Books from 31st May to 8th June

Book 93 – Martyr by Rory Clements - a decent novel set in Tudor England around the time of the execution of Mary Queen of Scots – starring Shakespeare’s brother! Very similar to CJ Sansom’s Shardlake books, but not quite as thrilling, but still good and recommended.

Book 94 – Random Acts of Heroic Love by Danny Scheinmann - Combining the modern day story of Leo who has just lost his girlfriend in a bus crash, and Mortiz, who is fighting in World War One. Some really interesting bits on the nature of love and friendship.

Book 95 – Out of Shadows by Jason Wallace - oh my goodness. This book..just amazing. I’m not sure if the main story is based in truth at all, but its one of those books which makes you think about what is good and evil, and whether one bad action can save further bad things from happening…set in Zimbabwe just after Robert Mugabe has come into power. Highly recommended!

Book 96 – The Green Mile by Stephen King - this book was not really how I thought it would be, and it was quite repetitive and dragged a bit. I think it was repetitive because the edition I have is a compilation of the serialised parts, but it should have been edited a bit when it was put into book form. There are better Stephen King books.

I’m now planning to read “I’ll go to bed at noon”, which is a book by a Booker Prize nominated author (so may or may not be good!) and I’ve had it on my shelf for a long time so I’m glad to get rid of it!

In other news – I think I might be doing this job search thing wrong somehow, as I now know two people who have got jobs straight away after their interviews! (Well done Rob! :D ) I haven’t even got any interviews yet! But I will keep on trying, I’ve applied for some interesting jobs this week, so hopefully I’ll get something soon. I keep going between *really* wanting to move up north, and really not wanting to...but I need to have a change in my life, and unless I win the lottery I can’t change my life down here, so I need to move. Katie has a lovely house in Huddersfield so hopefully I’ll be able to get one of those!

Friends are still being slightly rubbish…well some more than slightly. But there are still bright spots, despite the people who I most like to talk to being far away, its always nice to text them. Oh and I saw the March Violets the other night and they were brilliant, as normal! So that was fun. And gives me another reason to want to move up north – so many goth nights!! :)

You'll get yourself a nice job - I'd been searching and applying for jobs for quite a few months; then randomly got a phone call late last Friday asking if I could come to an interview on the Monday :-S *cue panicking and rushing to get ready all weekend* Then they seemed to like me. This was my first interview I had got arranged out of all those months of searching and applying.

thats still amazing that you managed to get a job from only one interview though, even if you had been applying for a while! I will just have to keep trying then I suppose...and hope I can have some of the same luck as you, hehe :)

I know how you feel, I haven't had a job interview for going on 3 months now! >.< Hopefully we'll get some luck with it soon :)

Its so frustrating, especially as I know I definitely can do the jobs I'm applying for... just have to keep trying though I suppose! Good luck with your job search too! :)
