  3. How many books have you read this year?

    I am now over the 100 mark
  4. Pets - 2017

    That is so sad to hear Madeleine, so sorry for your loss.
  5. What's the weather like?

    Very cold here had to put the heating on Thursday evening as it was so cold, mind you we had just got caught in a down pour as we went out for a walk which did not help. I don't think we are going to get an indian summer here this year just as well going away soon.
  6. First line of current book - 2017

    Olivia has had the worst year of her life. Summer in Santorini - Holly Greene
  7. currently reading a box set of 4 books by Holy Greene Spring in Skiathos which I have just finished Summer in Santorini - Autumn in Crete and Winter in Rhodes. I think this will set me up nicely before I go away in two weeks time. Not going to Greece but it is setting me up for some sunshine.
  8. First line of current book - 2017

    A bouquet of succulent flavours was drifting up the stairs from the kitchen, whetting Jane's appetite and urging her to get out of bed. The Forgotten Summer Carol Drinkwater
  9. Madeleine's Book Log

    Hi Madeleine I agree with what you are saying here I too felt they could have delved a bit deeper into the characters with lots of things left unsaid. But as I said I did enjoy it and would certainly read it again at some point.
  10. Moved onto the next one in the series from Jodi Taylor Lies, Damned Lies and History and The Forgotten Summer by Carol Drinkwater.
  11. What's the weather like?

    I know we have not got the horrendous weather that some parts of the world have got but come on this is supposed to be the back end of the summer and I have just put the heating on as it has not stopped raining and it is very cold. I really feel for those who are having to leave their homes and move elsewhere because of the hurricanes. Certainly would not like to be there and living through it. My heart goes out to all those who are having to live through it.
  12. What's the weather like?

    I agree with you Nollaig the plants definitely needed the rain. Its me that does not like it. Today is very black but at least it is dry and fairly warm.
  13. I have now finished the Muse by Jessie Burton, I so enjoyed this one will read again at some point
  14. What's Up in September 2017?

    Had such a busy weekend went out shopping and have to say spent rather more that I would have liked but hey I don't go out that often. We are on holiday in four weeks time and ended up buying some more clothes for holidays. We will be the best dressed on the beach me thinks. That is said tongue in cheek.
  15. What's the weather like?

    It was yuk here this morning rain, rain and more rain. Its only September for goodness sake,
