January’s Reading List

on January 26, 2016

Way before Christmas I began reading Hester Browne’s Vintage Girl, or Swept off her Feet (Vintage Girl is a such better title, and why does it have two anyway?), I struggled to get in to it, but I think that was my issue, not the book’s. And I just finished it a few days ago. I love Hester Browne books and I think I only have one left to read, but I haven’t ordered it for my kindle yet. I do however have three books waiting on my kindle. Two Jackie Collins books that I got in the Black Friday sales last year and a freebie for a day called The Knokkits, which is written by someone I used to work with.

I don’t really know which to read next. I think I prefer the idea of The Knokkits, but then I don’t want to read two Jackie Collins in a row. Or I could continue with the GRRM collection of Egg and Dunk tales (I’ve read maybe 4 pages so far), but that’s a proper book.

Oh, and whilst trying to declutter, I found an old cupboard with some half read books in – another Jackie Collins, a Jordan/Katie Price book and another one possibly called Scandalous. Firstly, I started reading two of them as easy reading. Super easy reading, but cannot remember them at all so may as well start again. The Jordan/Katie Price one, I only started reading as it was a joke anniversary present from my husband almost 4 years ago. 4! Oh, my, God that must be the longest it’s ever taken me to read a book. Haha. It’s pretty rubbish. I’ll leave that in the book pile. And the other two really should be restarted as I have no idea what they’re about.

So, GRRM, The Knokkits or Jackie Collins? Or, do I download the next ASOIAF that I wanted to reread and put it on my kindle?

The choices, the choices… I think, as I just read a lovely, light, romantic, easy, chick-lit book where I may now be in love with Evie and Robert, the next one should be the collection of Egg and Dunk. Even though it is a proper book and not quite as easy to pick up and put down.

Honestly, if you’re looking for something heavenly happy to read, with pretty obvious couples, but interesting paths to get to the coupling, then read any of Hester’s books. My only real flaw with them is how they end. They are classic fairy tales, I guess, they end with a kiss, an assumption of a relationship and living happily ever after and it leaves me wanting more. After investing in reading, in this example, how Evie and Robert get to know each other and start, I want to see at least a bit of how it plays out. Ooh, and my copy had reading group questions at the end, which I would love to do. If I didn’t have so many other books on my to read list, I’d sit and write essays!

Fluffy romance read, presumably violent fantasy up next!
