My Roald Dahl fest continues! Since my last update, I have “read” James and the Giant Peach, and The BFG.
I liked each of them very much, but did ponder what wonders would have fallen upon James if he just hadn’t tripped under the tree!
I have also finished listening to another audiobook which I’ve had on the go for a while. Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, by Winifred Watson, read by Frances McDormand (who starred as Miss P in a movie adaptation made in 2008). I wasn’t too keen on the reading at first, but then McDormand grew on me, just as this book did. I found it delightful!
I suppose it would be considered a romantic comedy, a fish out of water tale, and not especially earthshattering or controversial. But I really enjoyed it and would recommend it over much of the “chick lit” out there at the moment (not that I’ve read much of that, but in comparison, this book doesn’t make you feel like you are cheating on all the “good” books you should be reading instead!).
And in case you were wondering, the pictures are of the current books on my (not literally) bedside table – all birthday gifts! Thanks to Jody, Lyn and DrK. I do love a knitting book! So many possibilities!
