Before I start, thanks so much for all the nice comments on yesterday’s post – very much appreciated.
Despite this morning’s grey skies and lashing rain, I have woken up feeling much more upbeat and determined not to let it all get on top of me. Fingers crossed.
Anyway, onto more interesting stuff. After a few very average reads, I started this last night, hoping for something a bit more unputdownable:
It’s a crime thriller set during last year’s London Olympic Games, and so far it’s just alright, though I’m reserving judgement until I get a bit further into it.
I was lucky enough to get a pre-publication review copy of JoJo Moyes’ new book The One Plus One yesterday in the post, which I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into. I’ve no idea what the story is about, but having absolutely loved Me Before You, I can’t wait to read it. It’s due to be published in hardback next February.
Unusually, they sent me two copies of the book – one for me, and one to pass on (it kinda fits in with the title, I guess – clever marketing). So I decided to give a copy away to one of my readers – if you’d like to win my spare copy, please comment below. I’m afraid it’ll have to be UK only, as it’s a great heavy thing (I know this as I dropped one of them on my foot just after taking the photo for this post!) I will draw the winner’s name out of the virtual hat next Tuesday, the 22nd Oct.
I seem to be on constant catch-up with my Sky Plus at the moment, and one of the shows I’ve been enjoying is Wentworth, which is a remake of the cult 80s hit, Prisoner Cell Block H (anybody else remember that? I used to love it). The new version is somewhat slicker – no wobbling scenery(!) – but still just as soapy and entertaining.
Have you read or watched anything good lately?
