BOOK CLUB NEW (book for oct nov dec) 
OCT BOOK 
THE ISLAND BY VICTORIA HISLOP 
The blurb 
On the brink of a life-changing decision, Alexis Fielding longs to find out about her mother’s past. But Sofia has never spoken of it. All she admits to is growing up in a small Cretan village before moving to London. When Alexis decides to visit Crete, however, Sofia gives her daughter a letter to take to an old friend, and promises that through her she will learn more. Arriving in Plaka, Alexis is astonished to see that it lies a stone’s throw from the tiny, deserted island of Spinalonga – Greece’s former leper colony. Then she finds Fotini, and at last hears the story that Sofia has buried all her life: the tale of her great-grandmother Eleni and her daughters and a family rent by tragedy, war and passion. She discovers how intimately she is connected with the island, and how secrecy holds them all in its powerful grip…

The acclaimed million-copy number one bestseller and winner of Richard & Judy’s Summer Read 2006 from Victoria Hislop is a dramatic tale of four generations, rent by war, illicit love, violence and leprosy, from the thirties, through the war, to the present day.

NOV BOOK CLUB READ 
CHRISTMAS GIFTS AT THE BEACH CAFE BY LUCY DIAMOND 89p
out 6 nov 
The blurb 
With her Cornish Beach Café closed for the winter, Evie Flynn should be looking forward to lazy days and a happy Christmas, with nothing more pressing to think about than when to have her next mince pie.

But her sister Ruth is coming to stay, in a cloud of heartbreak and bitterness following her marriage breakdown, along with her three unhappy children, and Evie knows she’ll have her work cut out, trying to spread some festive cheer. Then her boyfriend Ed breaks the news that he’s going to spend Christmas in London, for family reasons, and her heart sinks even further.

Add in to the mix a lost dog plus the hotly contested village Christmas bake-off and before long, Evie is feeling the strain. But there are still a few surprises in store for her, that look set to make this Beach Café Christmas the most memorable one yet…

The blurb 
A heartwarming new Christmas novel from Debbie Macomber, internationally bestselling author of Rose Harbor in Bloom, Blossom Street Brides and Starry Night

Harry Mills is a guardian angel on a mission: help Addie Folsom to get her life back on track – and help her find love.
Creating a happy ending for Addie and her neighbour Erich doesn’t seem like much of a challenge. But soon after arriving in the town of Tacoma, Harry realises he might need some guidance. Addie and Erich can’t stand each other; growing up he was popular and outgoing, while she was rebellious and headstrong. Addie would now rather avoid Erich entirely, especially at Christmas.
Harry is going to need all the help he can get, and a bit of divine inspiration, to help Addie and Erich find their Christmas miracle.

Tanya review post on a monday my birthday post Harry Potter

TANYA REVIEW POST ON A MONDAY 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TANYA X 

HARRY POTTER 
I decided last week that I fancied a week of birthday themed books as thought a birthday book would be great to post today on my birthday. I read quite a few but really the books that always remind me of birthdays are the Harry Potter books. Of course they start with both the birthday of Dudley, Harry’s mean cousin, and of Harry Potter himself turning of age to go to Hogwarts the school of magic. The series of books cover Harry and his friends Ron and Hermione through their school years and the many adventures that they get up to along the way against the dark arts and he who must not be named.

I first came across these books as an adult as obviously I am not that young!! I was teaching in a year 5 class, the year after I graduated, and all that the children discussed was the Harry potter books. Obviously I wanted to know what all the fuss was about so read them. Then my husband read them, then my mum and my in laws. Needless to say we were all hooked and could not wait for the next book to be released. For our first anniversary my husband bought me to book set which was then only four books. We eagerly awaited the release of the films. They are good but of course your imagination is better.

We have twice been to the Harry Potter studios once just me and hubby and once with our girls who are now hooked on Harry Potter books. The studios are amazing and even though been twice I could happily go again. The detail that goes into the sets and all the props is outstanding and Of course the added bonus is the butter beer!!!

If you haven’t read Harry Potter I think you should as J K Rowling is an amazing author and her writing technique improves during the series.

About the Author

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was J.K. Rowling’s first novel, followed by the subsequent six titles in the Harry Potter series, as well as three books written for charity: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. The Harry Potter novels have now sold over 450 million copies worldwide and been translated into 77 languages.

I got to say i never read any Harry Potter books Tanya says i the only person that not read any ? 
Have you all read i can not be the only person can i ? 
i seen the films i did enjoy them 
Should i look out for the books ?

The books in order are

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, 

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, 

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,

MY BOOK OF THE WEEK IS 
THE EMERALD COMB 

THE BLURB 
Some secrets are best left buried…

Researching her family tree had been little more than a hobby – until Katie stepped onto Kingsley House’s sprawling, ivy-strewn drive. The house may be crumbling today, but it was once the intimidatingly opulent residence of the St Clairs, Katie’s ancestors. Arriving here two hundred years later, emotion stirs in Katie: a strange nostalgia for a place she’s never seen before… and when Kingsley House comes up for sale, Katie is determined that her family must buy it.

Surrounded by the mysteries of the past, Katie’s pastime becomes a darker obsession, as she searches through history to trace her heritage. But she soon discovers that these walls house terrible secrets. And when forgotten stories and hidden betrayals come to light, the past seems more alive than Katie could ever have imagined.

Moving between the 21st and 19th centuries, The Emerald Comb is a hauntingly evocative novel, perfect for fans of Kate Morton and Rachel Hore.

MY BOOK OF THE MONTH

MRS SINCLAIR’S 
SUITCASE BY LOUISE WALTERS 
The blurb 
Forgive me, Dorothea, for I cannot forgive you. What you do, to this child, to this child’s mother, it is wrong…

Roberta likes to collect the letters and postcards she finds in second-hand books. When her father gives her some of her grandmother’s belongings, she finds a baffling letter from the grandfather she never knew – dated after he supposedly died in the war.

Dorothy is unhappily married to Albert, who is away at war. When an aeroplane crashes in the field behind her house she meets Squadron Leader Jan Pietrykowski, and as their bond deepens she dares to hope she might find happiness. But fate has other plans for them both, and soon she is hiding a secret so momentous that its shockwaves will touch her granddaughter many years later…
Hope you all had a fab month ?

THE SLIVER CHAIN BY PRIMULA. BOND

THE SILVER CHAIN BY PRIMULA BOND
THE BLURB
Bound by passion, she was powerless to resist.

The Silver Chain is the first in the sexy, passionate and addictive Unbreakable Trilogy by Primula Bond.

One dark evening in London, photographer Serena Folkes is indulging her impulsive side with a night-time shoot. But someone is watching her – mysterious entrepreneur Gustav Levi. Serena doesn’t know it yet, but this handsome stranger will change her life forever…

Serena is fascinated by Gustav, the enigmatic owner of the Levi Gallery, and she soon feels an irresistible pull of attraction. The interest is mutual, and Gustav promises to launch Serena’s photographic career at his gallery, but only if Serena agrees to become his exclusive companion.

To mark their agreement, Gustav gives Serena a bracelet to wear at all times. Attached to it is a silver chain of which he is the keeper. With the chain Gustav controls Serena physically and symbolically – a sign that she is under his power.

As their passionate relationship intensifies, Gustav’s hold on the silver chain grows stronger. But will Gustav’s dark past tear them apart?

A seductive and beautifully written novel perfect for fans of erotic romance.
WHAT I SAY
I did enjoy this book but did find it a bit hard to get into
The book very well written you do become involved with the story it was a very sexy read . very sensual at times you may or may no like it to know as much . The descriptions are very full on but written into the story well

You may want to know what the sliver chain is ? It a bracelet that Serena wears all the time it got a small sliver chain attached to it Gustav the keeper of this chain he has the power over Serena
The book will make you laugh, cry, and blush at times

Serena seem to be very innocent girl very fragile we are not sure why but as the story goes on we understand why

Gustav”s very controlling i not sure if i like him at all but we get to hear a lot about him i did soft to him a bit you do connect with them both you do get to know them so well which i like they become your friends
I think the past was very much part of how they both are you will get to see them for them selfs
I was not sure why Serena would go with a man 20 years older may be she thinks he could teach her a thing or two
Serena was a photographer she enjoyed doing night shots she thinks some one watching her at times that someone was Gustav he makes her to promises i would not let any make condition on a friendship is so wrong but that how they become friends
It a very good plot
You will love or hate the book i not sure what i think i did not like Gustav but by the end i like him the character are very deep it got a few twist and turns
I not sure if i like it it was just not my kind of book but was so well written good story just not me
3 stars borrow ok read i wouldn’t read again
