This weeks question is:

"What are you reading now and why are you reading it?"
I am currently in the middle of two reads.
1. A Place of Secrets by Rachel Hore - paperback
2. The Girl on the Wall : One Life's Rich Tapestry by Jean Baggott - Hardback

I spotted A place of secrets when in Smiths, having just had a blood test,and was feel sorry for myself and in need of a reward, although my TBR pile did not really need to grow any more!
The Girl on the Wall was reviewed in one of the Family History magazines last year and I was intrigued. It was a wonderful way of combining two of my obsessions - reading and genealogy.


  1. Both of those sound interesting! I enjoy genealogy as well. New follower here! Here's what I'm reading:

  2. Just stopping by via the hop, thought I would say hello!

    I have been tracing my family tree for a few years now, interesting stuff!

    And the plot thickens...

  3. A Place of Secrets looks great! Enjoy the reads!

    I have always wanted to trace my family tree; seeing your blog makes me want to do it even more now!

  4. Your books sound interesting. I enjoy a variety of genre. This weekend I started a memoir called Major Dream: From Immigrant Housemaid to Harvard Ph.D.(author Jin Kyu Robertson Ph.D. It's about how one woman achieved the American Dream. The story is inspirational and simply amazing. I'd highly recommend it!
