Other Bookish Things:

I went to my local Waterstones the other day for a decent wander around (usually when I end up there, it’s because I’ve popped in just before I go home). This time I bought a copy of “The Girl on the Train” by Paula Hawkins. When we had the horrendous floods in December 2015, I was coming back from a day trip and got stuck miles from home due to lack of trains and road access. This meant I couldn’t get home for 2 nights but my friend’s mum kindly took me in. She let me read her copy of this book but I only got halfway through and because it was a library book, I couldn’t borrow it. Waterstones had the paperback on offer at half price so I decided to get myself a copy so I can finally finish it!

Other Bookish Things:

I spent the best part of an hour in two separate Waterstones yesterday, having a good look at what was available and discussing books with a bookish friend. I went with a book in mind as I decided I want to read “The Shining” by Stephen King this year as it’s a book I feel I ought to read. I’ve never read any of his work and I’ve only ever watched a film version of “The Green Mile”. So I’ve now bought myself a copy of it!

What I am currently reading:

“Holy Fools” by Joanne Harris

Book(s) purchased this week:

I went to my local Waterstones on my day off and had a browse! I ended up buying “Always the Bridesmaid” by Lindsey Kelk:

"Always the Bridesmaid" by Lindsey Kelk

“Always the Bridesmaid” by Lindsey Kelk

I know it sounds like a trashy romance novel, but I like her “I Heart…” series and I fancied something light hearted for a change!

Other bookish things:

My June Reading Challenge 2015 ended this week, although I didn’t complete it! My progress:

  1. Finish reading at least 2 partly-read books – Unsuccessful!
  2. Read at least 2 unread books (and finish them!) – 2 done!
  3. Re-read at least 1 book which I haven’t already read this year – in the middle of 1!
