Talking ‘bout BOOKS

‘Lillians Story’ by Kate Grenville was interesting, the first two chapters all about her growing up with the despicable father in ‘Dark Places’. I much preferred the last chapter where she was roaming the streets of Sydney.
I’m loving ‘Falling Angels’ by Tracy Chevalier, (she wrote ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ which I haven’t read). Subject is set in England in 1901 – 1910 each chapter has the characters telling the story. Trouble is when it’s a book that is good I can’t put it down & seem to read it very quickly – hope I don’t get indigestion!

My latest buy (from ebay) is ‘The book of Mah Jong’ by Amy Lo. Just right for our next game.

Ooh, I've got Falling Angels in my bookcase waiting to be read. Must get to it soon - sounds good.
