In 'Surrounded by Water' Elizabeth tragically loses her husband in an accident and as she is coping with his death she finds out her marriage wasn't all that it seemed.
I honestly didn't think I would like this book that much but I read it in one day so I must have liked it quite a lot. It is Stephanie Butland's debut novel. Stephanie Butland is quite an interesting woman as she has battled cancer and is thriving after the experience.
An easy read that emphasizes a fact I've always known: "All men are pigs."
This book is the one I take to the gym to read on the treadmill because it is easy to pick up and put down. And when I get mad about the man in the book, I pedal faster and take my anger out on the bike therefore burning more calories.
Danielle Steel is a seasoned writer and has the formula sorted to keep you entertained. Power Play explores how men and women are different in the work place when in powerful roles ie the CEO of a big company. Sexism in the workplace is an interesting topic and you've got to hand it to these ladies who work full time and raise their kids and be a wife and a friend etc.
I always like to have a non-fiction on the go at the same time as my fiction but since this can be an unrealistic task, I made Lisette read it for me:
Are you a lucky person? Do you win the picnic raffle every year? Yes? Well then I hate you! I never win anything! I always assumed it was because I stood on too many cracks as a kid or because no pixies ever pooped in my tea. I get really mad that I am unlucky. It really ticks me off. For years I have wanted to get to the bottom of this luck thing and prove once and for all that it does or doesn't exist. Thanks to The Improbability Principle by David Hand I am much closer to this goal! Hand explores the scientific probability of luck and miracles. Ever wondered why lightning is likely to strike the same spot twice? Or why you bump into friends when on holiday in a foreign country? Hand explains it all. Interesting reading!
"Why do I have to get married? I didn't do anything wrong?"
Blossom Street Brides is about marriage and it also has heaps of stuff about knitting in it. I don't think I got the knitting references because I don't know how to knit or care about knitting but if you do then you will like the beginning of each chapter.
This book is American but it seems very English - the whole small village town thing. This book is an easy read for when you want to lie on your bed and relax under all the covers with a nice steaming hot cup of tea next to you and maybe some chocolate......
