Books 3, 4 and 5 #50Books2013

This year I am linking up with Julie, Mama Owl for the #50books2013 challenge. You can link up here too, if you fancy a reading challenge.

Anyone who knows me will confirm I am an avid reader, Mr W used to complain when my holiday suitcase contained at least 14 books (one for everyday we were away!) Since having children though, it has been harder to maintain this hobby as I am usually too tired to read now!

So this will be a challenge, but a fun and hopefully relaxing one too!

Watch this space to see how I get on...

Book 3

Another Kobo reader book!
This is a book of stories from Sheila O'Flannagan that have a range of different characters but that are all good, light hearted fun and easy to read. The stories are lovely and can be related to, with characters with young children, stresses of family life and work. At the end there is as sequel to Isobel's Wedding, for anyone who read that book.

Books 4 and 5

These are a couple of my favourite books ever! They are ones I have read loads of times and love re reading.
Some might find that strange, but if I have enjoyed a book I will re read it over and over again.
These books are about Venetia Summers and her family and follow a couple of years as she chaotically meanders through country life, following her husband running off with his masseuse. Her boys and baby daughter 'The Beauty' are so real they could be my friends!
If anyone has read these, I would love to know what you thought, and if not, give them a go, you might just love them as much as me!

Reading List

1. Winter Warmers by Carole Matthews (Kobo free download)
2. Letters From Chicago by Cathy Kelly (Kobo download)
3. From The Heart by Shelia O'Flanagan
4. Hens Dancing by Raffaella Barker
5. Summertime by Raffaella Barker


  1. Totally agree with you re the Raffaella Barker books, I love them too! The Beauty is such a brilliant character. I blogged about them too at

  2. When I was a kid I used to reread books all the time, but I never do nowadays. Really should (although as lots of books I read are crime/psychological thrillers, I guess there's not as much to get out of them in terms of surprise and twists as there are first time round)

  3. I wish I could find more time to read, there's nothing quite like losing yourself in a good book. Thanks for joining in x

  4. The Barker books sound really good - I will have to check those ones out. And its good to re-read books I think :) x
