So for those of you that don’t know. I read a lot. Its my greatest strength and greatest weakness and my favourite thing to do like probably in the whole wide world. Last year I did a book a week and if you’re interested you can find details of that here. Please check it out it was a really fun challenge! I wonder how many I’m gunna get through this year?I’ve just come back from 7 days holiday in Fiji and I would usually read between 4-6 books in a week of just relaxing. This time I was a bit slow due to being sleep deprived! But I did make it through 2 and they were both amazing so I thought I’d fill you in.
My first read was by Ken Follet and was called Eye Of The Needle. Now for those of you not familiar with Ken… he’s a babe and you should all give at least one of his a go. My fave would be The Pillars Of The Earth that was the one that got me hooked on him. Eye Of The Needle is his earliest and you can tell by the way its written, but that doesn’t discredit it in the slightest its twists and turns will keep you hooked and its a cracker along with everything else he’s written! Pick it up give it a go and let me know what you think!
My second fave was…. wait for it… Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King.. Stephen got me hooked at the age of 15 when I first read Dreamcatcher, its not his best but its a great book. I’ve read most of his and I think most people agree The Stand is his best and probably my second favourite ever book and I’ve read a lot! Sleeping Beauties is written with his son and its magical and gripping. I totally loved it and will now look into some of Owens own works and see what he has to offer.His characters are real to me and every page makes you feel like you are there in some strange sleeping reality. I think with Stephen King you love him or hate him and love isn’t strong enough for how I feel. I’m infatuated by everything he writes and could read him all day.
Please let me know what are your fave books? /authors? Best book ever written? Its a hard one but I know my choice. I’m always looking for new recommendations so please get in touch! Thank you as always for reading. Feel free to share, like and subscribe!
