If you haven't, you should!

I received it as a present this past Christmas, and since I read it I cannot get it out of my head. I have even read a few other books but this is still in the front of my mind. It is the best book I have ever read!
I usually go for a predictable romance (which I do enjoy!!),the easy to read books where you read it, enjoy it and then forget it. I felt unsure if i'd even enjoy reading it but as soon as I read the first page I knew we'd get along fine.
The Help was easy to read (I read before bed and really wanted to carry on each night but my tired eyes couldn't take anymore), but at the same time it was thought provoking. It is so inspirational and makes you realise how hard people worked in those days for such little pay and how lucky we are to live the lifestyles we lead. I laughed and cried during this book and was truly saddened at the end as I didn't want it to finish.
I have since lent to my mum and she loves it just as much as I do!
Whilst reading it I didn't realise a film had been made that is based on the book, so I have that to look forward to! So exciting! I just hope it is as good as the novel itself.
Since reading it I have started looking at other books that aren't romance and it feels good to broaden what I read.
If you have read it, did you love it? I'd love to know your thoughts.
P.s - I've given the blog a mini make-over and changed things around a bit! I love the look of it : ) A recipe page has been added so all my favourite recipes are in one place..perfect!
