With baby's arrival a bit delay I've already managed to keep my promise to myself that I made last week and squeezed in a quick trip to the local bookshop and picked up a bit of reading material which is now helping me through the early morning pregnancy insomnia: The Little Village School
by Gervase Phinn and Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?
by Jeanette Winterson.
I've read plenty of Gervase Phinn before, but this is the first of his novels that I've tried. When it comes to Jeanette Winterson I have of course heard of Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit
but it's not something that I've read – I was just taken in by the blurb on the back cover. I'm hoping these don't disappoint and I'm already starting to pull together lists of what I want to read next – a dangerous thing to do!
