Chick lit

Last month I did begin on my Patricia Cornwell quest but before I could get onto the 2nd book in the series my partner got hooked so I have let him get a book or so ahead. To fill the gap before I start on the 2nd book I attempted an historical novel The Coffee Trader by David Liss set in 17th century Amsterdam, about a commodities trader who discovers the mysterious coffee fruit and it’s mysterious effects if you grind it up and drink it so sets about trading it. Unfortunately, because I read at night mostly and because this book was fairly hard going, I kept falling asleep after only 2 paragraphs and could not get into it. So I have put it aside for holiday time!

Instead I returned to chick lit and devoured Marion Keyes’ latest novel The Other Side of the Story and have just started on Sophie Kinsella’s latest Undomestic Goddess, which is not in the shopaholic series but is just as good.
