what i'm reading


a few of the books currently on my reading pile. i've just finished the lovely bones and am now onto when god was a rabbit. i've wanted to read it for so long so i hope it's good! 
i was a bit of a sucker for downton abbey when it was on tv, so mum bought me below stairs for christmas; the history geek in me is going to love it! 
and finally the polaroid book, because lets face it, who doesn't love a book full of pretty pictures! 

just a little side note to say sorry about the lack of posting at the moment. moving, working & a lack of internet makes things pretty difficult, but i'm hoping to be back on track next week. i've got lots of diy's planned and i'm even considering a beauty related post after discovering some pretty awesome mascara. i'm missing reading blogs a lot, but i'm always around on twitter for a chin wag :)

  1. I love The Lovely Bones, one of my favourite books ever! Have you read Alice Sebold's other books? The two I've read are both amazing too!

  4. Downton Abbey is pretty much the best thing in life. I am far too emotionally invested in it. And the Polaroid book looks fascinating!

  10. Do you have a goodreads account? it has an amazing iphone app too... if you do add me on there? (lozkp @ msn . com)
    I love WGwaR, couldnt stop reading it! I read the lovely bones a few years ago, and lent my copy to someone and never saw it again! The film is actually fairly good compared to normal awful book>film type things! Have you seen it?
