Exactly as title suggests, I was given a £50 voucher as a belated birthday gift from last weekend.
Now I need a bit of help. I usually always only read from the crime/thriller genre with a dip into sci-fi(??) through Dean Koontz and the occasional chick lit crap book when I want trash. I also read a lot of travel/humour type books like tony hawk and Bill Bryson
I thought i might use this money to step out of my comfort zone.[scared emoticon]. On the recommendations from the thread about books that took your breath away, I have ordered a copy of twilight, so i have sort of drifted slightly away from my usual.
So any books that you can recommend that I might read would be great. I know its a mammoth task, as you dont have a lot to go on, I will consider just about anything that isnt about war/history, mislit, I have a read a few of the classics but am not a massive fan.
Can anyone help, or should I just blow it on koontz, kellerman, gerritsen, slaughter and cornwell?
I'd be tempted to spend it on one expensive thing rather than lots of cheaper things: something like a Le Creuset pan maybe, or one of the things that have been on my wish list for 827 years but the price refuses to come down
I read "Little Face" first and really thought it was good and then went on to read the rest. She has a cold way of writing which doesn't appeal to everyone. "The Point of Rescue" is I think even better.
Both about £4 or weirdly 0.01p second hand on amazon.
How about a dvd? Have you seen Rebecca recently? the Olivier one? - I watched that the other day again and loved it all over again.
Am sticking to books. DP and I have a massive collection of dvds, we buy about 1 a week. So its just books books books. Reading is the one thing thats mine, DP never reads for fun, only for work. He hasnt read a book since high school
