I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
I liked this one very much - it was funny, it had two great main characters, it had a nice christmas-y atmosphere and it showed that people can change.
It was a feel good read for me. And now I want to go to Bath for the christmas market, although we have the original at home in Munich and I am now in one of the greatest places on this planet (Aruba).
Anyway. I like the gull - it had guts. I liked that it had a bunch of characters and that it was so English.
