From the comfort of my sofa

I just like to read! There is no greater pleasure than a peaceful house and a good book. I will read most genres but not sure I have the imagination to really "get" some science fiction and fantasy.

A perfect summer read

It’s Not Me, It’s You - Mhairi McFarlane

As a break from my normal fare of serial killers, psychopaths and disintegrating personalities, it is a treat for me to read something lighter, brighter and warming. The problem I have is that "lighter and brighter" sometimes also means trite, predictable and unrealistic so choosing these books, for me, is harder than choosing my next serial killer! HOWEVER, Mhairi McFarlane is one of those novelists whose books I am pretty certain to enjoy, after all You Had Me At Hello is one of my favourite books in this genre. It’s Not Me, It’s You does not disappoint, well written with witty dialogue, this book just flows along even though it is quite long. A perfect summer read, holiday or poolside book or, like me, a perfect break from the darker side!
