This is a bank holiday weekend in the UK so I get a whole extra day to get chores done or what is more likely to happen I will spend the extra day not getting any chores done but a few books read!
I did get completed distracted from my reading plan by reading recommendations. Note to self.....don't listen to random recommendations. I am not even sure where I read about Never Kiss a Rake by Anne Stuart.This was a complete departure from anything I have read in about a decade. I used to read a lot of historical fiction and historical romance but my tastes changed. Never Kiss a Rake was 100% historical romance. It was described as being a retelling of Jane Eyre. I love Charlotte Brontë and have read Jane Eyre a few times over. Unfortunately for me, Never Kiss a Rake was nothing like Jane Eyre. I think the only thing that was the similar was that the hero Adrian Bruton, aka Rochester was rich and married. On the plus side this was a '2 tube journey' book so I got to work and back without having to challenge myself too much or worried that I would miss a plot point.
Hopefully, this weekend I will get back on my reading track and leave the recommendations for another time. To find out whether I succeed then come back next Sunday. Until then Happy Reading.
