I haven't read a proper novel in soooo long. For some reason my motivation to do anything (blogging and reading) hit an all time low but I've found myself slowly picking up my love again and delving into poetry has sparked a little love to read again. So I have picked three books I want to read soon which have been in my TBR pile for a while.

Off The Page - Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer
Off the page is a stand alone novel as well as a sequel to 'Between the lines' (a book i've not read) and is a book about a woman called Delilah who wishes for a price and out pops Oliver from a book and comes into the real world, (just think of the Disney Movie called Enchanted) however for Oliver to exist in this real world he needs to take another persons place. Enter Edgar who agrees to play Olivers role in the book, however everything gets turned upside down and and the line between reality and what is possible becomes blurred.

The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold
The lovely bones is a movie that I adored and when I found this book in the charity shop I decided to pick it up, apparently according to Goodreads I have actually read this book but I can't remember so it'll be nice to reread it. The lovely bones is a book about a girl called Susie Salmon who was murdered when she was 14 by a man from the neighbourhood. Now in heaven she cane have whatever she wants apart from the one thing which is to be back on Earth with her family. Susie watches from heaven as her family are torn apart, her friends grow up and fall in love. 

The Help - Kathryn Stockett
I've heard amazing things about this book and It's something I have wanted to read for a while. The Help is a book which tells the story of Aibileen who is a black maid in 1962 Mississippi who is raising her seventeenth white child. She takes her orders but has found its leaving a bitterness she can no longer bite back. Her friend Minny has never held her tongue or held a job for very long but now she's working for a newcomer who has secrets. White socialite Skeeter has returned from college and would find solace in Constantine the beloved maid but she has disappeared. Together these seemingly different women join to work on a project that could forever alter their destinies and the life of a small town.
