On the school run reading whilst waiting for my daughter and spot a place very close to home. I live minutes away from Scarning Fen and it's beautiful. These books have always been local but never this local.

While I always enjoy reading about Wallis Simpson (and anyone who makes life difficult for the royal family), reading about her husband, the former King Edward VIII, just wasn't as interesting. He was pretty much just a whiny man-child who briefly relied on Hitler to help him find a way to reclaim the throne he gave up for the woman he loved.

Texreader Wow, telling it like it is! Excellent review! 2d

Storm Brendan is doing it‘s thing out there, and I‘m grateful to have a non-leaking roof over my head. Also, I adored this book.

Due to a bad business decision, Ray and Moth lose their farm, their home and their business. With just a week to clear out, Moth is diagnosed with a degenerative brain disease. So, obviously, they decide to walk the SW coast path. And it changes them. 👇

RachelO This is a beautifully written tale of two people putting one foot in front of the other, absorbing the world around them and accepting loss. It‘s told with warmth and humour, and an awareness of how easy it would be to sink into self-pity (it doesn‘t). And, without ever hammering the point, it takes a look at what homelessness means in Britain today, and how crazy the narrative around homelessness actually is.

Stunning.

Moray_Reads We're also feeling it north of the border. I'm clinging to the hope that it'll be over by the time I have to catch a flight tomorrow 4d
RachelO @Moray_Reads Oh no - hadn‘t realised it was the whole country! Good luck! 4d

Moray_Reads @RachelO I think Edinburgh is missing most of it, it's worse on the west coat and the highlands and is supposed to have calmed down by tomorrow. Here's hoping 4d
RachelO @Moray_Reads 🤞 Hopefully it‘ll have blown past by tomorrow- Looks like we‘re expecting it to hang round a little longer. It‘s very wild out there! 4d
TrishB Lovely review Rachel 👍🏻 rain is bonkers here at the moment. 4d
RachelO @TrishB Thank you for the book Trish! I probably wouldn‘t have picked it up myself for ages! I really need to read this now: 4d
TrishB Another good read 👍🏻 4d
Cathythoughts We had Storm Brendan yesterday ! Very wild weather , it passed over in a couple of hours. We escaped any damage , but other parts of Ireland got hit harder 3d
RachelO @Cathythoughts Glad it didn‘t do too much damage in your part of the world. Think we got away lightly as well. It‘s still wild here today - today I learnt that the bridge across the river is referred to as the singing bridge. It whistles when it‘s stormy - I‘ve been trying to work out what the sound was for months! 3d

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I‘m a big fan of Bill Bryson, I love his ability to notice the quirks of the British that we view as completely normal.

Where Daphne du Maurier was a tenant and dreamt of Manderley, we lay homeless and penniless under the stars. We had lost everything except our children and each other, but we had the wet grass and the rhythm of the sea on the rocks. Could we survive on that? We knew the answer, but to give this up and return to the world didn‘t seem like the answer either.

2/12 next up, one of my personal hero's. This is quite a wordy book with dense writing and 460 pages but I am looking forward to it! #uk #essex #ameliaearhart

@Come-read-with-me - Thank you for the tag!🙂

🌝 I didn‘t make any resolutions this year because last year‘s batch all fizzled in the early months of 2019. Too much of everything gets in the way. I have decided to read more of my already owned books with greater fervor and determination. I hope to purchase less books, but that is my area of fragility.

MoonWitch94 I am guilty of doing the same. Books 📖 are my kryptonite lol Thanks for playing ☺️ 5d
MallenNC I have the same goal to read more of the books I own, but it is tough to do! Good luck to us all on that this year. 5d
