One of the things I love about holidays, is the chance to read - a past time I rarely find time for normally.
My first book was by one of my favourite authors - Adriana Trigiani - "Queen of the big time". Most of Adriana's books pull from her family's Italian/American roots and stories. I loved this book. It was heart warming and nostalgic. I would love this to be made into a film - but I always think that about her books.
Petite Anglaise blog - purely by accident back in 2004. I found myself drawn in by the real life adventures of this Yorkshire girl who was living and loving in Paris. I couldn't wait for her to post her daily doings (anonymously at the time) and followed her love life, her family life and work life avidly. This was one of the first blogs I had read and I was gripped.
