One Day In May By Catherine Alliot


I have gone for another bit of chick-lit this time.

I started reading this on my first break on night shift last night. First impressions?? I love the articulation of the sentances (if that makes sense??) What the character’s are doing is described so vividly whilst, at the same time, it manages to give the reader an idea of what the personalities of the two females are like. All this within the first few paragraphs too which I believe is a clever little tool.

I am intrigued already….


Now I know this looks like I don’t do anything on night shift but read, which I can assure you is far from the truth. I am very busy in the job that I do and some nights I don’t get a chance to read at all. Therefore, when I can(I will not jinx it by using the Q word as I am there again tonight), I grab snippets of downtime to sit and read.


This book is well written, I love how it starts with the present time, then goes back to tell the story of how the main character got to where she was today. These Chapters have particularly impressed me as they are very topical; politics and the war in Sarajevo. It is cleverly done, topics that I would not necessarily choose to read on are woven cleverly into a Chick Lit story and, although you do pick up on the character’s raw emotion that she experiences during these times, it is  done in a wonderfully warm way. Particularly the war part; compellingly written and I felt such compassion for the character.

I then love how it flicks to present day again, tells that story and then slips back into the past to fill in the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that are touched upon in the present story.

I am hooked …


Well, after spending my days off with my nose well and truly stuck in this book; from snug on the sofa with cushions and a wrap whilst this Horrendous Hurricane weather whirls around outside, to the confines of my comfy bed this morning – a nice and perfect place that brought me to the finale of this story.

This book has surprised me in more ways than one; although I keep giving it a ‘Chick Lit’ reference, it wasn’t as quite light a reading as I thought – and I mean this in an extremely positive way. The journey that you follow of the main character, you really do feel every bump and turn along the way – and some events took me by surprise. I will not spoil the book for future readers, but i did not expect the ending, nor the channel that the writer takes you down.

I applaud the author, this book has taught me what makes a good story in numerous ways; the way it is written, the subjects it features and the way it is all woven together to produce a warm, feel good book.

A high recommendation.

9th Judgement by James Patterson

AUGUST 25th 2011

I am nicely tucked up in bed ready to let my mind wander …

Missuswolf James Patterson 9th Judgement

AUGUST 28TH 2011 UPDATE – I am officially a MASSIVE James Patterson fan!
3 days into it, page 175 Chapter 44….and I am LOVING this book!
Particularly the way it is written. I love the short, snappy chapters that drift from the point of view of one of the Detectives to that of the reader exploring different character’s lives. The storyline is gripping, I am constantly wanting to read on to find out what happens.
This is a lovely bit of escapism for me to enjoy on my breaks at work. Working long hours doing a mentally exhausting job, I find my way of switching off and winding down is to escape from it all and immerse myself completely in a different life, a different world, a different character whose so different to mine.
And this book is doing the job fantastically!
Well, I actually finished this in the wee small hours of Tues 30th August during a (unusually) quiet nightshift.

Absolutely fantastic! It had my emotions riding hide toward the end and took me on a rollercoaster ride as to what was happening. Fantastic storyline with intriguing characters. I will definitely be reading more!!

Wedding Season

Wedding Season

I started reading this book whilst on my jolly hols in Mexico. After reading what was considered a heavy, Ruby dark but nevertheless enjoyable book in cheap nfl jerseys The Strand by Stephen King, wholesale mlb jerseys I felt that whilst lying on a beach soaking up some rays cheap jerseys I required a bit of lighthearted, easy to read entertainment.

Plus the fact I i was away on a group holiday and I’m easily distracted so I didn’t want to read something that required a lot of thought involvement. I don’t want this to sound as if i am discrediting missuswolf’s this book as I am not by any means. I am still reading through it as I got a bit more distracted than i thought (by the pool bar – damn you Ecological Baileys and Frangelico!)

I felt this cheap jerseys book was an appropriate read on the holiday I was on as I was away for one of my best friend’s wedding.

It’s a lighthearted book that cheap nba jerseys revolves around the lives of three women King involved in planning weddings and follows their experiences in their personal lives in the build up to a big Wedding. To date I still New have a few more pages to go but as the nights start Lolos drawing in I am hoping to get cosy about on the couch and get through a few more books.

The Stand by Stephen King

23rd August 2011

This is a compelling read!

Missuswolf Stephen King The Stand

I have never read wholesale nba jerseys Stephen King before, I had only previously watched his films. I picked of this book after my fellow classmates at my Creative Writing Class raved about what an excellent writer he is.
Admittedly, I had been naive and had tunnel vision when it came to reading, hence never picking up one of Mr Kings works of art before. My literature intake was limited to light reading of the chick-lit nature. And whilst there is absoloutly nothing wrong with reading these kind of novels (they still hold a firm place in my heart for a good piece of escapism) I am delighted that I decided to deviate from my usual choice.
I started this back in May and Information it took me a while to read (i wouldn’t consider myself a slow reader but there are a lot of pages and the writing was small – premio! no excuse of course – but a wee justification hehe) I finished reading this on the The plane on the way to world! Mexico.
A must read – a thought provoking what if? What if the majority of the human race was High wiped out within weeks? Throughout this made we want to read on and on to find out what happens and I wasn’t disappointed. The characters are great and display a gripping way of cheap jerseys online how they cope, adapt and power Качественная forward cheap nfl jerseys with all that is thrown at them.
I am pleased I have stepped across to the dark side!

Welcome to missuswolf’s world!

Hi (or Hola as I keep saying after spending the past couple of weeks holidaying in Mexico. Yep, it’s a hard life)

Speaking of attempting to use the local language when holidaying, it is a hard habit to get out of once touched down in the rather cooler climate of the UK. In my local the afternoon after I had landed (somethings never change, a drink in the local to prolong that holiday feeling) I found my self nearly saying ‘Hola Seniorita’ to the barMAN and then having to bite my tongue to say ‘Gracias!’

Oh dear.

Plus, having to pay a fiver for a Baileys and Amaretto (a must have pool time refreshment habit that was picked up) after throwing them down my neck free on All Inclusive for two weeks nearly had me comotosed before a drop of alcohol had touched my lips.

Anywho, I would like to wish you a very warm welcome to missuswolf’s world, a place where I can really get in touch with my creative writing side! I am new to all this blogging so you will have to bare with me. I am using this blog as a way of exploring and developing my writing; a place to discuss what I am currently reading and to eventually showcase my own writing.

Happy Reading little wolves!
