The festive season and a run of bugs and illnesses in our house have really hit my reading and blogging but now I'm a bit more human again it's time for a Friday meme. This week GReads is asking Which book from the last 10 you've read would you recommend to a friend?

The only one I have given 5*s of the last ten is The Demi-Monde: Winter by Rod Rees, so it makes sense to recommend that, my review is here. However thinking more about what I would most likely recommend to a friend, that book is probably a bit less mainstream. The House at Sea's End by Elly Griffith is a book I really enjoyed and can see a lot of people I know also liking it so that's the one I'd probably recommend. The review for that book is here.

In the last week I have read and reviewed:

Last Stop Freedom by Ann Nolder Heinz, historical fiction and romance set in 1850s America, and

Thomas Knapp and the Prophet of the Universe by David Daedalus, a sci-fi mystery

I've also finished Surviving the Fog by Stan Morris, and will hopefully have the review completed later. I've also got a review of The Girl in the Box by Sheila Dalton lined up tomorrow, as part of the author's blog tour.

Time to go, thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!

Sorry to hear illness struck your house. That's no fun at all.

Picking one book from the last ten you've read is an interesting challenge. I'll have to go back and read the reviews you mentioned.

It's just been one thing after another, fingers crossed we're all ok now... I found it easier than beng given free rein to choose.
