Michelle Magorian is such a brilliant author. Best-known for Goodnight, Mister Tom, she writes for young adults/children.
Husband saw me browsing in the Teen section in the library and he said, 'Aren't they a bit too young for you?' Which I suppose in theory they are, but they're such a lovely change from chick lit and light-hearted murders (if a murder can be light-hearted).
I read most last thing at night in bed and I can't cope with anything too challenging at that time and the young adult books fit my bill exactly. Well-written, great characters, wonderful stories, what more could I want?
I've recently enjoyed A Little Love Story and Just Henry both by Michelle Magorian as well as Changeling by Philippa Gregory.
I have a few adult books on my want-to-read list including The Supremes at Earl's All-You-can-Eat as recommended by Rose and Bastard Out of Carolina, recommended by one of the men in Zac's. What I need is a holiday - or at least some more sunny weather - so I can sit down and read for hours.
