I just finished watching Goodnight Mr Tom, which is one of the few films that I think is better than its book counterpart. Obviously I’m in tears, because there’s not a single second of that film that doesn’t get you right in the feels.
You probably didn’t even notice I’d gone, but I’ve been inactive on my blog for the last few days as I’ve been moving into a new flat! Yaaaaay!
We are now officially moved in and the living room is nearly just how I’d like it. It came with some lovely shelves built in so obviously my first thought was to put books on display.
OOOOOOH what’s inside???
Today I’m doing the Burn, Rewrite or Reread Book Tag. I was tagged by icebreaker694, whom you should definitely visit and follow!
I also only condone virtual book-burning. No books were harmed in the making of this blog post.
- Choose 3 books. (Most people have been using the ‘random’ option on Goodreads so I’ll be doing that too.)
- For each group of books, choose a book to burn, to rewrite, and to reread.
- Repeat until you completed three rounds (I did 5 because I got too excited).
I was in a massive reading slump for a lot of last month, but eventually I managed to read a total of 8 new books and reread 3. Once the slump was over, I was going through books like crazy!
I think I’ll do a separate post on the books I’ve been rereading, so I’ll just talk about the new ones today.
1. The Taming of the Queen by Philippa Gregory.
Premise: This is about Henry VIII’s sixth wife, Catherine (Kateryn in this book) Parr, who was the one to outlive him. (I’m not calling this a spoiler as it’s historical fiction!) Henry is still
as spoilt as ever and the whole book is about Kateryn’s cleverness in how she survives marriage to a mad king whose previous wives have either been divorced or died.
My Rating: 4/5
