Currently Reading.

I may be the only one that does this, but I love reading several books at the same time, which is why I will most probably never have one book under my 'currently reading' list. It completely depends on my mood and where I am. I will try to review each book I have finished, without spoiling the story, which is something I may tend to do!

I recently finished Lucky, by Alice Sebold. I read her other book, 'The Lonely Bones' a while ago and absolutely loved it (and very happy to find out that it is actually going to be turned into a film!) .. so I hinted to my boyfriend that I wanted any books that she had written, for Christmas. I wanted 'Lucky' as it was her 'first' book and didn't read anything else about it, and expected it to be something quite lighthearted, but I was in for a shock!

It is a memoir of her rape when she was 17, very detailed and disturbing and also explains the rape trial. I won't say too much, but after the trial verdict was stated, I expected that that was the end of the memoir and only had a few pages left, but something else happened. It was a great book, which is what I expected, and looking foward to reading her recently released one, 'The Almost Moon'.

First day of blogging.

Today is the day I have created this blog, I have decided that this blog will strictly be from the creative side of my brain, to illustrate my creative notions and progress and to also include other creative souls.

Nobody wants to know what you had for dinner.
