Secret Scribbled Notebooks
Secret Scribbled Notebooks. Joanne Horniman
I really really loved it. It's one of those rare novels that is the perfect restless summer read, and also a book that when finished makes you want to go do something wonderful for someone, or paint the house a different colour and enrol in a Finnish language course. And it also just makes you a bit happy about life.
Pretty snippets of 17 year old Kate O'Farrell's life shown through her Wild Typewritten Pages and primary coloured journals, it is Anais Nin in fig trees, the first summer with a neice, and first love in a variety of forms.
