Books 34 -37

Paw Tracks in the Moonlight by Denis O'Connor
Format - Kindle.

Complete change of pace from preceding book. This delightful gentle book tells of the story of a man and his cat - from a daring rescue of a tiny kitten to adventures shared through the cats life. The stories are told with humour and whimsy and it really is a lovely read.

His Good Opinion: A Mr Darcy Novel by Nancy Kelley
Format - Kindle.

This takes 'Pride and Prejudice' and tells it from Darcy's perspective - the complete novel from the other side. Well written with a enough of the original dialogue to appeal to Austen fans and the language of Darcy's story slots into place very well. It is lovely to read how he saw Elizabeth's behaviour, how he reacts to Mr Collin's and Lady Catherine. So many P&P spin offs disappoint but this one doesn't.

Before I Go to Sleep by S. J Watson
Format - Kindle

Forget the hype - read the book! Not my normal choice of book at all - but it really is a good read. By the time I was getting toward the end I couldn't put it down - even abandoning the family at the breakfast table so I could read a bit more!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
Format - Kindle.

Finally read it instead of listening to it - just as good. A lovely follow on from 'His Good Opinion' I love this book to bits.
