When I was pregnant it was oh-so-easy to decide what to read. Manuals. I reads heaps of heaps of book telling what to do, what not to do, what to expect, what to feel, think and believe (expectant mothers of the world unit and burn your Gina Ford – release yourself from the chains). No number of manuals will help you with motherhood. You just gotta learn on the job as it were…
…but that’s a whole other post.
Anyhow, I am an ardent read. I am not at all discerning and will read anything from Jackie Collins to Jane Austen and everything in-between. I love discovering new treasures, books that spark a flame and stay with you. Books that you want to fling into someone else’s hand exclaiming “you must read this!”
However, I find now that I have little patience for trash and I want to read books that speak to me and that are not too difficult to concentrate on through the mental clutter of my life.
So the idea for a monthly (if I can read that fast) book list of recommendations from me and other mums. Books that you really rate. Books to read by the pool (if only!), books to read in bed, books to re-read. Let’s share the library of love.
I have decided on a few loose themes. So please please if you have read anything fantastic lately let us know.
Re-worked Fairy Stories
If you can think of anymore themes that would appeal to you, just tell us.
