  1. Happy reading in 2019, Madeleine! The Vera Stanhope series has been on TV over here, too, but on a channel I don't normally watch, so I've missed it. :/
  2. What's the weather like?

    Helsinki is very snowy, which I'm loving! It's -12 degrees outside at the moment.
  3. The Last Film You Saw - 2019

    Die Hard It was entertaining! So much so that I think I have to watch the sequel, especially since I learned it was directed by a Finnish movie director! I had no idea.
  4. I'm currently reading One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus and I'm completely hooked! I can't remember the last time I was so eager to pick up a book to read more. I've been reading it on my way to work, at lunch, on my way home, and even before bedtime, which is unusual for me!
  5. How many books have you read this year?

    I've read 4 books, and I'm in the middle of 5th and 6th.
  6. Willoyd's Reading 2019

    Congratulations on reading 73 books last year, thus making 2018 the second best year for you so far! I hope you have a very satisfactory year of reading in 2019, as well!
  7. Ian's reading 2019

    This talk makes me want to re-read The Graveyard Book. I liked it when I first read it, but I feel I didn't get the most out of it the first time. Happy reading in 2019, Ian!
  8. Busy reading

    It's a massive novel, but very enjoyable! I personally couldn't put it down, which I found odd at the time because I'm not one for fantasy much... Enjoy! I hope you have a great reading year!
