I have just finished reading "the help". This is a great read, very thought provoking. It made me realise just how far we have come as a society, tho sadly a lot of the problems in this book are still exist.

My favourite holiday read was "the Elegance of the Hedgehog" by Muriel Barbery. Very French! Madame Michel (Renee) was such a prickly character - very conscious of her social class and so determined not to be lovable. Also liked the characters Paloma and Kakuro who together help Renee find the confidence to "be anything she wants to be". Loved this one.

I also read 'The Elegance of the Hedgehog' over the holidays. A beautiful and touching story! The film 'The Hedgehog' is a wonderful adaptation of the novel. It is very true to the book and the additional animation is captivating.

The Elegance of the Hedgehog is very popular. The Hills Shire Library holds 10 copies of this title. It is also available on digital download and DVD. Run and grab your copy today if you havent already read it. Its well worth it.

I've just read the"Royal Diary Series- Elizabeth I". It was the most amazing fictional diary I've ever read. I thought it will be boring because most historical people's diary are boring but this was surprisingly interesting! My favourite book.
