boyfriend Tom happy. But obviously not quite happy enough.

Top 10 Tuesday

Top 10 Tuesday is hosted by, THE BROKE AND THE BOOKISH! Each week they have a different top 10!
This weeks top 10 is:- I WOULD RECOMMEND THE MOST! 

To tell you the truth I have not read many books, but the ones I have  read I will recommend!

1.   About a boy by Nick Hornby. This has to be one of my all time favourite books! Not only was the book brilliant but the film lived up to expectations too!

2.   Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden.  I loved this book and got totally lost in the story! Shame the film was not as good as the book! :(

3.   Of mice and men by John Steinbeck.  This is a book I read a school but will always have a place in my heart!

4.   The Beach by Alex Garland. Another one I recommend as I got totally lost in this book as well.

5.   The white tiger by Aravind Adiga.  I read this at a book group and would recommend this but not his next novel.

6.   The girl with the dragon tattoo by Stieg Larsson.  Another enjoyable read.

7. The poison tree by Erin Kelly.  This was a book that I had heard about from Waterstones and they were having a signing. I have automatically fallen in love with the way that Erin writes.

8.   The sick rose by Erin Kelly. 

9. Blood Brothers by Josephine Cox.  I love her books and just recently finished this one, a real page turner!

10. The trap by Kimberley Chambers. I haven't even finished this book yet but I would already recommend it! I just can't put it down!

Well that is my top 10 recommendations, I hope you find something you will enjoy reading from my list! :)

what have I been up to?

It has been a while again since I last posted so this is a quick update and to remind myself what I have been doing!

On Saturday 23rd Feb I went to Waterstones in Romford and got my book signed by the lovely Kimberley Chambers.


She has done many books and is know as the next Martina Cole! Kimberley was promoting her next trilogy starting with "The Trap"


Really looking forward to reading it and it is next on my list! :)


Last Saturday 2nd March I also met the gorgeous Laura Ziepe at Romford Waterstones! (how lucky am I, two lovely authors in a row!)
Laura's book is "Essex girls" which I also cannot wait to read! Laura was a lovely person to meet and defiantly has her head screwed on. She was supposed to appear in the series TOWIE (The Only Way Is Essex) however she pulled out. I think that she made the right decision in my opinion and I wish her every happiness for her wedding day! :)



Last but not least I entered a comipetion on twitter @TescoBooks and I won a copy of "wonders of life" by Brian Cox. The pictures in it are truly beautiful and I cannot wait to read this either!




That's it for now. Thanks for reading xx
