Day 1 (which I should’ve done yesterday) was ‘A favourite book of 2011 (so far)’ and I’ve had to pick two (one non-fic and one fic) because I couldn’t help myself.
As I read Delusions of Gender by Cordelia Fine I had to keep a post it pad next to me to mark the pages. I read bits out to David. I read bits aloud to myself. It made me rage and smack myself in the forehead, but it made me laugh a lot too. It’s an amazing book and you should read it. Whoever you are.
I love Sarra Manning’s YA novels. I loved her first adult novel Unsticky so much that the minute I finished reading it, I wanted to start it again. Like Unsticky, her second adult novel – You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me – jumped straight onto my favourite “chick lit” novels of all time. It’s funny, sexy, romantic and I didn’t want it to end.
