Emily Recommends. “I Absolutely loved reading this book I did not want it to end. I loved how it dealt with some serious issues in a dry manner. I loved all the characters and just liked the LIFE FACTOR it involved, more please.
It ended very very well. Although frustratingly, Kindle had put a tester of another of Maria Semple’s work at the end of this book, so I thought I still had 10% of the book to go, so although it ended at the right time for the story, I was annoyed it didn’t carry on! Sometimes it’s nice having that little extra sample,but this time I just wanted more of the story for this one! This is well worth a read for all sorts of people. People who like people. People who like love. People who like comedy. & People who like life.“

The Rosie Project #1 Don Tillman by Graeme Simsion I have literally just finished it. I have not been as impressed by this book, I enjoyed it but had to push myself through it. It was a read which shouldn’t have been straight after Where’d You Go Bernadette. I didn’t plan that well. It’s a sort of book I would usually enjoy, but maybe my tastes are beginning to change?! There’s a chapter on my kindle version of the next instalment of the series, The Rosie Effect, debating whether to read it now, but I don’t think I felt hooked enough to buy it and read more.
Next up for me to read is Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I’m hoping to learn, enjoy and immerse myself in this book. I’ve also high hopes that I will be able to read more from this author. I’ll keep you all updated.
