Twitterature January 2014

Being sick has been great for my reading, and most of these books were finished in January. As always I am linking up with the lovely Modern Mrs Darcy.

The Reader by Bernhard Schlink: Thought-provoking WWII story between a teenage boy and older woman, but I never really cared about the characters. #SkipIt

Power (Protection) by Shaun McGonigal: Fascinating sci-fi that powerfully deals with questions about religion, power and control. #Recommended

Sating the Preta: A Memoir about Emotional Abuse and Recovery from Complex PTSD by Lily Scot: Thought-provoking and interesting, although at times rather fragmented memoir about emotional abuse and PTSD.

Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella: Standard chick lit, fluffy light and fairly entertaining, although nothing amazing.

Humane, Resourced: A Book of Blogs by David D’Souza: Fascinating collection of short essays/blog posts giving different and intriguing viewpoints on the HR profession past, present and future.

Eat for Heat: The Metabolic Approach to Food and Drink by Matt Stone: Interesting thoughts and ideas, but poorly supported. Warning: Bad Language. #SkipIt

What have you been reading this month?

As always I invite you to find me and connect with me on Goodreads.

  1. I was stunned at how many Sophie Kinsella books made people’s favorites-of-2013 list, so now she’s one of my must-read authors for 2014! I never thought I’d say that, but it’s true. 🙂

    • Well when it comes to chick lit she is one of my favourites (my favourite being Marian Keyes), although I wouldn’t start with Wedding Night. Rather I’d recommend Can You Keep a Secret, The Undomestic Goddess or Remember Me?

  2. Agree with your review of Wedding Night, though it was better than many of her books… and sometimes a Fluff book is nice… 🙂
