And then there were none
Tales of the Unexpected. I absolutely love Roald Dahl's Childrens books and hadn't realized he had done any writing aimed at adults, so I was very intrigued when I saw this book at a second-hand bookstore. Overall an entertaining read, some stories were better than others, some definitely made me squirm (definitely NOT for children!). Many caught me off guard with the surprise endings and some were just downright amusing.

The Great Divorce by C. S. Lewis I love this book, despite not being a Christian. It taught me how easy it is to be weighed down by suffering and that by recognising our own limitations we can get back on the right path (for C S Lewis this was of course towards God and heaven). Wonderful, engaging reading for those of all faiths and none.

The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion. From one of America’s iconic writers, a stunning book of electric honesty and passion. Joan Didion explores an intensely personal yet universal experience: a portrait of a marriage--and a life, in good times and bad--that will speak to anyone who has ever loved a husband or wife or child.
