Holiday Reading

We're on the count down to holidays now, 4 work days or 6 sleeps - either way - I'm excited!
I finished reading Jane Eyre last weekend - it was great! It did take me a while to read though 2 months to be exact... the old language was a struggle on nights when I was tired.

I've picked up something a little more modern for my next read. Audrey Niffenegger's Her Fearful Symmetry. I'm already a few chapters in and I can tell I'm going to enjoy it.
One of the setting of the book is Highgate cemetery in London. MrG and I did a tour of the cemetery while living in London. It was amazing and so very beautiful. In fact I'll find some of our photos and post them up one day soon.
Not sure if I'm being optimistic but I also have 2 other books on the reading list for this summer, Goodbye to all that and The Big Sleep plus 4 magazines, the 2 latest Frankies (yep to bust to read the last one before the next came out..) a Peppermint and a Mixtape.

Holidays are from the 24th to the 11th - bliss! We're off to Sydney from the 30th to the 3rd. I've never had a NYE in Sydney so looking forward to seeing the fireworks in person rather than via the news the next day. I wonder how they will compare to the London fireworks - now they were someting special!


  1. I am excited - didn't know there was another niffeneger to niffinread. Thanks cherries!

  2. Where did those organised 'genes' come from - i'll have to do a post on how unorganised I am -
    I'm trying not to panic :o x
