I didn't think I was going to have a book for the train prompt for #letstravelaugust but as I walked past the little lending library at work this book caught my eye.
Finding a book for the prompt of United kingdom was never going to be an issue given my love of historical fiction. The problem was always going to be which one to choose. In the end I picked this book because it us partially set in Sheffield which is where I lived in the late 90s for four years

I interrupt my baking to bring you my #letstravelaugust with a very non baking book
Earlier this week Paullina Simons was in town for an event with Heather Morris so it seems fitting to post their books so closely together even though I didn't go to the event. I don't recall reading many books set in Poland that aren't about WWII.
This is the last book I read that was partially set in a bookstore. In this case it was a store which specialised in rare editions of books. And the connection to the Lake District and other parts of the English countryside
I've been on a couple of cruises in the last few years. The first was to the south Pacific (On the ship pictured above on the morning we set sail) which was a similar cruise to the one in the tagged book. The second cruise was a few months ago in the Carribean #letstravelaugust #aussieauthors #awwc
Many many years ago I joined an online forum for Sara Donati's books. I met a group of women that I am still good online friends with today. We live in different parts of the world but I see some of them every couple of years. This weekend we are in New Orleans. Yesterday we visited two of the houses that Sara Donati isited while she was researching for the books
Went to see Sarah Millican last night. So funny. Now I need to read her book!!
We are part way through an epic week of entertainment. Last Thursday was a foodie thing at the markets, Friday was Phil Collins, Saturday a 50th party, last might Sarah Millican and tonight and tomorrow night Keith Urban
1. Melbourne, Australia
2. Lucinda Riley. One friend had been telling me to read her for years and then she was recced here as well
3. It is 'never going to get to read all those books' big
5. The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley - one of my all time faves
Went to the Cake Bake and Sweets show yesterday. Bought this book (which isn't the one tagged) which should keep me busy for a while at least
Eric Bana is going to be involved in adapting The Dry as a movie and star as Aaron Falk. Based on the description I would never have cast him as Falk but it is exciting to see a big name adaptation
Because we don't have enough TV series on the go we started this tonight. Definitely need some binge watching to finish watching some things
Here I was thinking I still had another minutes of story left even though it felt finished!! Turns out it's 37 minutes of author talk
What an excellent book this was. You could feel the heat and dust, the isolation and the effect that has on people
