March Review Round Up

March was a bit messy this year – I was away in Tasmania for a week, then there was the 2016 Melbourne International Garden Show to attend, and of course, Easter. I read some great books this month though:

****  “Anyone can get an A+: How to Beat Procrastination, Reduce Stress and Improve Your Grades” by Geetanjali Mukherjee

****  “fearLESS: How to Conquer Your Fear, Stop Playing Small, and Start Living an Extraordinary Life You Love” by Nathalie Thompson

***1/2 “Bogman” by R. I. Oulfsen

***** “The Last Second Chance” by Jim Nesbitt

**** “The Wisdom of Bees” by Erik Berrevoets

***** “On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft” by Stephen King

A+

A wonderful read

The Bookshop BookNow I know that I have a separate page on this blog for all of the books I read in 2015, but this one was so wonderful that it deserves a separate post. My friend and author Erik Berrevoets gave me this book for Christmas. It is Jen Campbell’s “The Bookshop Book” and is a must-read for anyone who loves bookshops.  It is full of magical descriptions of weird, wonderful and totally normal bookshops, heart-felt anecdotes from authors, book shop owners and book nuts alike, and wonderful facts about books and book sellers.  I spent half of the time dreaming about opening my own bookshop – I could have a theme one, maybe just sell horror books, or crime books, maybe cookbooks.  Maybe I could have one that just sold books about animals – I could call in Fauna Nation!  Or maybe I should finish the current draft of my children’s book first and see how I go with that goal first.  I really recommend you look at this one.
