I wasn't intending to neglect the blogging world so much over the Christmas holidays but unfortunately I was taken into hospital for three days before Christmas and I'm only slowly regaining my strength now. I managed to pick up gastroenteritis from somewhere (probably a child in school), which in turn triggered a flare-up of a pre-existing bowel condition. It was horrible.
Anyway, I'm feeling a lot better now, if a little weak. I felt like I had been run over by a bus when I first came out but each day I am feeling a little better and a little stronger.
Whilst in hospital I read two quick, easy reads for distraction:
Bill goes missing whilst on a secret assignment and Sookie must team up with a werewolf to help find him. Like the other two, easy to read and fun. Sookie gets more and more likeable with each book in the series. As always, I wished there was more about the secondary characters.
I first read this back when I was 15 or 16, and my sister got me a 30p copy from the hospital gift shop. I don't read much chick-lit, but I enjoyed this book just as much on the re-read as I did the first time around. Financial journalist Becky Bloomwood is terrible at managing her own finances and just can't resist shopping. It took me to another world, didn't tax my brain, and passed the time. The ending was suspiciously tidy, though - I don't think getting out of debt is that easy.
