  1. I am new :D

    Hello and welcome
  2. Quite pleased with my progress.
  3. Harry Potter Reading Statistics

    I love statistics and lists. Glad you are enjoying them, I haven't read them either but really thinking about it.
  4. I didnt see your post before I added mine. I agree so much with this!
  5. I don't ever look at reviews to determine if I am to read a certain book or author. I find a few books I have read which I disliked have been highly rated on goodreads and have constant 5 and 4 star reviews. Reviews are good to see what other people's thoughts are. Like Madeleine said I look at reviews whilst reading the book. I really want to read The Catcher In The Rye just to see why it is so unpopular.

  7. What are you eating just now?

    Fishcakes, new potatoes and peas
  8. The Last Film You Saw - 2019

    Fantastic Beasts The crimes Of Grindalweld 2019. A good film I thought.
  9. I did thank you sorry to hear you didnt though. When you like a series and the last book let's you down it is awful. It has made me want to watch the films again.

    Hello and welcome to the forum
  15. Stephen King

    Currently reading Misery, so good! Its possible this could be my favourite of his that I have read. So far.
  16. Happy 2019 everyone! Hope you all had a great Christmas (if you celebrate) and a great December in general. Great thanks to all who are involved in keeping this forum going. My reading this month, so far this year has been very good. My first read was Bridget Jones Baby by Helen Fielding and I am currently reading Misery by Stephen King which I am thoroughly enjoying. My main goal of the year is to get my physical to be read down. After my partner was given two bags full of books for me from a customer, it's going to be a fun year of reading. I am not worrying about how much I read. If I read 12 books this year I'll be very happy if I read 112 books I'll be very happy. Happy reading all
  17. How many books have you read this year?

    A lot of mine are short stories and even children's books. Reading is reading. They all count
  18. 1. My favourite books of the year so far are in chronological order Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck Letters From Lighthouse Cottage by Ali Mcnamara The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen by Hendrik Groen My Favourite Husband by Pam McCutheon Shopaholic Ties The Knot by Sophie Kinsella The Tenant Of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte Prince Caspian by C S Lewis Mary Poppins by P L Travers War Horse by Michael Morpurgo The Yorkshire Pudding Club by Milly Johnson 2. Favourite sequels I dont tend to read many sequels, but I have read books in the Chronicles of Narnia series and Shopaholic series that I have enjoyed. 3. New Release I dont really keep up with new releases. I think the newest book released is Happily Never After by Emma Robinson, I have on my to read on goodreads. 4. Anticipated release Again I do not tend to look at what books are going to be released. I do enjoy looking at goodreads what is released this week and adding but I won't rush out to buy them just because they are new. 5. Biggest Disappointment Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. To be honest I can't say I am ever disappointed by a book. You either like it or you don't, but I have heard such good things about her books and I do have a couple of others I owe so I am hoping this was a one off. Queen of the Mersey by Maureen Lee. I am a fan of this author and have read many of the books but this one just didn't do it for me. 6. Biggest Suprise I wasn't too suprised of a book I have read this year to be really good or vice versa. 7. Favourite new author I have read a few new to me authors with whom I have loved the books. Albeit only one read which include John Steinbeck, Michael morpurgo, Anne Bronte and Milly Johnson. I will be seeking more novels by these authors. 8. Newest Fictional Crush I dont think I have one... 9. Favourite character There would be too many to name. I loved every character in the Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen. I loved the characters in The Letters from Lighthouse Cottage. 10. Book that made me cry. This would definitely have to be War Horse. I do not cry too often with books. Even if they are about the most heart wrenching subjects known to man kind. But this got me a little. 11. Books that made you happy I would definitely say Shopahlic Ties The Knot because I have loved following Becky's adventures and this had been my favourite of the series so far. I would also say My Favourite Husband because it was hilarious. 12. Favourite book to film adaptation this year. I have not seen any books to films adaptations this year. 13. Favourite review written. I do not write reviews. 14. Most Beautiful Book. I did like the cover of The yorkshire Pudding Club by Milly Johnson. 15. What books to read by the end of the year. I do want to read a couple more classics. I also want to read at least one Katie Fford book. As well as continue with the Cousins War/Tudor Court series by Philippa Gregory.
  19. The Cosy Teashop In The Castle by Caroline Roberts
  20. Oops I Did It Again by Britney
  21. The Last Film You Saw - 2018

    I did. I have seen it a few times. The first time I was quite young and it freaked me out.
