#36 Take Six Girls: The Lives of the Mitford Sisters by Laura Thompson

#56 Hands Up

Ooh if you liked that you may like "the mitfords" which was all their letters to each other over the years. Such a fascinating family.

I love reading about The Mitford sisters! I had a mini obsession with them a while back. What incredible lives. The Mitford Girls by Mary S. Lovell is another great book about them.

It was an absolutely fascinating book. I've read two Nancy Mitford books but makes me want read more. The book by Lovell was in the selected biography of this book.

#37 Grief Is The Thing With Feathers by Max Porter

A brilliant novella but very difficult to catergorise.

Blegh, I've gotten bogged down in a non fiction self help book again. It's been weeks since I finished my last fiction book. I think it makes me happy reading to escape, rather than trying to be happy by 'fixing crap' with self help books.

I will start something tomorrow. Loving the suggestions here, my GoodReads list is huge!

I haven't finished a book in ages. I have been reading but excerpts for study. I am slowly re reading one of the GoT's books.

#38 The First Bad Man by Miranda July

I'm really not sure what to say about this. Definitely memorable.

#7 Every Day by David Levithan. Another YA fiction, I enjoyed this, was easy to read and I didn't have to think too much.

I can't remember when I last updated, so I'll just guess...

15. Courting Trouble by Kathy Lette
16. Outback Sisters by Rachael Johns
17. Fleshmarket Close by Ian Rankin
18. Seduction on the Sand by Roxanne St. Claire
19. Scandal on the Sand by Roxanne St. Claire
20. My Soul To Steal by Rachel Vincent
21. Gale Force by Rachel Caine
22. What I Saw by Beck Nicholas
23. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

RipeWickedPlum - if you can, I'd read Lady Midnight (her latest) before The Infernal Devices. It's set five years after City of Heavenly Fire. But then, there are spoilers in the end of City of Heavenly Fire that affect The Infernal Devices series too...so just be warned.

#8 If I stay by Gayle Forman.

This is book one of a three part series so I'm looking forward to reading the next two and seeing where the story goes next.

#10 Killing Floor by Lee Child.
The first of the Jack Reacher books. It was easy reading and an ok storyline. I might try some more from this series at some stage.
