I have been distracting myself by reading a lot of books. Well, I bought 3 books yesterday and I have finished one already (yes, I’m a fast reader) and I’m just beginning the second book. The first book I read was Wildthorn by Jane England which is set in Victorian England. It covers the period of time a young girl of 17 years spent in an asylum. She commited there because her cousin’s fiance (at the time – but later on husband, obivously) thought she was insane because of her desire to become a doctor like her father. It deals with women struggling to cope in society what with men’s oppressiveness (which sucks, who died and made men the rulers of the world?) and the main character’s, Louisa, newly discovered interest in women (yes, in that way). I thought it was an excellent book and would definitely recommend you give it a read. The next book that I have started is Pimpernelles: The Pale Assassin by Patricia Elliot. This book is set in France just when the revolution is about to start. I’ve only just read the beginning bit but this is what the blurb says:

Eugenie de Boncoeur’s sheltered life changes for ever as revolution grips France and the hated aristocrats are hunted down. Eugenie tries desperately to help her brother Armand escape from death, but soon she must flee to save her own life. Who will find her first: the mob, the revolutionary guards or, most terrifying of all, the sinster pale assassin himself?

Sounds good, oui? I also bought the book Rumours by Anna Godberson which is the second book in a trilogy. The first book is called Luxe, it’s a pretty good book. I really like fictional books that are set in olden-age England or other countries. What I liked about Jane England was the fact that this story and most of her other stories are based on true stories, so where some bits are fictional most is true and it makes it that all more gritty.

My mum found my school report. Let’s just say that it didn’t go down too well and I wasn’t allowed to go to Thorpe Park – which really, really sucks. Lucky I got to see Mutay yesterday. We paroozed around Peckham – KFC, Boneless Banquet (yum!) and then made a stop in Superdrugs. We also went to the bank because the silly moose (love you really :D) lost her bank book. Hopefully, I’ll be allowed out by Friday because I plan to go shopping with Mutay at Westfield and finally get my two friends their birthday presents. I have work tomorrow which kind of made my mum happy (she just wants to me to work and have no fun, I swear down), so I’ll go from there and ask if I can go to Thorpe Park at all this summer.

I have recently become addicted to playing Kingdom Hearts – it is such a brilliant game!!! Seriously, I could go on and on about this game but I think I’ll leave that for another blog. However, I love all the Disney characters featured in the game – I’m currently at Agrabah. Yay for Aladdin, Jasmine and the Genie. Oh, and Abu the monkey. Can’t forget him!

PS. I LOVE books ๐Ÿ™‚

    I see that you have added Quiz. ^^ Or I think that’s quiz.. Hahha, I’m guessing you checked out the Plug-ins page. You know, if you looked around my site you may find a lot. ^^ I happen to have a tutorial on making WordPress themes. If you need help feel free to ask, e-mail would be best so we don’t constantly have to comment each other’s sites. Or MSN. Whichever you prefer.

    I love to read as well.
    The book you just finished sounds really good and I will have to give it a shot! If you really like to read as much as I do, you should look into getting an Amazon Kindle. They are pricey but actually ended up saving me money, with the amount of books I was buying xD

    Have you read any of Jodi Picoult’s novels? I love them, you should check some out. My favorites are The Tenth Circle and The Pact (:

    Pimpernelles sounds like a good read. I like the idea of having the mysterious assassin among all of that other plot…….. lol nice new anti-spam quiz.

    Yeah, In the Time of the Butterflies is a MUST READ. xD Hahahha, isn’t there a name for that kind of book though? Like semi-non-fiction/fiction. xD
