On my first trip to the library this year I brought home with me:
Alice Hartley's Happiness - Philippa Gregory = because it's one of hers I haven't come across before.
Blood Brothers - Josephine Cox = simply because I've not read her before and she had a lot of books on the shelves!!
Her Every Pleasure - Gaelen Foley = it's a period drama so I thought I'd give it a go.
Not mind blowingly fantastic reasons to take out a book but as good a place to start as any :0)
On my to look for list are:
Mixed Signals by Liz Curtis Higgs
The Help by Kathryn Stockett (always out on loan!!)
The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
Crow Lake by Mary Lawson
That should keep me going for a while.
