Reading Mojo Returns
April was a good reading month I may not have read many books (3) but for the first time since the children arrived I was wanting to sit down and read for extended periods of time so I think I can say that my reading mojo has finally reappeared. It was just a shame that it coincided with the Easter holidays!
I was also lucky with my choice of books, all three of these are likely to be up there for my favourite book of the year. 'Monstrous Regiment' is up there as one of my favourite of Terry Pratchett's novels. I loved Rumer Godden's 'In this House of Brede', which was April choice for the Cornflower book club. I was thoroughly sucked into the lives of the nuns and several parts of it had me in tears.
I picked up 'Millions like us' by Virgina Nicholson from the library as I had enjoyed her previous book 'Singled Out'. 'Millions like us' is an account of women's experiences in Britain during the Second World War and was fascinating. Now I am reading Kate Chopin's The Awakening for my local bookclub and hoping that the desire to read will hang around.
