Here is what I am reading now, then and next!


I have just started reading The Pink Hotel by Anna Stothart which I picked up purely on a whim from the library.  Here’s the blurb…

pink hotelA seventeen-year-old London girl flies to Los Angeles for the funeral of her mother Lily, from whom she had been separated in her childhood. After stealing a suitcase of letters, clothes and photographs from her mum’s bedroom at the top of a hotel on Venice Beach, the girl spends her summer travelling around Los Angeles returning love letters and photographs to the men who had known her mother. As she discovers more about Lily’s past and tries to re-enact her life, she comes to question the foundations of her own personality…

I’m really enjoying the LA setting of the book, and finding out more about Lily just as her daughter does. So – so far, so good!

Then…bitter greens

I’ve recently finished two books – the first was Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth which I have reviewed here. I really enjoyed this book, and I also loved The Talented Mr Ripley by Patricia Highsmith which I finished earlier this week – review to come soon!

I have to admit I’m not feeling too excited about either choice, but I hope to be surprised!

What are you reading now, then and next?
