Book 2 for the Postal reading Challenge-
Next To Love
This book belonged to my Mum and she had enjoyed it. I'd attempted to read it once before but put it down after a few pages. This is a good thing about reading challenges, they get you to give books a second chance. I enjoyed this book, but I didn't love it. I found the time setting interesting and the parts I enjoyed the most were the letters. I found it interesting reading the letters from the men in the war and how their perceptions of the world changed with their experiences.
Book3 for the Postal Reading Challenge-
Feeling Sorry for Celia
I didn't feel sorry for Celia at all, and think it's a rather ill fitting title for this book. I don't think any of the characters felt sorry for Celia really? Worried about Celia might have been a better title. Celia's mother should have done something about her behavior really!
I guess this book (like "Every boys got one") would appeal a lot more to younger readers.
Book4 for the Postal Reading Challenge-
The Prodigal Sister
This book was also my Mum's and I wish she'd had a chance to read it, she would have loved it I think. This is the sort of book I wanted to write notes in the margins of. I added a list of dates and a photocopy of a map for the next reader (probably one of my sisters).
I loved the interaction between the 4 sisters and the location. (New Zealand's South island)
I didn't want to finish it, but I couldn't put it down.
The book covered a lot of topics (grief/self harm/infedelity) in an interesting storyline.
