What I'm reading this month....

Monday, May 02, 2011

Julia over at Curtains for the windows has got her lovely linky up and so while I have a quick break I thought I'd share mine with you.....

By far one of my all time favourites! I even chose it as my paper for literature. If you've never discovered Daphne Du Maurier I'd recommend starting with one. Haunting and wonderfully written!

Chris Stewart up and moved his wife to a shack in the Andalucia hills. No electricity or running water but they are supremily happy!

On a recent trip to Cornwall I had read all the books I had brought with me and was in need of something new and stumbled across this delightful tale of two brother refuges sent to Cornwall. Have been brought up with stories from the war by my grandparents (my papa was based in cornwall) I found this enchanting.

Do I really need to say anything?

I'm not to sure if you know but up until this year I made cakes and a large amount were novelty and with my youngest 1st birthday coming up I thought I'd refresh my ideas. These books are great for first timers through to seasoned makers!

Again another holiday purchase but I got so hooked I started following her on twitter and reading her blog!

  1. Wow! What a great selection. I've always wanted to read Rebecca.

    I also like the look of Tout Sweet, Kisses on a Postcard and Driving Over Lemons. More to add to my 'To read..' list!

  2. Def give Rebecca a read! The others are lighter reads and great when you can only read the odd chapter!

  3. the first two are great reads. The second one absolutely perfect if you're lucky enough to be able to read it whilst on holiday in Spain!
