Brown Owl's Guide to Life by Kate Harrison

There are two reasons I read this book.  One, I've read another of Kate Harrison's book, The Secret Shopper's Revenge, which wasn't brilliant but was quite a pleasant read; and two, because I'm a Brownie Leader, and therefore an Owl myself!

This was what I'm now beginning to think is typical Kate Harrison, not a gripping page-turner of a book, but perfect if you just want a quick, easy, nice read.

An obvious plus for me was the reference to Brownies, but as someone who was once I Brownie myself I didn't really believe the story - I can't imagine my Six deciding to meet up over twenty years later - but maybe I was just in a bad pack!

I'm beginning to judge how much I like a book by whether or not I decide that everyone else I know needs to read it, and this one I haven't passed onto anyone, not even the other Brownie Leaders I know.  Make of that what you will!

The Scarpetta Factor by Patricia Cornwell

Every now and again I like a good crime book but unfortunately this wasn't one of the good ones.

I found it quite hard to follow in places, which I don't think was helped by the fact that most of the main characters had similar names, all beginning with 'B'.  Confusing to say the least.

I found that as the book went on it wasn't really compelling me to want to find out what happened at the end, but I persevered and got through it!

Back to the Chit Lit for me I think...
