I did loads of reading on holiday, and really started to get quite well with my Kindle – much better than I ever thought I would. Although real books will always be my preference, I can see that eReaders have their place, too.
I read a total of 7 books while I was away, and my favourites were these two:
A real page-turning thriller. I finished this on the plane on the way home, and it made the flight go past in the flash. It’s the first in a series, so I’m looking forward to reading the next one now.
Loved this story about a girl who goes to work as a nanny for a very rich London family, set during the beginning of the credit crunch. This book is more meaty than the title would have you believe, and the characters were all brilliantly written. Highly recommended.
I’m currently reading this, which is just OK. As you’d imagine from the cover, really. Easy reading, and brief moments of humour.
Watching-wise, I’ve been catching up with my Sky Plus this week. I’m still a couple of episodes behind on The White Queen.
I’m not loving it as much as I thought I would (it’s certainly not anywhere near as compelling as The Tudors, for me), and I’m finding it difficult to follow exactly who is who, and what their claim on the throne is. And it’s not just me being thick, Ashley said the same.
Is anybody else watching this? What do you think of it?
