I love to read a good book when I get the chance, which is hardly ever since I’ve had three Small people depend on me for everything. But on the odd chance I do get to pick one up I want it to be good!
Sometimes I can even manage to read a whole three pages of it before falling asleep! If you’re looking for some recommendations here are the last three that I really enjoyed reading.
1 – All the Light We Cannot See by Antony Doerr
A poignant story set during the second world war which tells the story of a blind girl living in occupied France and an orphaned German boy who trains for war at a Nazi boarding school. The books shares how their lives are brought together. It was a fascinating and beautifully written book. On the plus side for Mamas, the chapters are really short, a few pages – a character at a time – which makes it very easy to read, whilst still giving a great insight into the realities of day to day life during the second world war. I really enjoyed it!
2 – Why Mummy Drinks by Gill Simms
I was bought this book as a gift, it’s written by hilarious Mummy Blogger Gill Simms. It’s laugh out loud, stop and read a paragraph to Harrogate Papa, funny! I am left wondering if Gill Simms is someone I actually know here in Harrogate, as the portrayal of family life is far too close for comfort! Ha – you’ll love it!
3 – The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Finally this was an uplifting read about a professor on the Asperger’s spectrum as he tries to find a life partner. It’s heart-warming and funny in equal measures and leaves you with a different view of life which is inspiring. It’s well written and makes for a cosy end to a day when you pick it up.
