What I Read this Summer!!

The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor
It was good! A bit rushed it took place over 13 years.
It is, surprise surprise, the first in a trilogy.
Definintly an insightful look into Wonderland.

One Day by David Nicholls
I really enjoyed this book.
I can completely understand why it's such a hit.
As a women who hasn't had some type of Dexter?
As a man who hasn't had an Emma?
A book that shows life over a period of time, that is so very like real life.

The Help By Kathryn Stockett
A very insightful story!
I really enjoyed this book.
It tugged at my heartstrings.
I'm not surprised by the popularity of this book.
Will be seeing the movie when it comes out in October! (UK)

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl I'm not sure how I made it through my childhood without reading this.
It is a must.
It's a fun entertaining read, better then both the movies!!

I also did a little re-reading:
Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan
Just as sweet as the first time I read it.
I'd love to bake for people so this book appeals to me!
Will probably be re-read again and again!

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
(never again)
I thought the first book was ok.
I now know the rest of the series is dumb.
So, I shouldn't have ruined the first book by re-reading it.
Too late.

Souless by Gail Carrigner I liked it enough to read it again.
Not sure if I will continue with the series though.
Time will tell!

Cupcakes at Carrington’s by Alexandra Brown {book review}

Every month a blog I follow hosts a book club, but the books chosen all have to do with food. Particularly baking. It’s very similar to ...
