I have recently read:

Gone Girl
The White Lie
100 year old man
A Street Cat Named Bob
The Poison Tree
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry
Before I go to Sleep
Starlight

I have a kindle and a 4 month old so I'm devouring books like I did when I was a teenager: )

I'm not a 50 shades kind of person and I'd rather not read anything sad.

What would you recommend?

thanks

Our top read recently has been After the Fall by Charity Norman, gripping read set in New Zealand. And we are just reading Ellis Island and City of Hope, (County Mayo and NYC) - engrossing early 1900s. Hope that helps!

I am really enjoying 600 Hours of Edward at the moment.

I second Scottsboro and Restless and would also pitch in anything by William Boyd especially Any Human Heart,

I've just checked out Scottsboro and Restless and they both sound fab! I'll have a look at some of the others too
Thanks: )
