Sunday Salon - Happy Mothers Day


A very quick Sunday Salon today as it is Mothers Day and I have a very busy and exciting day planned,which I will blog about later on in the week. So, I doubt I will get around to many other Sunday Saloners today, but hope to have a good browse tomorrow.
Firstly a happy Mothers Day to all the mothers reading this today, I hope you are all doing something really nice today and this is your day to enjoy.
This week I have been reading two books which I have yet to finish.
The Marriage Bureau for Rich People by Farahad Zama. This book reminds me of The No1 Ladies Detective Agency, it is a simple story and yet so beautifully written. It is set in India and the agency helps parents finds a suitable partner for their children to marry. It is a lovely read, which I hope to review next week.
I am also half way through Gentlemen and Players by Joanne Harris. I have really enjoyed the Joanne Harris books I have read previously and this one is a fantastic read too. It is set in a private boys school and all the main characters are male, which I find unusual for a female writer to write about, however, she manages to take the perspective of males with ease - a sign of a good writer I feel.
I finished reading three books by Catherine Fisher - The Conjuror's Game (which I reviewed this week) The Candle Man and Fintans Tower, which I will review briefly tomorrow.
This week, I also hope to read the following books.
Fearless by Tim Lott
Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison
The Tygrine Cat by Inbalis Iserles.
What are you going to read this week?
