Belated Birthday!

Oops… I forgot my own blog birthday. On 10th April I got to my second year of blogging – how time does fly.

To celebrate, I’ll be giving away a copy of a book I loved last year – Yellow by Janni Visman. It was in my top reads of 2008, and I first chatted about it here.

Stella is agoraphobic and neurotic and jealous – Yellow is a sparse, taut narrative which is psychologically clever without being scary (why does ‘psychological’ always come with ‘thriller’? Not in this case, really). And there’s a cat. Ideal. For a more lucid discussion of the book, see that first review.

Pop your name in the hat, as it were, and I’ll do a draw on Sunday.

    Now that I’ve de-lurked for a bit, it’s only polite to wish you a happy belated birthday…!

    Ah – this was the book you pointed out to me in the £2 bookshop…and I stupidly opted not to buy it! Well, I’ve come crawling back now…

    Okay, I’m jumping in as well! Finally have managed to get around to pulling The Mitfords off of my shelf based on a recommendation by you. Not that far in yet but it is highly addictive isn’t it!
