Another installment of my book reading for you all....it's been good reading here. Do you think reading is a good Winter Sport? Something that can happen more often when the weather is dreary, the days are shorter and quite simply....what's better than a cuppa, a blanket, warm fire and a book? So what's been ticked off my list so far...
Freudian Slip - Marion Von Alderstein
I loved the era this book was set it. It reminded me of that mini series they did on Ita Buttrose and the birth of the magazine Cosmo. All the glorious 60's fashion and women making a mark for themselves in corporate world. It was slow in parts, but the author, who has extensive experience in the copywright industry made all of this just work.
Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L James
Well ladies, I'm not too sure how much to reveal about this one?? I picked this book up on a whim standing in line at Kmart or the like. I flipped it over, read the back....hmmm innocent romantic novel....that'll do. Well hold onto your knickers girls...This is not your average girl meets boy novel. You're in for a bumby ride full of domination, control, bondage, whips and chains, secrets, and psychological desires. Don't say I didn't warn you (or that there are two follow up novels - which of course are now on my "must read" list!)
Persuasion - Jane Austen
After the book above a girl has to take stock and regroup. Nothing like a good Austen novel to do that.
Fifty Shades Darker - E.L James
hmmmm....do I dare!
What's on your list?
Have you joined the Fifty Shades hype?
And do you read more in Winter?
