Things you may not know about me #1

I’m a book worm. I really really LOVE a good book. Before I had my gorgeous little girl I would easily get through 2-3 books a week. When I was 8 my mum found me sat upstairs reading my (much older) sisters copy of The Colour Purple. I didnt understand it but that made no difference to me.. I craved the excitement of a new story from that young age. I have been through many phases in my 28 years most typically loving the romance novels and teen high school books when I was at school. Did any of you read The babysitters club series? Haha. Now I read most genres as long as they are well written and manage to grip me in the first chapter although I do have a special fondness for crime thriller writers such as Harlan Coben and James Patterson and will read anything they write. I thought I would put a list of my absolute favourite reads of the past few years :

The shadow of the wind- Carlos Ruis zafon
The hunger games – Suzanne Collins..Its been a long time since a series of books excited me so much.
The I heart series – Lindsey Kelk is amazing. I love all her books but particularly the ones based on Angela Clark.
Linwood Barclay – No time for goodbye
The kite runner- Khaled Hosseini
Tell no one – Harlan Coben
The Lovely bones- Alice Sebold
The time travellers wife- Audrey Niffenegger
A piece of cake- Cupcake Brown

My guilty pleasure – Sophie Kinsellas shopaholic series.
