  13. Willoyd's Reading 2018

    Happy Reading in 2018 . Ooh, really pleased that I didn't give the Terry Hayes book a go now.
  14. Top 5 (or 10) Wednesday

    I'm the other way round: generally, the books I've enjoyed discussing the most in reading groups etc are ones I've disliked, and the more I've disliked them, the more fun they are to discuss. Thus I've just finished I Am Pilgrim (Terry Hayes), and my review is twice as long as usual! Having said that, I do enjoy discussing books |I've enjoyed, but with somebody who hasn't enjoyed them! It's always good to get a different viewpoint.
  15. Janet's Log - Stardate 2018

    Happy Reading in 2018. Ooh, I love the Provincial Lady books, and the Rosalind Lehman one. What a brilliant idea going to all the Waterstones ! I can see that doing well as a memoir.
  16. Hayley's Reading in 2018

    Happy Reading in 2918, Hayley. Lots of goodies in your TBR ; I especially like the Jim Butcher ones. Enjoy your Discworld reread ; I did one a few years ago and loved it. I read one after another and really immersed myself ( except for the last couple of books, which I still can't bring myself to read. #sniff)
  17. Round Robin Year-long Challenge

    That's what I intended the Round Robin 2018 thread to be about: putting one's challenge lists up and talking about books or anything else that comes up. May seem a bit artificial, but wanted to separate the actual doing of the challenge from introducing it for the first time and setting it up. Is it just @frankie to challenge you now?
  18. Madeleine's Book Log - ongoing

    I really like the look of that one, shall look forward to your review.
  19. Rest in Peace

    Not an author I've read, but I have just read on Twitter that Ursula K. Le Guin has died. She was 88. RIP Edit: Source
  20. Round Robin Year-long Challenge

    And the last 3 challenges... MRTR: Anne of Green gables - LM Montgomery. - A lovely book, Anne is just so endearing. Frankie: The Opposite of fate - Amy Tan - One of my favourite authors, and a book I gave as presents a few years ago. Ben: The Historian - Elisabeth Kustova - I remember this being a fun read.
  21. The last one to post here wins

    I change my mind, I'm not ok with kylie winning.
  22. Round Robin Challenge 2018

    First book of the challenge completed - the longest too (at least in terms of pages): I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes. I can't say that it has been added to my favourites list, rather the opposite as this review amply demonstrates, but I'm delighted to have come round to it at last, and it's good to have completed a book from my TBR list and got under way, so thank you Karen.d.
