New Book Time ... Finally!!




Finally I got around to finishing "My sister's keeper" Loved it - although I kind of predicted the end - I wasn't sure how or when it was going to happen - and it made me sob lot's when it did!
I loved the character of Campbell and his relationship with Julia it really made the book for me and distracted from the slightly annoying portrayal of Sara!


Really want to see the film now!


So once I had finished that book and was ready to move on I was already upstairs tucked up in bed - not being near my bookshelf to choose my next one, I remembered I had a book upstairs my mum bought me back from her holiday's - which has now become my next choice ... so far so good :D.

The wedding season:
Sarah Stratford is a wedding planner hiding a rather inconvenient truth - she doesn't believe in love. Or not for herself, anyway. But as the confetti flutters away on the June breeze of yet another successful wedding she somehow finds herself agreeing to organise two more, on the same day and only two months away. Luckily Sarah has two tried and tested friends on hand to help her. Elsa, an accomplished dress designer who likes to keep a very low profile, and Bron, a multi-talented hairdresser who lives with her unreconstructed boyfriend and who'd like to go solo in more ways than one. As the big day draws near, all three women find that patience is definitely a virtue in the marriage game. And as all their working hours are spent preparing for the weddings of the year, they certainly haven't got any time to even think about love. Or have they?

Watch the movie, but the ending is different than the book. And the perspective of the movie is different than the book.

Approach it as the book is great on it's own. And the movie is great on it's own. Don't compair or you'll be doing a What the heck?

I've never read Katie Fforde's books. Are they fun? This one definitely seems like a good one for you to read right now.

You look so, so pretty in your black dress. Good to hear that you are feeling better.
