The last few weeks I have felt that I haven’t really been reading as much as I was at the beginning of the year but having just gone through some old posts on this blog turns out I am not as behind in my life goal as I thought. That is the great thing about this blog that there are some moments in my timeline that are now captured and easily referred to which will help in my later years when dementia hits, or doesn’t based on the current endeavours being achieved in science, or just when I am being ultra critical on myself and need a reality check. I first started reading Marian Keyes work when she was part of the Girls Night In books and really loved her dry, Irish (very translatable to this Aussie) humour and her honest approach to her writing. She does write plenty of romantic novels and I have sampled some of these but they aren’t really my thing, if I am reading one you know I am in a really dark space mentally and trying to claw my way out (it does help). My preference is to Marian’s real life commentary and excepts from her magazine columns and her recent novel, Making It Up As I Go Along, ticks all those boxes.
