#50BookChallenge - Books 10, 11 & 12 (Caitlin Moran & Jodi Picoult)

Tuesday, 15 May 2012




While I was on my travels I managed to read three books, detailed as follows -

HOW TO BE A WOMAN - Caitlin Moran

Recommended to me by my dear friend Kath, she brought this along on our holiday for me to read. It is hands down (& bras off) one of THE FUNNIEST books I have read, ever. I was eyed suspiciously by sun worshippers poolside after laughing hysterically at several key points through this book, and also disturbed Kath's reading at bedtime by gasping for breath after reading about the 'bat' incident. There were actual tears. If you are a woman, and even if you are not, you need to read this book, no question. Positively hilarious but also rather touching, it is an absolute must-read.

SING YOU HOME - Jodi Picoult

I am a massive Jodi Picoult fan and my bookshelf is dominated by her work, so you can imagine my delight when my husband presented me with two more of her novels to take away with me! Sing You Home did not disappoint and was everything I have come to expect from Jodi Picoult. She delves deep in to the world of baby loss and infertility and tells a very poignant tale of how it can push people apart, but also bring them together. Harrowing at times, and a real tearjerker, but a beautifully written and touching story which was very much worth reading.

KEEPING FAITH - Jodi Picoult

Thought-provoking and profound, I was hooked on this book from the minute I picked it up. It opens your mind and your thoughts to religion and spirituality, and tells the story of a mother's dedication and love for her child in trying times, including divorce and depression. Mariah's love for Faith shines through and you find yourself rooting for her from the word 'go'. Two thumbs up from me.

  2. Wow, a FIFTY book challenge, I set myself a 12 book challenge this year and thought that might be pushing it lol! I too love Jodi Picoult and was lucky enough to meet her last month when she did a book evening in my nearby town. I bought Sing You Home and got her to sign it for me (bought my Sister in Law Lone Wolf and got her to sign it for her birthday for me!). Jodi was inspiring to listen too, would highly recommend seeing her at any available opportunity!
