I could be a while...

Last weekend Josh played drums alongside our church band at an event in North Wales. As a thank you gift he was given a book voucher.
He bought a Welsh book, but said that I could use the rest.
Walking into a bookshop and knowing I can choose things for free has got to be one of my favourite things!
The women-folk in my family were all raving about how good ‘The Distant Hours’ by Kate Moreton was when we were together at Easter so I knew that was the book I wanted to get. Apparently you simply can’t put it down.

When I got to the shop I saw the book straight away on a display at the front of the shop…and it was on a 3 for 2 offer.
Double Whhhhhooooop!
So along with The Distant Hours, I also bought Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen and Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult.
I’ve heard so many bloggers raving about Water for Elephants I thought I should see what all the fuss was about, and Change of Heart was recommended to me by my sister-in-love

Have you read any of these books? Can you recommend any other books/authors to buy with the rest of the book voucher?
I started reading The Distant Hours yesterday so if I’m not blogging over the next few days you’ll know it’s because I have my nose in a book :)


  1. HA! You still have $$ left? That's a great gift voucher! I've been hearing a lot about The Help by Kathryn Stockett on a lot of blogs, so I just got that from the library. (I had no idea it was so thick!) I can't recommend it from having read it, but I'm curious about it. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with any Karen Kingsbury novel. I absolutely love her books, cry at every one, and am completely sucked in to all her series.

  2. OH, and 1,000 gifts is also highly popular in the blogging community now too. I've started it, and it's pretty great so far.

  3. A girl after my own heart! 2 things I really enjoy (1) gift cards or gift money to shop and (2) a good book or two or three!! Bookstore gift cards are the best. Which that perspective could be why my wardrobe is lacking...
