  1. What's the weather like?

    Same over here! I started wearing my spring coat instead of my winter coat this week, and today it was too warm for my spring coat, too! I only had a t-shirt and a thin cardigan on! And it was warm/hot!
  2. It's nice to be here.

    Hello and welcome to the forum!

    I'm not trying to be cryptic at all Just watch it when you have the time! I know what you mean: I was all for watching GG from start to finish, but when I got to the end of the 'actual' seasons, I stopped and went to other stuff. Now I've started watching The Office (US) right from the start, which I did not expect to happen! I should go and try to watch the GGs now... but I'm far more keen on watching The Office

    Oh Maybe you do need a new bookcase Or maybe we all need another dining room table!! It's mostly the case of the books not being in their place. I used to have all my books in such carefully dedicated spots back when I lived in Joensuu. And even in Espoo! But since then, the books have somehow multiplied and now, I do have enough bookshelves and bookcases, but I just can't make the certain shelf space accommodate the certain genres! And I somehow don't want to go and disturb the books because I feel they are all dusty on top. Oh dear!!! First world problems...
  5. Your Book Activity - April 2018

    I finished Helter Skelter earlier this evening. Finally!
  6. How many books have you read this year?

    I have now read 4 books this year, which is the lowest number in I don't know how many years/decades
  7. What Are You Watching Now? - 2018

    This is so funny... I've watched Jeeves & Wooster when I was younger, and so I knew/know both of the actors. And yet, the latest I've seen of Laurie is in House, and thus I'd kind of come to remember him to be an American And I was kind of like, how odd for Laurie to be in something Clunes was in, as Laurie is an American... I must have my brain tested! I do wonder if I've seen the episodes Clunes was in. I can't think that I have, but maybe I have! Imagine if the two doctors agreed! If they got each other from the get-go! Edit: Hugh Laurie has such a convincing American accent in my humble opinion. It's so convincing! What an overall amazing talent man he is! Talent man! Man of talent! And a fair sight to the eyes, too!
  8. This made me think of Confess by Colleen Hoover, but I don't think it was that erotic.... Oh yes and this was most likely not based in London, either. Sorry! I hope someone else can help you!!

    Don't get me wrong: I did enjoy the episodes!! But of course they are not as dear and darling as the 'real' ones. I would definitely recommend you watch them as I do think you'd enjoy them I did! Maybe that is the case! Surely you'd want to know how certain people got along, and if they got along at all, in the end And other stuff, besides other stuff!

    We do love our books, don't we! I miss my books They are there, so I shouldn't miss them, but I feel like I'm not there for them! I've neglected them! My darling books! I've had my mojo going AWOL in the past, but I feel like it's never been AWOL this long. I want it back! I want back my focus! I want to touch and feel and read and devour my books. I feel like they are not in order any more I had them in pretty good order in my last apartment, but since then I've bought loads more and now, even though I have the shelf space, I'm not fully happy with the way they are categorized and shelved. Hmph!

    It is not wrong at all Although I must ask. It sounded like you keep your books on your dining room table? As far as I know, surely you must have more books than can fit on any old dining room table, no matter how sturdy it is!!
  12. Very very late to say this to you, poppyshake, but I wish you the most amazing reading year in 2018! I see you've read 34 books already?!? Bloody hell! Guns ablaze! I saw on Goodreads that you'd already read Left of the Bang And you'd given it quite a good rating!! I'm very pleased if you liked it! I've finally finished the Manson book I was reading for months and months. I'll be starting the Eleanor book this weekend! I honestly cannot wait! The Manson book was non-fiction and it took me ages, and the book before that was a re-read, I think, so I'm ever so much looking forward to reading some new fiction!!

    Well who could remember every single thing they'd recently bought... Not me! Mind you, I re-watched the GG (for the umpteenth time) in the winter and when I started watching the first 'episode' of the four new ones, I couldn't somehow carry on. It just felt funny and awkward. Sigh! I mean I've watched the episodes, but I haven't been able to watch them again. I just wasn't inspired.
  14. Sophie Kinsella

    Getting back to old posts, but I recently saw the new Kinsella novel, Surprise Me, was available at the library and I was going to post about it but apparently Lau_Lou was waaaayyyy ahead of me In any case, the book is out now, I mean at least over here in Finland the book is available. I've reserved a copy from the library Lau_Lou, did you thoroughly enjoy the Confessions? Have you read any of the subsequent novels?
