Favourite Reads of 2015: Anita


I’ve asked some of my fav people and keen readers to share their favourite books of 2015. Like my fav people, these books are a jumble of ages, genres and lengths…I like my friends and my books DIVERSE.

Anita. Where to start? Anita is the woman I ring in times of crisis and in times of joy. She has seen me through some of the hardest, hardest times in my life – in fact she was the first person I called when I found out my brother had died. I met Anita as a beginning teacher and she has been an un-official teaching mentor ever since and then she became a parenting mentor and at all times she has been a wonderful friend. I now teach with her husband, and like Anita, Steve is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had the privilege to meet. If I could have the choice of anyone to teach my children in primary school – Steve and Anita would be up there. Anita also has exceptional taste in books  and I almost always agree with her choices – though I’d add a bit more grit into the mix sometimes 🙂Anita

I absolutely love Anita’s list – mainly because I’ve not read a few of them and have added them to my ‘must-read’ list. ‘The Good Life’ I just ordered…HAD to have that one! If you’ve not yet read ‘Big Little Lies’…GET IT NOW.
