Pedalling away on the bike at the gym gives me the perfect opportunity to catch up on a bit of reading. So far this year I’ve read “A Tiny Bit Marvellous” by Dawn French which had me in tears (from laughter and sadness), “The Quickie” by James Patterson (thriller), “Skin and Bone” by Kathryn Fox (Aussie author who writes excellent psychological thrillers), “When God was a Rabbit” by Sarah Winman and just recently “Christmas Magic” by Cathy Kelly. I jumped straight into this story without reading the blurb and wondered, after the 6th chapter why she hadn’t mentioned the characters from chapter 1 again. Puzzled, I turned to the back cover and discovered that… “Christmas Magic is full of charming and feel-good short stories of life, love and the everyday dilemmas that we all face.” Now it all made sense! I had to laugh.
I was given “When God was a Rabbit” to read by a friend at playgroup (she has formed a book club with a group of mums from school, playgroup and kindy). I read it during the school holidays and loved it. Couldn’t put it down. Even when I’d finished the book I wanted to flick back through and re-read parts. Now I’m looking forward to my first ever book club meeting tomorrow night! To read reviews and comments for “When God was a Rabbit” click here.
Have you read “When God was a Rabbit”? What did you think? Are there any other books that you’ve read recently that you couldn’t put down?
p.s. A big thank you to Tash (a little bit of thyme) for teaching me to insert a link. I’ve done it twice now – Woohoo!
