A slight obsession with books

Crafts, cats and books

2015 reading challenge link up party – March


We’ve decided to just post monthly for this challenge from now on, with the posts being on the first Sunday of the month. Rachel has other commitments taking her away from reading at the moment and it’ll let both of us have a bit more content to our posts.

I’ve managed to read another three for the challenge taking my total up to 10/53.

A book with a number in the title
Three amazing things about you by Jill Mansell

mansellthreeI did have another book down for this prompt but when this one turned up, I thought it would do nicely. I’d had it on reserve at the library for ages so was delighted when it finally got to my turn as I usually enjoy this author. I liked this one a lot. I didn’t love it, but it was a sweet, enjoyable read.

A book with a colour in the title
Black roses by Jane Thynne

thynneblackThis is another prompt where I’d intended to read something already on my To Be Read pile, but again, when this one arrived from the library, it fitted the prompt so I decided to use it. My friend is sending me the second book in this series and as I’m incapable of reading books out of order, I reserved this one from the library so I could read it first. It’s set during WWII, in Berlin and was a very good read. I’m looking forward to the second instalment now.

A non-fiction book
The politics of washing: real life in Venice by Polly Coles

colesveniceThis has been on my Kindle for ages. I can’t resist anything set in Venice as I still remember our amazing holiday there back in the nineties. This was an interesting read which I quite enjoyed. It was written by someone who spent a year living in Venice. It has some Venetian history in it, and tells what normal life is like there for people who have to go to work and school among all the tourists.

I’ve also read the first book in the quartet that I’m reading for the Trilogy prompt, but I’ll post that once I’ve completed all four books.

Linking up to Rachel for the challenge party.
