In My Own Words:
Good natured book worm. Enjoys a glass of wine, books, music, sunshine and Indian food. Tendency to clumsiness and can be a bit of a drama queen!

The Queen Of The Tearling by Erika Johansen
The Queen Of The Tearling by Erika Johansen
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really enjoyed reading this book, it begins as what you would think to be a benign, simple story of a lost child, brought up by foster parents far away from the kingdom. This child is the daughter of a queen and one day needs to claim her throne back from her rather nasty Uncle who has taken the throne of the Tearling himself as a self-styled regent.

There is of course a lot more to this story than meets the eye and that is what I enjoyed most about it. At first you think this is a completely fictional fantasy world but it becomes apparent that this is in fact set in our world but in a future where some major catastrophe has devastated our modern civilization.

Savage Little Angels (Darkshines Seven Book 2) by Russell Mardell
After being left on a cliff hanging ending to part one, part two gets off to a fast pace; the seven have reached what appears to be sanctuary at the cottage after escape from near death and capture by the party in City-17, but it quickly turns out to be nothing of the sort.

Another fantastic read for fans of Bleeker Hill. Mia continues to be one of my most favourite heroines in any book I have read. Deep, engaging and constantly interesting.

Adjustable Sun Lounger Mat in Red by Hamble Distribution
Adjustable Sun Lounger Mat in Red by Hamble Distribution
I took this beach lounger on holiday with me to Lanzarote so I could lounge on the beach and be comfortable with my back supported. It works extremely well, the back slides out and can be adjusted to the incline you wish to lay back at, the base itself is slightly padded but I added a towel on top for more comfort. I spent several hours on it and it was very comfortable, just like having your own beach bed. One word of caution, the size of this folded is 50cm X 50cm approx so you will need a large suitcase to fit it in if you want to take it abroad. I managed to find a case large enough from Argos and it fitted snugly and I avoided the second check in bag charge which is very expensive!
