Day of the Triffids - John Wynham

really rather scary.. possibly not as scary as the kracken but that might have been because I was reading it by the sea. Still really addictive and v looking forward to the crysalids!!

The Forget-Me-Not Sonata by Santa Montefiore

I got this book as a result of the book email Katy sent from a friend of Christine's. It's an easy read and quite an interesting story about life in Argentina, but wouldn't say I have to read lots more of her books.

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt

Read this for a second time as it was a Book Club book. It's based on a true story about a murder in Savanah. We borrowed it from Gus before our drive down the eastern side of US but sadly didn't read the book till after we'd visited Savanah. The book is a good read but it would have been better to visit Savanah after reading it not before.

A Spot of Bother - Mark Haddon

Well.. generally I liked it, not as strong as a curious incident but still a gripping story that I wanted to finish. Portrayal of mental health was a bit shallow and I wasn't particularly happy with the ending to the episodes.
That said I will defo read his other books but not rush to buy them in hardback.

Bit wierdly Mark's mum was reading this when she came to stay..
