Books I finished in March 2017

I’m still not doing too well with that “finishing books” resolution but here are the ones that I completed in March. I’m nearly at the end of a few though so hopefully April will be a bumper month!

The Unmumsy Mum – Sarah Turner

I very rarely laugh out loud at books but I LOLed numerous times at this one, until I got to the chapter where she talks about losing her own mum, and then I most definitely got something in my eye. This book is so true to life, and just so incredibly British! If you like The Unmumsy Mum Facebook page you will love it.

The Unmumsy Mums: A Collection of Your Hysterical Stories from the Frontline of Parenting

This is a little Kindle freebie companion piece to The Unmumsy Mum, and will definitely appeal to fans of the Facebook page. It’s pretty amusing and quick to read, and will raise a few embarrassed chortles of recognition and horror.

The Children of Green Knowe – Lucy M Boston

I have mixed feelings about this classic children’s book. It starts off so well, with a deliciously creepy setting in which a young boy goes to stay with his great-grandmother in an old manor house surrounded by floodwater. And there are other children there, children who lived there hundreds of years before. Are they ghosts? Presences? Energy imprints? We never find out, and actually nothing much really happens. Even the great showdown with the sinister “demon tree” Green Noah passes by in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment. I wanted to love it, but I was left disappointed. One of the sequels (The River at Green Knowe) came bundled with it, but I’m not sure I will bother.
