travel with me from SAHM to working mum….
… this is not a swear word I have just invented but the mnemonic: buy one get one free. Yes, we are barely out of the first week in May and I have started cheating. This is my attempt to catch up on a day’s missed post.
I am reading ‘Scorpia Rising’ by Anthony Horowitz at the moment. It is the last book in his Alex Rider series, about a reluctant teenage spy. We listened to the first few on audiobooks in long journeys, and then they stopped. But I was hooked and when the final instalment came out last year I wanted to read it. Especially after I heard that it had a realistic ending and ‘bad things happened’. I’ve managed to avoid my daughter who finished reading the saga long ago and, for the past few months, I have caught up on the final 3 books and am a chapter away from completion.
So far bad things have happened. I think it’s due to get worse. I’m looking for a quiet moment to finish – preferably one where I don’t have to face people after. I think I will be crying.
Which brings me up to today. What book last made you last cry? What are you reading at the moment and what will you read next?
I’m going to read ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ – not my choice, it’s for my book group.
