What I've been reading

 I used to be an incredible reader.  When I was a young girl and a teenager I used to devour books at in incredible rate.  Things went bad in my 20's, and sad to say went even worse in my 30's.  But lately I have been doing much better and I am really pushing myself to get back into something I used to love so much.
First up was the fabulous Judy Blume's fabulous "In the Unlikely Event".  I thoroughly enjoyed this book although strangely enough it took me longer to get into than I thought it would.  Judy Blume sketches characters so well and the storyline is so interesting (based on a true story) that once I eventually started getting a hang of all the characters (there are a lot!) I was hooked.  An all round enjoyable read.
 

 
  I started reading this Monday during my lunchbreak and I finished it that evening.  A combination of a great story and a very quick read.  It's the epitome of a thriller and I'd also recommend this book to you if you have not read it already.
 
I am also in the middle of Mary Berry's autobiography, and a book by Paul Williams about the vile Graham Dwyer who murdered poor Elaine O'Hara.  Enjoying the Mary Berry one.  I am loathe to use the word "enjoy" for the other book bearing in mind the awful subject
 
I like to read multiple books at the one time as you can see,
 
I hope you enjoyed my mini reviews. Have you read any of these books? Let me know what you thought of them!
