    This is one of my favourite books! Quirky, definitely a bit weird and out there, funny in its own way.

    Default Books of 2015

    @Jensha you have no idea how grateful I am for these threads!!! I had all of my lists on my phone, which recently got completely destroyed and I didn't have the lists backed up anywhere but here, so I've managed to go back and get them all!! Thank you thank you xxx I was so sad when I thought I'd lost them!
    So now all I'm missing is a few I can't remember from August-September this year, but here's what I CAN remember-

    August

    This house is haunted- john boyne
    New ways to kill your mother- Colm Toibin
    The house of silk- Anthony Horowitz


    September

    Alignment matters- Katy Bowman
    Murder in Mississippi- John Saffran

    I actually may have only read those two in September, I started about 4 other books that didn't really grab me. No real stand outs for Aug-Sep unfortunately!

    Yeah I fall asleep if I read at bedtime! I read while putting the kids down (on my phone), when DD naps and in the evenings but not close to bedtime.

    Default Books of 2015

    I'm in! I have never been a reader, but being stuck in hospital with DD for days on end (a week at a time usually, minimum 5 days), I just had to find something else to do other than play on my phone. Apart from using all my data allowance, it gets boring. I can't fill a whole day in on my phone. For years I've thought 'I must get into reading'...and it took DD getting sick for it to happen! So here goes:

    October
    Dirt Music by Tim Winton

    November
    Three Dog Night by Peter Goldsworthy

    I'm quite proud of myself for getting through Dirt music. First time I've finished a book since high school! I really enjoyed it.

    I'm working my way through Liane Moriartys novels at the moment and really enjoying them! I read ebooks on my phone with a black screen and white text and seem to be able to finish a book faster than i ever have before! I just wish i knew how to access new release/modern ebooks for free!!
