These are currently making up my little bedside library:
Top to bottom:
The Hunger Games
I've not started this book yet, and hope I've not just been drawn into the hype with the buzz about the film etc. The premise sounds interesting and I'm quite excited to get it started.
This is one of my all time favourite reads and I still dip in and out of it now and again. I was very excited when it was first published, there was a lot of controversy surrounding this book, due to the description of the twenty something generation at the time being labelled as "Generation X" basically "Underemployed, over educated. Brought up with divorce... scarred by recession, in a world of semi-disposable Swedish furniture....working in no future McJobs...." It's a thought provoking read rather than an adventure, it's certainly has no pace, but it does leave you with a certain, lingering feeling afterwards.
It was published in 1992 and when ever I re-read it, I can't help but think of it's text as being almost prophetic.
The Winter Ghosts
I've read two other books by Kate Mosse (not the supermodel!) but this is by far the most beautifully written. It is both moving and haunting in equal measure with a mystery that keeps you hooked until the end! Stunning!
A girl's guide to decorating Abigail AhernThis is the most recent book I've bought. If you've been watching Channel 4's "Get your house in order" you'll be aware of interior designer Abigail Ahern. This book features lot's of her ideas for transforming your own home in her eclectic and quirky style.
I absolutely love Abigail's use of colour and I lie in bed pawing through the pages and daydreaming of living in a space created by her! Wonderful!
I own many, many baking books, but this book is the only one I keep by my bedside. Not only are the recipes foolproof and delicious, but the book is so lovely to look at! Only problem with reading baking/cookery books in bed though, is it makes me hungry!
I tag anyone who reads this and fancies writing about their own bedside books!
