Nanny to the Billionaire's Son (Mills & Boon Largeprint Romance)

Nanny to the Billionaire's Son - Barbara McMahon this is a real Cindrella story, I like it very much

The Essential Listening To Music (International Brief Edition)

The Essential Listening to Music - Craig Wright This is an easy Beginner's guide to classical music, it has very clear definitions, analysis to famous works, history, biography of composers arranged chronologically, it also includes the forms of music according to age: for example the sonata and the concerto grosso in the Baroque, the symphony and the string quartet in the classical, in addition to providing examples from famous works.

Big Girl: A Novel

Big Girl - Danielle Steel the first 150 pages were good, but after that I got bored and did not continue reading, the problem is the appearance of a homosexual character, not likely of Steel. I don't accept homosexuality at all, so I did not continue reading.
I like her novel 'Daddy' more, even 'Coming out' is good too

A Foolish Dream (Harlequin Presents, No 1461)

A Foolish Dream - Emma Richmond this a good novel, I like the humour

The Notebook & The Wedding Box Set: Featuring the Unabridged Audio Recordings of The Notebook and The Wedding

The Notebook/The Wedding - Nicholas Sparks, Tom Wopat, Barry Bostwick the style of the writer is excellent, though the story is a bit sad, but I like to read his novels because he is respectable and doesn't say offensive things

Nocturnes: Five Stories of Music and Nightfall

Nocturnes: Five Stories of Music and Nightfall - Kazuo Ishiguro Mr Ishiguro's writing is the best I have ever come across, he is simply the best, he won Booker's prize for 'the remains of the day' and he deserves the Nobel and the Pulitzer too, I hope he wins it. The book, as the title suggests, is made up of five short stories. All the heros are musicians, they are nostalgic about the past. Also the others characters talk about their lost love and ended marriages. There some humour mixed with sadness. As usual, there is pcshycological depth in the stories. For those who loved "Remains of the Day", you will not be disappointed. In my opinion, starting from Ishiguro's second part of his literary life, he is more mature, talking about universal topics and not limited to Japan like in the first books. He is really wonderful and sublime.
