On My Wish List

As book lovers we often find that our eyes are too big for our bookshelves! So once a month we join the ladies at Book Chick City and take part in their meme ON MY WISH LIST where we post about some of the books we are keen to get our hands on whether they be old books, newly released or those yet to be published.

Harvesting The Heart  by Jodi Picoult

A young woman who was abandoned by her mother when she was 5, left her father behind in Chicago to pursure art school. She marries an ambitious doctor and soon becomes a mother herself. She cannot forget her mother’s absence and the shameful memories of her past, which make her doubt herself. Out of Paige’s struggle to find wholeness, Jodi crafts an absorbing novel that explores issues and emotions we can all relate to.

Having read a couple of Jodi Picoult’s books over the last year I found I enjoyed her contemporary style as well as the way she writes about human emotions.  The topic of the novel sounds very controversial – a young woman was abandoned by her own mother as a baby and now she has a child of her own she doubts her own maternal ability and can’t help but think that maybe her own baby would be better off without her.  As a mother myself this may well prove difficult but interesting reading….

Twitchhiker – How One Man Travelled The World by Paul Smith

Bored in the bread aisle of the supermarket one day, the author wondered how far he could get around the world in 30 days through the goodwill of users of social networking site Twitter.
Having read Helen’s review of this one, I found myself intrigued by the topic and therefore wanting to read the story myself and update my own lack of knowledge about this new way to communicate with the world!

    I’ve only read one Jodi Picoult book so far, but I liked it quite a bit. I actually have a stack on them on my shelf waiting for me to pick them up. They always seem to make their way back down to the bottom of the pile. I’ll have to check to see if Harvesting The Heart is in the stack and bump it up now that I am thinking about it 🙂
