  1. Read-a-thon 2018

    I finished reading the graphic novel of Anya’s Ghost by Vera Brosgol, and really enjoyed it. Stared reading Circe by Madeleine Miller, and this one is really good too. And have been listening to The Curse of the Pharaohs by Elizabeth Peters (# 2 Amelia Peabody series). And this one is another joy to listen too.
  2. Started Circe by Madeleine Miller. It’s wonderful, so far.

    Reading Quiet Girl in a Noise World, An Introvert's Story by Debbie Tung. A graphic novel/comic, and it's lovely to read; very accurate for me as an Introvert

  5. Little Pixie`s Bookshelf 2018

    I've been looking at Stuart Palmer Hildegarde series, and I love his style of writing. Plus, I am getting free, Audible KU for at least the first two of the Hildegarde series.
  6. Little Pixie`s Bookshelf 2018

    Yes, I looked the Amazon books for Frances Crane, but the new paperback were quite expensive. I’m trying not to buy any books, just for a while, so I’m will be on Kindle Unlimited for 3 months for £1.99 . I’m having lots of fun with the British Library Crime Classics. But I’ve got second hand copy of The Turquoise Shop (Pat and Jean Abbott Mystery #1) on my wish list.

  13. Marie H Reading List 2018

    Reading at the mo The Promised Neverland, Vol. 1: Grace Field House by Kaiu Shirai (author) and Posuka Demizu (illustration) Kindle version A great story, and the manga illustrations are beautiful Company in the Evening by Ursula Orange (Kindle Edition) Book blurb “Of all the unhappiness my divorce has brought upon me, loneliness has never been in the least a part. Lack of company in the evening is to me an absolute luxury.” Thus does Vicky, a young divorcée in London with a small daughter to support, reassure herself. But as the plucky courage of the early days of World War II gives way to the fatigue and deprivations of its middle, company in the evening is just what she gets. To the chagrin of her housekeeper, Vicky agrees to take in a pregnant, widowed sister-in-law. Lovely book, with gentle humour - the book equivalent to a warm mug of Horlicks
  14. Finished reading Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. A great read, so 4.5 out of 5 score.
  15. 55% read of Salt to the Sea. Gripping stuff!
