Some how I missed the reading update in April - but over the Easter long weekend I did finish reading Geraldine Brooks' Year of Wonder! It was a really wonderful story - and told beautifully, and of course the historical aspect was really interesting. I think Brooks did an excellent job of writing in a voice that makes the reader feel transported to that time - I really felt like I experienced a bit of life in the 1600s.
I highly recommend having a look, if you haven't read it yet - and if you have I'd love to hear what you thought too! =)
This month I'm getting a start on another book that's been on my shelf for ages - and also via my mum's bookclub (It's a favourite there - I believe new members have to read it to join =)) - Donna Tartt's The Secret History.
I'd love to hear what you've been reading! Leave a comment, or a link if you post on your blog, to join our bloggy book club for May!!
Enjoy your reading!!
