March has definitely marched on and is almost done and we have had some lovely weather and it has given me the chance to get out in the garden. Potatoes and onions are all planted now and various veg and herb seeds have been sown, had a good picking of Rhubarb and I can see my asparagus shooting.
So onto the books I have read this week…
I have had The Nowhere Child by Christian White on my Netgalley shelf and I fancied reading it. This story was about a child who had been missing for over 20 years and is told in a Then and Now format. It was intriguing and had a few surprises, at times emotional and definitely a book that had a few twists. A good read and one I would recommend.
I then read Rabette Run by Nick Rippington for the upcoming Blog Tour. I have read his Boxer Boys series and thoroughly enjoyed them, Rabette Run is nothing like those books, this is a story is about Emerson Rabette and his Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and also of a past event. A fast paced read that the showed a disorder at its extremes. Excellent read.
I was so glad to go back to Cockleberry Bay, The Gift of Cockleberyy Bay by Nicola May is the third book in the series and I loved catching up with the regular characters and this book sees big decisions, secrets and starts with a storm. Love this series and cant wait to share my review as part of the Blog Tour.
Audio-Books this week were…
I finished The Secret Garden by Francis Hodgson Burnett, this was a childhood favourite. I did find that as an adult this was still a brilliant book, but I was aware that some things did make me wince. It is a story that does have some remarks that would now be considered to be racist, but this is often the case with books.
I have now just started to listen to Romeo and Juliet, this, like The Secret Garden, is free to listen to on Audible Stories. This version of Romeo and Juliet is a dramatised version and I do admit it makes it easier to digest with Joseph Fiennes, Maria Miles and Elizabeth Spriggs as part of the cast.
Well, that is me done for another week. Have a good week everyone and take care of yourselves
