Well January flew by in haze of wet and windy days. At last February has arrived and with the second day of sunshine and blue skies here in Suffolk I can almost smell spring. Inspired by the idea from Laura of Circle of Pines to read a book a month, I have ended most of my evenings throughout January reading Bonkers by Jennifer Saunders. This was an adventure through the comedienes life and a thoroughly enjoyable one too. Although Jennifers writing seemed a little erratic at times but what more would you expect from a comic genius. In the early days writing down their sketches were not part of their work, but as soon as French & Saunders worked for auntie beeb suddenly pen and paper were required. It is clear that Jennifers head is bursting with ideas that occasionally pour out, I imagine in the same way she has shared her life in Bonkers.
So time to chose another book. This months choice is a recommendation from Lucy, my eldest daughter. I had picked this book up from the library for her having read alot about it before Christmas as it was released as a film. Being keen to share books with my children I am really excited as Lucy gets older that we can share books, having already encouraged her to read The Help, To Kill a Mockingbird and some of Cecelia Aherns books. So for Februarys book I will be reading How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff.
For more reading inspiration pop over to Lauras blog to see what the rest of the group are reading this month and what we read last month.
Until next time, take care.
