I seem to have read lots, but finished very little in November, but it was the month I had decided to tackle the ‘big book’ Anna Karenina.
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
One man’s desire to stay forever unblemished by time or the world, ends up with him losing his soul to vanity and murder.
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy.
Everyone warned me it would take me months to read this book and I started reading it already overcome by the task, however I am already over half way through and I am passionately in love with it. A beautifully written book will always read well and quickly no matter how long it may be. Review to follow when I have finished it.
Stepping Into The Wilderness by Susan Carter Payne
This is a pre-published copy from Netgalley. Lovingly written short chapters are followed lots of ideas to help you develop what you have read into something that is not only beautiful, but also purposely built just for you. This is a dipping-in-and-out of book, rather than a reading from beginning to end book and as such it will take me some time to finish it.
The Circle of Stones~ A Woman’s Journey to Heal Herself by Judith Duerk
I have had this book on my bookcase since the beginning of the year, but was prompted to pick it up and I have not been disappointed, just wish I had picked it up earlier. There are two things about this book that you might like to know before you rush put and buy it; it is a dipping-in-and-out of book and I think you need to be in the right place on your life’s journey to really ‘get-it’, appreciate it beautiful words. Review to follow – eventually.
The Unknown Bridesmaid by Margaret Forster
This is the library book group read for the month of November and although not a bad book, I am struggling to give it time. This is the kind of book i would call a ‘Bank holiday book’ – you start it on Friday and you finish it on Monday and by Tuesday you will be on to something else forgetting what the book was all about. Being up against Anna K on my reading list doing it any favours either. Not a bad book for what should have been a quick read. Review to follow.
