  1. I have been enjoying a re read of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackosn series. Fast paced, action packed Greek myth goodness! Just the kind of reading I was looking for following my Passage Trilogy read. My only slight problem is that I am anticipating a "Whatever shall I read now?" moment once I am done. There are worse problems to have.
  2. Andrea's reading in 2019

    The book is gorgeous. I hope you enjoy it.
  3. Chrissy's Reading 2019

    The three books are so different from each other, but I felt they worked as a trio. I really look forward to reading your thoughts on the second book.
  4. Chrissy's Reading 2019

    3), 4), 5), 6) & 7) ~ Percy Jackson & The Olympians series I meandered around my book shelves, and meandered through my collections on my kindle (we are talking many, many books!) and could I find something to read? My book hangover (Thank you for the new and highly appropriate term @Athena ) from The Passage trilogy sent my reading decision making off kilter. I had tried a book or two, but nothing was grabbing me, so I went for a fun fave. Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series is a fast and fun read. PERFECT! I am ploughing my way through them, and enjoying every minute!
  5. The Last Film You Saw - 2019

    On the re read, I can see that!
  6. Books That Make You Hungry

    Harry Potter makes me crave old fashioned food - treacle tart or lemon sherbert sweets for example. And butterbeer? That sounds delicious, and I have seen recipes for making your own. I used to find the James Patterson Alex Cross series also made me hungry at times, especially when any food made by Nana Mama (Alex Cross' Grandmother) was mentioned. I recall Twilight made me want to have mushroom ravioli / tortellini, but I cannot remember whether that was from the book or film.
  7. The Last Film You Saw - 2019

    Did you enjoy it Raven? Can't quite tell.
  8. Reading mojo, reading mojo. Wherefore art thou, reading mojo? You read a long ol' trilogy and have a blast. You pick up a book (kindle) written by two authors you love, and what happens? I cannot get into Good Omens, so have put that to one side. Now I am just looking at all the many many books on my kindle and trying to find even a gentle, short re read of something just to keep my mojo embers glowing. *Big sigh*
  9. What's the weather like?

    Sums up the weather around the South East nicely!
  10. I haven't yet muggle not. It is still a tad pricey for the kindle on the UK site. When the price shuffles down, it will be bought.
  11. An interesting interview. Thank you Hayley. I would definitely enjoy further interviews.
  12. Andrea's reading in 2019

    Congratulations Andrea! What a lovely booky way to kick the year off!
  13. What's the weather like?

    A beautiful day here today - bright, with a blue sky. Chilly though, a definite windchill factor.
  14. What's the weather like?

    Chilly and drizzly rain. Grey skies, generally quite bleurgh.
  15. What's for Dinner?

    Just had a shop bought microwavable spaghetti carbonara. It was better then I had anticipated! I shall return to proper cooking and eating tomorrow!
