Hope your book continues to be good. :D

 

I`m halfway through the Firebird book, A Thousand Pieces of you. I thought it was quite clunky at first, a bit scattered; then, around, page 80-100 or so, I really got into it. :) 

 

I`ll catch up with my reviews soon. :)

 

So far it is :)! I just wish to learn a bit more about the character Gabe, but maybe that will happen later in the book :). I love the way the main character's sensory overload is described. You don't often read about that in fictional books.

 

That's nice to hear :)!

 

I look forward to reading them :).

Started Set In Stone by Robert Goddard, another book from the English Counties challenge list. :)

 

Just finished this one.  Blimey, it starts out as one thing, moves in an unexpected direction, and then changes completely halfway through!  Can't say I actually enjoyed it, but it certainly compelled me to keep reading as I had to know what happened next.  And, that leaves me with three books left on the challenge. :)

Currently reading H.G.Wells' 'The Time Machine' and 'H is for Hawk' by Helen Macdonald :)

Need to download an audiobook to keep me company on walks but not sure which one to get!?!

This morning I finished Without a Doubt by Marcia Clark. Really interesting insight into the OJ Simpson trial. It also looks like I will finish (with luck) The Machine That Changed The World today, which has dragged on a bit for months now. I don't think reading two books at a time suits me, as I end up favouring one over the other and forgetting what the other one was about. :wacko:

 

This morning I bought Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng as it's only £0.99 on Kindle. Not sure when I will read it though, as I have a few other books I want to get through first. :)

Finished Holding.  Loved it, 4/5.

 

Now on to Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, which I'm excited to read; it's had a lot of positive reviews.

 

On a separate note, I've already planned ahead for my Christmas reading.  It's still May.  I may or may not be a little demented. :lol:

Finished 'A Week in Paris' by Rachel Hore

Starting 'The Nightingale' by Kristin Hannah & 'Welcome to Rosie Hopkins' Sweet Shop of Dreams' by Jenny Colgan

 

'The Nightingale' has been recommended so many times by @chaliepud and others I feel bad that I haven't gotten to this read before now, but I only got a copy of it not that long ago.
