It's Monday- what are you reading?

I've read a few good books this week. I have a soft spot for Danielle Steel books- even though she writes using a well tried formula approach and usually has a nice happy ending! HRH had been on the bookshelf forever- which is unusual here. The princess took a year out from her responsibilities to help out in an Aids clinic in Africa. She falls in love with a doctor- but he couldn't possibly be suitable for royal life!!!! It wasn't my favourite Danielle Steel- but was a nice comfy read.

I also read a new author to me- Alex Kava. The ebook club I belong to, provided the first in the series. It follows an FBI profiler and it was a real page turner. I've already bought the next 3 in the series on kindle!

My favourite book was Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan. I totally immersed myself in the story and didn't want it to end. I loved every page - and the recipes sounded delicious. It was borrowed from the library- but think I need a copy of this one for my bookshelf! I loved it so much that I had to buy her latest one about a sweet shop before I finished- so that I had that one to look forward to!

I have nearly finished an autobiography by Pauline Quirke- an actress in the UK, who recently lost a lot of weight using Lighter Life. It is mainly an account of her weight loss- with a bit of her life history. It has been a good read even if it isn't what i was expecting.

I've had all the recipe books out this weekend to plan a few new meals. We went to a new local supermarket yesterday to buy a few different ingredients and hope to try a few new recipes this week!


  1. I loved Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe - one of my fave books from last year - I bought her new one the day ir came out but haven't read it yet.

  2. There is something wonderful about books that include recipes, isn't there?!
