This weekend I have been participating in the Inner Child weekend set up by dovegreyreader. This is where we dedicate one weekend a month to reading books that we enjoyed as a child. So today I am enjoying rereading The Magician's Nephew by C.S. Lewis. This takes me back to my little bedroom, all painted white with delicate pink flowers on the bed spread. My record player at my side, probably playing Madonna or Wham. Posters covering my walls of pictures of George Michael, Rob Lowe and Madonna. Oh those were the days - no mortgage, no bills, no ironing and cleaning. Kids don't realise how lucky they are!
During the week, I managed to finish reading Forged in the Fire, which was fabulous and set during the plague and the Great Fire of London. I also read The Haunting of Cassie Palmer, which was another book I read as a child. I also finished Coastliners by Joanne Harris, which is the first of her books that I have read. I haven't written a review yet, so that will be coming up this week.
I hope to read more this week, as the weather turns colder and with expectations of more snow expected, I will need to have a few duvet and hot waterbottle hours this week. Hope it is warmer where you are this weekend.
