The Horse Dancer

I'm one of those rare girls who aren't into ponies. Never been. Took a few riding lessons as an adult, fell off at the first jump, rode some more until my instructor got bored. In principle, I love the idea of riding on the beach, but in practice sitting on the beach with a good book and a cocktail is simply more me.

And so "The Horse Dancer" by JoJo Moyes held no immediate appeal. Full credit to the author for making me stick with the book and eventually fall in love with the characters, including the horse.

Top 5 Places To ...

Have you ever done it in an aeroplane? In a train? On a boat?

(This reminds me of a Dr Seuss book, Green Eggs And Ham, the part when it goes: "Would you, could you, on a boat?")

Here are my 5 memorable locations and/or wishful thinking places (I will admit nothing online):

  • aeroplane
  • in the rain
  • scuba diving
  • in a busy parking lot
  • under a card table
Fantasy? Fiction? If you read Sweet Somethings you might find out.

Top 5 Love Songs of the 1980s

  1. Who wants to live forever - Queen
  2. I want to know what love is - Foreigner (I stole this title for a short story in Sweet Somethings)
  3. Careless Whisper - George Michael
  4. Hello - Lion Richie
  5. I just called to say I love you - Stevie Wonder
Phew! It was difficult to do just 5. Where's Paul and Elton? Jennifer, Cindy, Bonnie, Tina? What about Chess?

This may be a recurring blog. LOL.
