I saw this tag over at Books, Biscuits & Tea and as I quite like taking part in a tag post every now and again I thought I’d try this one. It also adds some variety to my posts.
I’d seen The Martian reviewed on a couple of other blogs last week and then happened across it in a local charity shop so I couldn’t resist when it comes with such glowing recommendations.
I bought Daphne du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn actually at the Jamaica Inn museum on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall for £12.99. It had to be done right?
The Great Gatsby is still unread on my TBR pile although I have seen the movie but that doesn’t really count. The book’s narrated by Nick Carraway.
Jodi Picoult is fairly a new author to me having only read 2 or 3 of her books. The Storyteller is an amazing book which I read over a Bank Holiday weekend. Contrast that with The Night Circus which took me 2 weeks to read because I just found it so slow and was constantly waiting for something to happen.
My photo doesn’t do my pretty cover justice I’m afraid. The Monogram Murders is embossed and gold and very glamourous and still unread!
Contrast that with Simon Kernick’s Wrong Time, Wrong Place which being a Quick Read is 112 pages long and is still to be read.
Gray Mountain is Grisham’s latest legal thriller.
I’ve enjoyed all of Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon series, it doesn’t bother me that they may not be factually or historically correct; I enjoy them for what they are – fast paced action!
The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society is a truly lovely read and one of my favourite books that I’ve discovered this year. It’s a real feel good read!
Whereas A Thousand Splendid Suns is a difficult and heart-breaking read and one which I read a couple of years ago but do want to read again.
So there we go, The Opposites Book Tag, what do you think of my choices? What would you have picked?
I won’t be tagging any other bloggers to participate as we all have busy lives and different agendas for our blogs, but if you do carry the tag on do let me know as I’d love to hear your replies 🙂
