One Moment, One Morning by Sarah Rayner.

The review on the cover of this book says that this book is a "real page turner, you'll want to inhale it in one breath".  This is totally true.  I loved this book, and didn't want to put it down.

I hadn't even read the description of this book before I started reading.  It would probably sound like quite a depressing book if you knew the subject matter beforehand, but the way it was written, although being sad was really heartwarming and quite inspirational.

The story of friendship is lovely, and all three main characters are very believable.

Definitely one I would recommend.

The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson.

As much as I enjoyed first Millennium book, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, I found it quite hard to read due to it being quite graphically violent, and also there were so many characters introduced so quickly that I struggled to keep up!

This book I found much easier to read, it was much more focused on The Girl, Lisbeth, and I knew some of the characters already, therefore not as much to get confused about.  It was only nearer to the end of the book that I started to get a bit muddled with the number of police officers, journalists and criminals involved.

The mystery in the book was exciting and kept me interested all the way through.  You learnt a lot more about Lisbeth in this book which I found interesting, and you can finally put all the pieces of 'her' puzzle together.

Millennium Trilogy #2

Fifty Shades Freed by E. L. James

I thought this book took a while to get going, the first hundred or so pages seemed to be much of the same with little plot to keep me interested, but once the storyline kicked it, like the other books, I just couldn't put it down.

There's a lot of action (not just in the bedroom), twists and turns and even more developments in their whirlwind relationship.

I have to admit I was a bit sad when I finished the books, much like the Twilight Saga books, I've spent so much time over a short period getting engrossed in the story, I was sad to have it end.

I would definitely recommend these books.  They're like nothing I've read before and are addictive from the start.

Fifty Shades Darker by E.L. James

I liked this book much more than the first one.  Compared to the first book, where there isn't much action other than in the bedroom, this second book in the trilogy has a much better storyline and lots of twists and turns.

I can see this book being made into a film a lot easier than I can imagine the first becoming a film.

By the time you get onto the second book you're used to reading all the sex scenes, and they start to get a bit samey, but as soon as I'd finished this book I had to run out and buy the next so it can't be that bad.

Girl On The Run by Jane Costello

I really enjoyed this book.  It was another great example of an easy to follow, fun filled chick-lit read.

The main character was a girl who like myself had never run anywhere in her life, and would much prefer to be sat on the sofa with a bag of crisps; until she decides to join a running group.

There are lots of good characters in this book, and it covers quite a range of topics from running your own business to dealing with serious illness, and ups and downs in friendships and relationships.

Despite enjoying the book (and the equally enjoyable Mum On the Run by Fiona Gibson) I still can't run for more than a minute without feeling like I might collapse!!  But if you're in need of a fun chick-lit read I would recommend this one.
