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


proofI’m very near to finishing The Proof of Love by Catherine Hall. It’s quite an unusual book – lots about sheep! – but the characters are fascinating and I’m enjoying it a lot so far. I reckon I’ll be done with it later today and will write a review when I can.



I finally got round to reading Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, which was actually better than I had expected – I thought it would be a lot fluffier but actually it’s quite gritty and very sad in places.

I also recently finished The Marrying of Chani Kaufmann by Eve Harris, which I really enjoyed – with a few reservations! The book gave a really interesting insight into the lives of orthodox Jews living in north London – and it was quite funny too. Review to come tomorrow.


perfectI need to read Perfect by Rachel Joyce for my October book group in a few weeks. I also have Patrick Gale’s new book A Place Called Winter waiting to be read – he is one of my favourite authors so that is definitely near the top of my To Be Read list! 

What are you reading now, then and next?



    1. Oh shearing, herding, being bitten by dogs – there was tons for the author to talk about! I would also highly recommend Repercussions by Catherine Hall which I read earlier this year and thought was brilliant.
