Tania's Book Circus

I adore reading and have very wide and varied taste.  Some of my favorite genre's include historical fiction, memoirs, fantasy and non-fiction.  Some of my best-loved titles are Sandcastle girls, Poisonwood bible, Daughter of the forest, Knife of never letting go, The snow child, The glass castle and Wolf Hall.  I love Juliet Marillier, Jodi Picoult, Philippa Gregory, Deon Myer and Bill Bryson.  I read approximately 120 books a year, and I try to keep my reviews short and to the point, so you can spend less time reading them and more time reading the books you'll enjoy.  Happy reading!

Eggs to Lay, Chickens to Hatch: A Memoir - Chris van Wyk

Eggs to Lay, Chickens to Hatch: A Memoir - Chris van Wyk

This was such a fun read. The authors first book,Shirley, Goodness & Mercy: A Childhood Memoir, felt like it was written by an adult looking back on his life as a coloured boy growing up in apartheid South Africa. One could definitely pick up on the anger and despair.Eggs to Lay, Chickens to Hatch: A Memoir felt like it was written through the rose-tinted eyes of a child. And such a clever, charming child! I had a giggle on every page. I wish we had more South African memoirs like this one.
