December Books

I naively believed that December would be quieter than November and that I would have more time for reading… I was oh-so-wrong! Between Christmas shopping, travel planning and festive gatherings, I barely had time for myself. I still managed to sneak a few pages here and there, and I had plenty of time to read whilst we were stuck on the runway for two hours on the flight back from Berlin a few days ago.

According to Yes | Dawn French
This book made me smile, it made me laugh a few times and even though I like the overall message (live life to the fullest and say yes to new adventures), I found the plot a bit thin and twisted. This light-hearted, humorous ‘chick-lit’ novel was the perfect easy read for a busy month, but I certainly wouldn’t read it twice.

The Penguin Lessons | Tom Mitchell
This one was an early birthday present from Edward and it kept me company during our flights to and from Berlin. The author recounts the true story of Juan Salvado, the penguin he saved from an oil spill on a Uruguayan beach before taking him back to Argentina where he lived. A very touching tale of friendship and South American adventures; I laughed and almost cried a few times too.

Happy reading!
