This is...my favourite book!!
'Milly-Molly-Mandy' stories by
Joyce Lankester Brisley were always and still are,
some of my favourite books!
as a young girl i so wanted to live in their little village and be their friend!

...but I have enjoyed SO many books over the years how can I just choose one? its hard...
'The world according to Garp' by John Iriving is a huge favourite as is 'To Kill a Mockingbird ' by Harper Lee
and 'The Thorn Birds' by
Colleen McCullough will always be a favourite.... and I really loved 'Accordian Crimes' by Annie Proulx!
currently on my bedside table are the following books:
'My sister's keeper' by Jodi Picoult...given to me by my friend Patricia ' You have to read it!' she said!! ....so far so good!
'I know this much is true' by Wally Lamb
i usually have two or three going at one time.....

its a great theme this week!! thanks Dees - I'm sure I'll get some great book recommendations!
to see everyone's favourite book(s) check out Angela's blog!

Our Easter was so lovely...will post some baking pictures and recipes tommorow! Im super tired right now....oh and someone mentioned in my comments that Brigette Bardot is a racist and so I had to google her to see what happened...i wasnt aware of her recent racial slurs
but I must say she's a good walking advertisement of how important sunscreen really is, non?!!!


  1. Lovely selection of books-you can't beat Milly Molly Mandy!

  2. Wow what a selection! You have great book taste! Hope you will have a lovely Sunday, which shouldn't be a problem with all the bookrecommendations around here! I am making a list of all the books I should read....

  3. Milly, Molly, Anastasia, Mandy sounds like fun! Pretty illos too.

    (I had no idea about Brigit Bardot either!)

    I too love Milly Molly Mandy and so wish I hadn't handed my copies over to an op shop some years ago. Your copy, with that red and white cover is lovely - a treasure.

  5. I just collected my copies of the MMM books from my parents' house, and love, love, love them! I even had a red and white stripy dress to be like her! Thanks for the reminder.

  6. Milly Mollly Mandy i love the sound of that,I never ever heard about them before but I will be on the lookout for sure!♥

  7. I love the Thorn birds... I recently found it on DVD to watch all over again and I can remember buying and devouring the book in the 80's...

    To kill a mockingbird is a fabulous book. Good choice.
