – http://www.marybalogh.com/

Under Pressure – Carl Honore

I’m a parent (if you didn’t know), so I read this book. It is great – a very easy read and it will make you feel better about your children spending hours playing in the sandpit or mixing all of their puzzle pieces up because the pieces are really lollies and they’re having a tea party.

It’s about that idea that as a parent you will be a complete failure if you don’t organise enough learning experiences for your child – music lessons, ballet, art, etc. The thing that I have taken away from this book is that ‘true talent will out’ and that a bit of free time is a wonderful thing (for both children and parents).

Next in the book pile Looking for Anne  of Green Gables: The Life and Times of LM Montgomery by Irene Gammel.
