So, how often does this book fair happen??  :D That was extremely good value, you definitely shouldn't feel guilty :P  

 

I've read The Resurrectionist and found it a bit strange to be honest but I do think it's worth trying, it's quite unique. Without giving away any spoilers, there's a very interesting twist at the end!

I like strange, and dark, so sounds like a possible hit!  :D

 

The Epsom Book Fair is once a year so that's it for a while...I did google other book fairs but nothing nearby which I am trying to be grateful for! :)

 

March WILL be a no book buying month! Honestly!! .........  :P

I think I've read 3 out of your above list...Gold, Midwives, and Drowning Ruth. Good stash there... :D 

I liked 'Gold' and 'Midwives' (think I read this one twice, once my accident but good second time too). I can't remember much about 'Drowning Ruth', so obviously one that didn't make an impact.

Thanks ladies, I need to spend less time online and more time reading! :D
