What I’ve been Reading – Nov’21

Posted by

So much to read, so little time! I almost wish for some magical way I could complete one book every day!

The Great Indian Festival sale on Amazon meant I landed up buying a tonne more books so now my TBR pile is a virtual tower of 5000 tomes probably. And that’s after resisting the temptation to buy many more that I wanted to!

This time I’ve leaned more towards humour, the gentle one of Alexander McCall Smith and the more laugh-out-loud quips one can only get from chick-lit.

A Time of Love and Tartan by Alexander McCall Smith

This is the next in the 44 Scotland Street series after The Bertie Project. I’ve loved this series right from the first book, each character growing and developing and following a different but interesting arc.

500 ways to write harder by Chuck Wendig

This is one of those books that I dip into at random when I’m between books, because there’s always some nugget of advice to be gleaned from it. Chuck Wendig dispenses plenty of writing-related one-liners on his blog too, and I believe this is a compilation of the posts on his blog. He tells it like it is, and sometimes I just need that no-nonsense advice and inspiration to spur me on my journey.

Bridget Jones’ Baby by Helen Fielding

More than twenty years ago, I read Bridget Jones’ Diary and cried with laughter. I also read the sequel The Edge of Reason, then I watched and loved the resulting movies. The original book triggered the genre of chick-lit, and even if in some ways its no more than a modern Pride and Prejudice I love it with a passion. Last year I saw the movie Bridget Jones’ Baby and when I came across the book on sale at Amazon, I simply had to snap it up! I’m reading this now and totally loving it!

That’s all I have on my reading list this week! Which books have you been reading? Please feel free to add to my TBR pile by giving your recommendations in the comments below!
