Hello my friends , I have not been on here in ages and I have to say I have missed it .
My weekly chats and catch ups have been gone for too long and it’s about time that was rectified. So I thought I would start my September posts very late with what I am reading this week .
If you have been following my posts for a while you may know that I have read Persuasion by Jane Austen before , it was not until recently when I saw the film featuring Sally Hawkins as Anne Elliott that renewed my love in these characters and I do so love Sally’s portrayal of Anne , she IS Anne in my imagination , that moment when Captain Wentworth helps her into the carriage and takes her hand is the sweetest moment ..... sigh ........ just beautiful .
Anyway let’s get on with what else I am reading
Miss Boston and Miss Hargreaves by Rachel Malik
Happy By Design by Victoria Harrison
Persuasion by Jane Austen
The Mayan Prophecy by Steve Alten

I got some bargains recently and another beautiful Persephone book . I am waiting on others but for now I thought I would show you these goodies .
Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn, I saw the trailer for the show and it looks amazing . I hope it will come out in dvd .
This cover is stunning .
The next book I am really excited to show you is The Meg by Steve Alten , the book has been made into a film that is being released here this week featuring Jason Statham as the main character . I am very fond of shark stories so this one immediately peeked my interest . I am already about half way through this and it’s SO good! This is a must read for any fans of Jaws .
Happy by Fearne Cotton is a beauty of a book , inside and out . I had read this before from the library but I was thrilled to get my very own copy for a bargain when shopping . Fearne has a great way of talking about mental health and wellbeing and if this is something that interests you then check out her books and journal .
Greengates by R C Sherriff arrived looking elegant , as all Persephone books do .... they are a complete joy to find in my mailbox. I can’t wait to read this , I really enjoyed A Fortnight In September by the same author .

This is the delightful tale of one family and their annual trip to the seaside . The family consists of the parents and two sons and a daughter , the mother is a housewife , a nervous woman who wants to see her family happy no matter the cost to herself , two of the children are almost grown up and looking for independence and then there is the younger brother too . This is not a book of high adventure , what makes this book so moreish is the little details of this family’s life , from their own thoughts to their daily rigmarole, it makes remarkably addictive reading and although like I said there is not much that happens you do genuinely care for each of the characters and want to know more about them . The author is exceptional at showing you the characters , flaws and all , in a special way , tiny details showing us a lot more about them overall then we first think . The plot is a simple one and the pace is gentle so it makes for a lovely Sunday afternoon read , but it will stay with you long after you finish the last page . Beautiful .
