Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. I'm reading this along with Danielle. I borrowed a copy from the library but I'll only have to keep renewing it and I'm enjoying it, so I bought it. The copy in the shop was slightly damaged - so I got a discount, can't be bad.
Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, because I enjoyed Half of a Yellow Sun (I wrote about it here). It was one of the 3 for 2 books and the marketing worked, because I then had to pick 2 more books.
I bought The Gathering by Anne Enright - the 2007 Booker Prize winner, because I've read mixed reveiws and wanted to see for myself.
And Owen Sheers' Resistance because it looks so interesting - a war story but this time an imagined history of what could have happened if D-Day had failed and the Nazis had invaded Britain.
And now I'm off to cook the dinner and hopefully read some more of Les Miserables in my new copy (I'm only up to page 164).
