Good basic info that I could understand even though I am just beginning to garden. My only comment is that, as a total beginner, I had trouble deciding which plot I was best to start off with. Added 26/01/2013 by Catherine

Bones are forever / by Reichs, Kathy,

Publication: London : William Heinemann, 2012 . 288 p. ; 24 cm. Date: 2012

I love Kathy Reichs normally but I didn't end up finishing this. The story is full of distractions that I found spoilt it for me. Yet the story itself is interesting. Pity! Added 26/01/2013 by Catherine

Home front / by Hannah, Kristin,

Publication: New York : St. Martin's Press, 2012 . 390 p. ; 25 cm. Date: 2012

This book is a book that you wont want to put down until you finish it. I first opened it yesterday at lunch time, read it till 3.00 a.m. this morning when my eyes would no longer stay open and have finished it this afternoon. It is a novel but is so realistic it could be a true story. A book that will be enjoyed my many I know.

Haunting Violet / by Harvey, Alyxandra,

Publication: London : Bloomsbury, 2011 . 343 p. ; 20 cm. Date: 2011

Reasonably good read. A strange plot unlike anything else I have read. Strangely enticing read, though an unusual topic. Caitlin Added 01/10/2012 by Catherine

Inheritance / Ages 14+ by Paolini, Christopher,

Publication: London : Doubleday Children's, 2011 . xviii, 860 p. : 25 cm. Date: 2011

A story that delves into the mythical and grabs hold of you. When you put it down you almost immediatly yearn to re-emerge yourself in Alagaesia. If you are a reader I would recommend the series; if not I doubt you could stick to it and it would just waste your time. Caitlin Added 01/10/2012 by Catherine
