It’s nearly a month before my 40th and yay! I finaly have achieved my goal of reading 40 books before 40. I realised half way through that this goal is purely for enjoyment and so I gravitated towards typical romance novels at the end as I find them easy to read and perfect escapism. My last book The Perfect Match was just that and I loved how the book shared a bit of a behind the scenes look at the real estate business. However, if I did have to summarise the books I enjoyed the most I have to say my top 3 are Still Me, The Elephant Whisperer and Born a Crime! Best of all through this project I found an author I love, and so happy that Katie Fforde has so many more novels waiting for me to read.
