July 2012 Books and Movies

Highland Fling
Katie Fforde

My friend Amy passed this one on, and I thought it was a decent, light read. Too harlequin romance for my liking, with the "explosions went off behind my eyes and my skin sizzled as we kissed" type mooning about, but the story was pretty good. I like the aristocratic Scottish setting, and the different characters. A good read, if you like romance novels.

I See You Everywhere
Julia Glass

Definitely not my favourite of the Glass novels, but still a very interesting book all the same. This focuses on the lives of two sisters over three decades from the early 80s to the early 2000s. There is quite a twist to the ending, but I'm still not sure if it was a good one. Once I got to know the characters, I enjoyed it much more. Not really like Three Junes or The Whole World Over, so be warned. A good read, but not Glass' best.
