The Bedside Table Stack #5

I love having a new stack of books to delve into each month. Most of the books I've picked this month have been inspired by others I have read or heard of and wanted to discover more about the author. Here are some of the titles that will be making their way into book reviews in the near future:

Heartbreak Hotel by Deborah Moggach.* I jumped at the chance to read this book by the author who penned The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. When retired actor Buffy is bequest a run-down Bed and Breakfast in rural Wales he has no idea of what he is getting himself into. Buffy's plan to entice the punters attracts a diverse group of guests, but they may have more in common than first thought.

Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. A few years ago I read Mr Pip by Lloyd Jones, a fantastic read by a wonderful New Zealand author that quite heavily centres around the novel Great Expectations. Ever since I've been wanting to read this famous classic and as I'm also *trying* to expand away from my usual go-to genres, a classic of this caliber will make a nice change.

Thanks For The Memories by Ceclia Ahern. I wasn't entirely smitten with the first book by Ahern that I read last year, but I do really like her writing style. Thanks for The Memories - about two people who are connected through unusual circumstances sounds like a cute and fun read and even the lolly-ish cover art is making me look forward to reading it.

Chart Throb by Ben Elton. Ever since this post where I explored some of Elton's previous works I've been itching to pick up a copy of one of his books. In Chart Throb Elton turns his satirical sense of humour on the world of reality television.

*Gifted in exchange for an honest review.
