It’s Monday What Are You Reading? . . . Etc!

Another Monday has crept up on us however this Monday is known to most as a beloved Bank Holiday or lets just say an extra day off work. Not for myself however! Back to work I go without complaint however (well only a little!) as I have had a lovely relaxing weekend off work which is rare. Hitting the gym a couple of times this week has definitely made me feel slightly better even though I should have gone yesterday with or without company! With the motivation set as ‘going to a hot country (and wearing as little clothes as respectable!) things really do need to start taking shape. Not being a fan of diets I am going for the everything in moderation way of life – this may prove difficult!

Evian 1Litre

I know, I know – it is no fun but hey! No pain, no gain! Not exactly that the reduction in such treats is painful (only slightly) but i’m sure it will help!



Currently Reading

Mr Penumbras 24 hour bookstore

There have been some not so great reviews for this book however I am in loving it so far. There is something about the mystery of the book and without that predictability the excitement grows. This book has me reminiscing about The End of Mr Y by Scarlett Thomas. Review will be written once finished!


Sophie Kinsella Wedding Night

This book was received with this exact cover in a Hardback edition. When the sleeve was removed I found a white hardback book which I think really fit the whole wedding title. As always with Kinsella from start to finish I loved this book . Even though slightly predictable it was that good kind. Review will be up soon.

On The Back Burner . . .

The Lost are of keeping secrets by Eva Rice

This book is on my nightstand at the moment – I will be the first to admit that my reading of this book was flippant from the start and at best sporadic and not much has changed. I am sure that over the next couple of weeks I will dip in and out of this book however I cannot see me sticking with it over time. Hopefully I will get to the end. This is part of the book list on The Vintage Book Group’s reading list – check it out and if you like what you see join in.

the mystery of mercy close by marian keyes

This book has been relegated to the bathroom – on the toilet or in the bath and this book is what surfaces. Not that I spend that long on the toilet but it is a good refresher read. The end will come eventually!

To Read ASAP


Caught up in the hype I picked this up and cannot wait to read it.


Ashamedly I will admit I bought this partly because I wanted to read the book before I saw the film and that is still a strong possibility however the driving force behind the first book purchase made in a long while is the beauty of the cover. Now the digital images doesn’t quite get the beauty across so pop to the shops and see for yourself!

Moving on . . .


Curly Comeback

My curls are slowly making a comeback and the front of my hair is starting to actually curl which puts a big smile on my face. There is still a long way to go but progress has been made. My hair is softer than ever and conditioning regularly really does make a difference. All I need now is the confidence to rock out with my bushy head!

For now I will leave you with this tune! Hair related of course!



One thought on “It’s Monday What Are You Reading? . . . Etc!

  1. I LOVE bushy hair. Always have. I have two boys with totally kinky hair, and my daughter had very curly thick hair. Rock those curls, girl – rock them. 😉
