Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I really love but haven't talked about in a while 22.3.16
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists over there at The Broke and the Bookish. I'd love to share my lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Oh what a lovely top ten this week! Books I love but haven't talked about in a while, this just basically means an excuse to talk about my favourite books right? Well you know what that means.... No numbers this week, I don't want to be showing any favouritism! If you're going away over easter then you might find a few recommendations here for an easter read or two to brighten up your weekend...
The Yorkshire Pudding club by Milly Johnson, I saw a copy of this the other night and finally spoke about it again after ages. I'm hankering after a re-read of this one as it cheered me up so much when I read it, audible here I come!
Take a Look at Me Now by Miranda Dickinson (does anyone else sing as they read out that title?) I talk about Fairytale of New York and Meet me in Manhattan ALL the time, but I loved this read as well and this book meant that I met Miranda for the first time too!
Darcy Burdock series by Laura Dockrill. No I haven't read book four yet despite having purchased it as soon as it came out *searches Amazon to find the date* woops! Such a fun series and definitely something to keep you entertained as a whole family, my library has the audiobook, yours might too!
The Accident by CL Taylor. I think I read this around Easter time too as I remember my Dad's birthday (which is next week) I couldn't go out to dinner until this was finished as I had 17 pages left. If you haven't read this one yet-you must!
All the Single Ladies by Jane Costello. I pressed this one onto my Mum and it wasn't until then that I remembered what an awesome book this was, proper laugh-out-loud comedy as well!
Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding. I read the most recent instalment of this around my MUM's birthday (it's a good way of keeping track of where/when you read books) and I was reminded of how much I love Bridget. I must read this again soon!
I Heart New York by Lindsey Kelk. I love Angela and I really really want to read about her adventure to the Big Apple again soon especially since I've just booked a trip there!
The Baby Group by Rowan Coleman. This was one of the books I read the summer I was unemployed and literally down to my last few books, between Rowan, Lindsey Kelk, Miranda Dickinson, Milly Johnson and Sophie Kinsella, my summer was made. An awesome early novel!
How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran. I recently downloaded the latest novel from Moran 'Moranifesto' and was reminded how much I loved this book. I read it on a return journey to Glasgow on a very hot and sticky train one July (near my friend's birthday-see again!) and I remeber gushing about it to her as I got off the train. The reading reminds me of being slightly tipsy and sunburnt, classic combination, and made me feel empowered!
A special mention to all jenny Colgan novels. I feel like I haven't spoken about this author in a while and I love her funny books. Hers was also the very first novel I blogged about on here just over 3 years ago (yes I missed my Blogaversary I know!) and so I want to mention all of her books!
Ok I'm feeling the need to re-read all of these books now-good job it's the Easter holidays coming up, school won't mind if I don't do any work right?
