    thank you for that I thought it possible it wasn’t a novel as on goodreads it says book 3.5. I do have a couple of the books in the series in paperback, so will have to check which ones I have. Shall check out her website for the story, that’s great help!

    I have just read ...Ties The Knot. This was my favourite of the series, so far. I find Becky to be stupidly annoying at times, but she is so loveable and is and always will be a favourite character of mine. Can’t wait to see how the honeymoon goes!
  3. What a great title for a book! Glad you enjoyed it.
  4. Just bought myself The Colour Purple by Alice Walker and The Bridges Of Madison County by Robert James Waller for £1 80.

  6. I am currently reading still The Tenant Of Wildfell Hall I believe I should be finished with it by next week. I am loving the story. I feel now I am back into the reading mood, properly, I can’t wait to dive into the book. It’s a shame when I have to work or do other chores.

  9. How many books have you read this year?

    23 now. If I am still behind on my challenge by next month I’ll be thinking of lowering it.
  10. Your Book Activity - April 2018

    I have read Love Handles by Gretchen Galway, and it became my first 1 star read of the year. I can say it was very fast paced and that helped a lot with me finishing it. I’m not really too sure of what to say of it; the characters were so-so, the story line was so-so and the writing was okay. One thing that put me off was the over the top sex scenes. I am no prude and I think they are great in the right context, but when they are vividly detailed and using certain uncessary words to describe a female’s body part it really puts me off! Especially when it’s supposed to be a light hearted read that you shouldn’t be flustered about reading on a train in case somebody takes a peak over your shoulder. Another thing that annoyed me was the man meets woman and they dislike each other to oh no sorry they love each other. It works... sometimes. Not here. It’s the first book in a series, I don’t think I’ll be continuing with it. Hendrick Groen: The Secret Diary Of... This is about an 84 year old man who lives in a care home in the Netherlands and decides to write a diary. He is the founder and one of the six members of the Old but Not Dead Club in which himself and his friends go on adventures such as cooking classes and golf. This book made me laugh so much and a book hasn’t done that in a long time. I loved all the characters in this book especially Evert, Hendrick’s best friend with his witty sarcastic one liners. As the story is of people later in life and set in a care home, there are some very sad moments and we are taking back to a time in Hendrick’s life which is very heartbreaking. A very delightful read and I shall be looking out for the second book. 4 stars. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell. I actually did finish this book on 1st May. I was disappointed with this, it stated of so well! I loved the email exhanges between Beth and Jennifer. I just got bored with Lincoln’s story. I thought he was great, I have to put that out there. I really warmed to him and thought he was sweet. It was the incessant need to tell us he is cute and big muscled and because If he wasn’t he would really be a creep? I also could not root for the characters that go together in the end. I did enjoy the writing with this one, If I did want the two characters to be together I know for a fact I would have loved the ending, but unfortunately not. I am going to read Landline but if I don’t like that one I think I will have to put myself as the lone person who is not a fan of this author. 2 stars.
  11. The Last Letter From Your Lover by JoJo Moyes

    I have thank you it was frustrating but seems okay at the moment. I think I know what you mean with that. In fact I had it for one book I read the other day. It said I had read it twice. I do not know if you have also noticed that it somehow adds books as read that you haven’t? In other news my to read shelf was becoming increasingly getting larger so I have had a tidy up and deleted over 600 books from it! Not to say I won’t read those books, just not for it to seem so intimidating. It is now just under 1000 books so still a lot.

    I have been having troubles logging onto GoodReads recently. As when I usually sign in it already shows my email and password saved so I just literally have to press “sign in” it did not allow that the other day. However as I hadn’t physically put my password in for so long I forgot what it was. Then proceeded to change it which it allowed me to do successfully until I came to sign in again then for it to say “we do not recognise that combination.” I finally get in and now I am trying again and having the same problems. I have sent an email again to myself for resetting but haven’t received it. It is 447AM and I should be asleep! But I can’t and it’s frustrating me.
  14. It's nice to be here.
