Can you recommend a book to read?

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

I am reading the final chapters of 'Appetite' by Philip Kazan, it is a big book but the print is large and the subject matter is food oriented but with a good story of all sorts, set in Florence in 1466. As I only tend to read on holiday this is the 4th time I have picked it up this year !!!

Well, it was a good read with a bit of everything in it, romance, swash and buckle, food, art, history, all written well.

Just finished A Tap On The Window, easy to read and unputdownable.....

I am currently reading anything by Linwood Barclay that I can get my hands on, not read A Tap On The Window yet though.

Daughter has just passed on to me 'The Lake House', but Kate Morton ... none of her books have disappointed me so far :tu: . At the moment I am in the middle of a Ruth Rendell - 'Portobello' .. I never realised she wrote anything else other than the Wexford series but she writes a lot about life in the poorer parts of London and it's suburbs. I have also read '13 Steps Down' written about happenings close to 13 Rillington Place and also 'Adam and Eve and Pinch Me' - all of them a bit bleak though :(

I think the first Ruth Rendell books I read were The Speaker of Mandarin (1983) & 13.An Unkindness of Ravens (1985) which are Wexfords, and proabably A Demon in My View (1976) which isn't

Tree of Hands is set partly in Stokey, not one I enjoyed, but that wasn't the setting, just didn't like any of the characters

I enjoyed them but she didn't do research, and her inattention to detail annoys me sometimes (repeated references to a red plastic carrier bag from a chain whose brand has always been blue for example - just niggly)

And she uses a plot device I've noticed in other authors that doesn't really work - someone is widowed (or orphaned) and instantly penniless, despite the fact that in real life the deceased was in the sort of professional job that would mean they'd leave a sizeable pension pot (and probably life assurance) Apparently mortgage companies do not make you take out over-priced life assurance to cover the repayments, they just foreclose 30 minutes after the funeral It's really common plot device to get an disoriented innocent to move in a social milieu that is new to them,

i have started reading the latest 'shardlake' novel by c.j.sansom - 'lamentation' - picked up at the second hand book shop in truro last week. the earlier novels were very enjoyable so i imagine this will be no different.

I really enjoyed The Lake House Pat.

Ruth Rendell also writes under the name Barbara Vine.

I am going through my Kindle and spotting things I haven't read. Lots of people recommended The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry. Got great reviews and I've just started that.

Report on yesterday's book club
Everyone loved the Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri (short stories) and wants to read her other works - thanks to the propel who recommended it
As predicted, everyone but me had come armed with a list of classic sci fi's, so we agreed to read one of those, as so many people had never read any of them :o we settled on Hothouse by Brian Aldiss We'll probably read a modern one soon unless that's a complete disaster

For the record my final 3 were
1. Proxima by Stephaen Baxter
2. The Sciontree (The Four Corners Book 1) by Glenn Duffield
3. The Long Earth: (Long Earth 1) by Terry Pratchett, Stephen Baxter

i don't know how many pages there are in 'hothouse' as i'm reading it in epub format.
it says i've read to page 225. i'm waiting for something interesting to happen other than a not very well veiled dig at the bad leadership of women, the importance of male children and the fact that lots of characters die.
i haven't read any for a couple of weeks - should i bother picking it up again and continuing?

Life is too short to spend time on a book you're not enjoying - there are plenty more out there! Reading should be for pleasure not punishment :lol:

A 25%
B. not a lot

I realised on page 3 I'd read it before, when I was about 14 or 15, can't remember how it resolves (if at all)
It reads to me like juvenilia - overblown prose, silly names, and poor comparators for descriptions
It was a mistake to take the epigraph from Marvel - all I can think of is "my vegetable love should grow, vaster than empires, and more slow"

thank goodness for that - i thought it was me being snobby over the writing style - i'd been thinking it was aimed at a ten year old in the style and content.
i think i may put it back in the book list folder without finishing (only the second book i can remember doing that to -the first was middlemarch. i consider ulysses an ongoing project to pick up again sometime).
i made it to the beginning of chapter 14 by the way.

Thanks Suffolk! :tu:

Non-fiction wise I received both of the Soho House books for my birthday last month and I've loved reading those whenever I have 5 minutes to sit with a cup of tea. Soho Farmhouse is definitely on my list to go to next year if possible!

I've also been perusing Toast Hash Roast Mash by Dan Doherty (Duck and Waffle chef) and I'm tempted to order it...has anyone cooked any of his recipes before?

I recently discovered a series of books by David Dickinson (not the orange one from TV...) Set around the late 19th century, early 20th century, they feature a private investigator "Lord Francis Powerscourt". Seems to have some carefully researched background in London, Ireland and Russia.

And I'm still reading the Susannah Gregory books. Lots of them set in the Middle Ages (Matthew Bartholomew) and Restoration Era (Thomas Chaloner). Another set of whodunnits...

I picked up the Muse from the library yesterday and will be starting it in the next couple of days.

In the meantime I'm reading Black Rabbit Hall by Eve Chase. It's in a similar vein to the Kate Morton books (an old crumbling house, eccentric old family secrets, dual narrative across past and present). It's a nice easy read anyway, a good Sunday afternoon in an arm chair with a cup of tea kind of book.

I've just ordered this as something a bit different, partly for me and also for DD as she grows up. I've read a few great reviews of it recently.

I'm also dipping in and out of this at the moment and finding it a really fascinating read...

Suffolk, I loved The Muse!

I've picked up the latest fiction by Dawn French from the library on a whim. However, I've just checked the reviews on Amazon and they're awful! I'll reserve judgement and give it a go anyway.

Book club has read Just Kids, Patti Smith's memoir of her life with Robert Mapplethorpe

We met last night, we all loved it, she writes so well it is an easy read despite the occasionally grim events.
I once heard her discussing bereavement and recovery with Kubler Ross on R4, very interesting, and moving, she spoke well and I've liked her ever since, though not always a huge fan of her music; having said which we listened to Horses last night and all enjoyed it

Next nook The Seasons anthology from R4's Poetry Please, we will each pick a poem and read it aloud for discussion.

I must have a go at that one.....

Finished Blood Sisters - made me shed a tear at various points in the book, very good, I recommend it, Mr. Z is now coming up to halfway through it, needing a change from Smiley's People.

There is a book shelf here and at some of the other hotels too, so will have enough to keep us busy till the end of the Holibob.

Presently started... The Mermaid and the Drunks by Ben Richards. Set is Chilie- looks promising if a little hard to get into.

Please don't anyone read 'According to Yes' by Dawn French. It was the worst piece of drivel I've read in a long time.

I'm loving the latest by Sara Baume though...

Like her previous (wonderful) book 'Spill, Simmer..." this one is certainly bleak in subject, but her writing is just beautiful.

I read Dominion a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it, a friend recommended it after reading it at her book club. I have downloaded (in the last few days) onto my Kindle both Fatherland and SS-GB and will read them in due course. I have just started reading Mount by Jilly Cooper.
