Just finished TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. I don't know how I missed reading this book before now, but I'm happy to say I have rectified that problem! And wow, what a book! Fantastic. I absolutely LOVE that it's all from the perspective of the little girl, Scout.

My latest reads, after gruelling months of exams:

'The Sunne in Splendour'- Sharon Penman
Amazing novel of Richard III, and so well researched.

'The Number One Ladies Detective Agency'- Alexander McCall Smith
Absolutely loved this one, so different

'Holy Fools' Joanne Harris
A different sort of concept that really got me in, and was very unpredictable

'The Collaborator' Margaret Leroy (published as 'The Soldier's Wife' in the US)
A love story set during the German occupation of Gurnsey
Currently composing a sprawling family saga set in 19th century England

Right this second I’m reading “City of Ashes” by Cassandra Clare. It’s an awesome book filled with romance and fun stuff. I highly recommend reading it.

Just finished PROPHECY OF DAYS - a YA novel by Christy Raedeke. It's book 1 from the Daykeeper's Grimoire.
I really enjoyed it, and I don't usually read YA. It has to do with a lot of ancient Mayan mysticism. Pretty good read!
