These were books I read from April - June.

Interesting read about Lady Jane Grey, who was on the throne for 9 days before Queen Mary 1 could rightfully take her place as monarch. It really showed how ambitious her parents were and what importance was placed on having a son in those time (Much like it still is in China).

I loved 'Death on the Nile' and with my forthcoming train journey coming up I thought this one would be fun. She didn't disappoint and I loved this, maybe Agatha Christie's most famous Poirot. I now have 3 books of hers waiting to take on the Trans-Siberian with me. Surely you can't go wrong with an author outsold only by Shakespere and the Bible?!

Another recommendation from Nicola. I was intrigued what had made her burst out crying whenshe was reading this on the beach in Thailand! This book was a good read, although I had kinda guessed what had happened to the guy in the story. Still a nice one and easy to get through.

A book I've heard about a lot, and one of the modern classics so I thought it was something I 'should' read. It has been compared with Catcher in the Rye, which I hated. But this one didn't disappoint as all! It was a great read, and I finished the book within a week. Fantastically written and reminicent of 'Girl Interrupted' which is one of my favourite films!

Fantastic tales from a present day nomad. Brilliant stories from various articles he's written, and a great addition was the end notes where he gives insights into what was happening when he wrote each article as well as extras that were cut out of the original published pieces. Not that I need any help but it definitely added to my wanderlust and dreams of far away places.
