The Seamstress by Maria Duenas book review

I was drawn to the plot line because it mixed mystery, espionage and fashion (who knew?!) and Duenas paints evocative descriptions of exotic locations. I was absolutely transported to Tangiers, Madrid, Tetouan and Lisbon of the 1930s but when I got there I found myself needing a more nuanced emotional story. Women who consistently get butterflies in their stomach, annoy me.

Have you read a good book lately? I’d love to hear what you recommend, it might end up next months reading!

Happy Friday, book reviews & give away!

I have a copy of ‘Fashionista’s Guide To Shopping In Melbourne 2013,’ and ‘Fashion & Flemington,’ to give away to one lucky Lady Melbourne reader (clear that coffee table!)

Current Reading

Here is what is on my current reading list and as usual please chip in with your two cents worth because I love to pepper my reading with suggestions.

December Reading

I haven’t done a reading list since July on the blog, which isn’t to say that I haven’t been reading but just haven’t published it.

July Reading

…or brains are sexy, so says The Gardener.

I thought that was quite funny because we all read don’t we but it is nice to talk about what’s on our current reading lists.
