    Just finished reading The Hardy Boys in The Great Santa's Reindeer Caper.

    Frank and Joe face almost certain death at the hands of some nasty men who hurt people. They have guns and say bad things. However, at the last minute, they manage to escape by stealing Santa's sled and drive it to Lapland Airport where they stowaway on a flight back to the USA. They leave Rudolf a big carrot as a thank you.

    I've just finished reading "Metamorphosis" by Franz Kafka. It's about a man who shares a room with a giant beetle who won't let him out. As far as I can make out, all his friends stop coming to see him and he loses his job. In the end, the beetle is his only friend and even the beetle turns into a caterpillar at the end.

    It was a bit confusing to be honest and I found the whole thing a bit far fetched.

    I've just finished reading Brian Cant's autobiography "Humpty & Me : Our Life Together".

    It's a bit difficult to follow. From what I can gather, it's about a human and a stuffed toy who live together and have a lot of issues with each other. Humpty is a bit overweight so I can see where it's coming from. Cant isn't a nice man at all.

    Last night I finished a book called I'll Give You the Sun. It was an incredibly emotional and moving book, one of the best I've read in a while.

    At first, Jude and her twin brother are NoahandJude; inseparable. Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude wears red-red lipstick, cliff-dives, and does all the talking for both of them.

    Years later, they are barely speaking. Something has happened to change the twins in different yet equally devastating ways . . . but then Jude meets an intriguing, irresistible boy and a mysterious new mentor.

    The early years are Noah’s to tell; the later years are Jude’s. But they each have only half the story, and if they can only find their way back to one another, they’ll have a chance to remake their world.

    I love reading biography books so well the last one I finished was: "The Way I see It - A look back at my life on Little House" by Melissa Anderson.

    It was an interesting book that gave me some insight into what it was like being a child star in the 1970s. It had some information from the filming of the TV-series that I didn't know before. But there were too long episode descriptions for my taste. I mean most people who read it are probably fans of the Tv-series or at least people who have viewed it and then you already know what happens in which episode.

    I like having detailed synopses for reference but perhaps they are out of place here if this is primarily her biography rather than a history of the show.

    Well it's the balance I guess. The synopsis is like maybe 3 pages and the stories surrounding the filming is like a half page. So the synopsis are longer than the new info.
