Weddings and Love Galore.

With the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton coming up, I thought I'd do something for the occasion and also to try to be a little patriotic.

So I've ditched the fantasy adventures for a small while and have gone on to reading some love and romance adventures instead. (Yay!?)

So at the moment that consists of reading anything at all lovey I can get my hands on.

But here's a few reccommendations for you:
1. Anything by Jill Mansell. She is a romantic literary genius if you want easy to read feel good stories about love and romance with some laughs along the way. (albeit prehaps a little obvious)
2. Any fairy tale you can get your hands on. Always a major plot point in it are the princes and princesses destined to fall in love.
3. A favourite of mine: Stardust by Neil Gaiman (for love, fantasy and adventure!)
4. A classic - Jane Austens' Pride and Prejudice or Sense and Sensibility
5. Another Classic - Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet.
6. Something a little different. - The Venus Conspiricy by Michael Cordy.

Hope that satisfies a few romantics.

Birthday Books

So this year for my birthday there's a list of books I'll be asking for.
A few of them have come from the excellent reviewing at Cari's Book Blogs. Ands of course a few I've been wanting for a while.

So here it goes with the list (in no particular order):
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
Matched by Ally Condie - This one I REALLY want to read.
The Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
1984 (or Nineteen eighty-four) by George Orwell
