Book Review of the Month 3- Her Fearful Symmetry

I have wanted to read this book for a while now and I asked this as a gift for Christmas. I had previously read The Time Travellers Wife so was interested in what Audrey Niffenegger's next novel would be like.

Her Fearful Symmetry is a dark, yet beautifully written ghost story dealing with the relationships of a range of different characters, set amongst the setting of Highgate Cemetery. It is ultimately a love story, addressing the power of love from beyond the grave, and as the magazine Elle states on the back cover of the book " There may be ghosts, but it's human stories that glitter".

I enjoyed this book and like the Time Travellers Wife, was a book that I couldn't put down, hence it has only taken me a couple of days to read.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good ghost story (though it wasn't too spooky) and anyone who wants an orginal love story without the mush.

Good Evening from Pickle Land

Hope to speak to you very soon

Love Lesley xx

November has been a strange yet good month. I have been made redundant from my job in local government (my last day at work was Friday 25th - official day of leaving is tomorrow 30th). And though I'm worried about finding another job, I'm definitely looking forward to having some free time (whilst looking for another job) and doing the many things on my list of things to do - like sort out my craft room, Christmas shopping, JYC 2011, a good clear out and doing a little cooking/baking.




Leading up to last Friday was a mix of emotions and though I am not sad to leave my place of work (it feels the right time to leave), I am sad not to be working with some people. But you can not stay in a place just for the people, and I've got to do the right thing for me for once.




However, November has been a really good month on the craft front. I firstly attended the Sarah's Cards Retreat in Warrington (see picture below with two lovely ladies Mandy and Mell) and then this weekend I att…
