Book List #6

The Girl on the Landing by Paul Torday
You can read my review here.

Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
I think this may have been the most boring book I’ve ever read!

When God Was A Rabbit by Sarah Winman
I enjoyed this – it’s written in quite an unusual style and has a few twists. I like the cover too!

Snow Drops by A.D. Miller
This was a tiny bit predictable but still a great read.

One Day by David Nicholls
You’ve probably read enough reviews by now so don’t need me to tell you that this is a fantastic book!

The Night Before Christmas by Scarlett Bailey
Brilliant Christmas book! It really got me feeling Christmassy (although I did find loads of typos!).

So that’s all the books I read in 2011 (Book List #1 to #6). The first of the 2012 lists won’t be up until I’ve read a few more books!


The Girl on the Landing

The Girl on the Landing is written by Paul Torday who is probably best known for writing Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.  I’ve been wanting to read Salmon Fishing in the Yemen for a while so when I saw The Girl on the Landing in the Oxfam bookshop I thought I’d give it a go.

The story is about a couple who have quite a dull, boring life together but all that changes when they go away for a weekend to Ireland and Michael starts to change.  He becomes more fun and loving and Elizabeth starts to fall in love with him again.  Then everything changes.  I’m not going to tell you too much as I don’t want to spoil it for you!

The book is really easy to read and kept me hooked throughout so is undoubtedly worth a read.
