      Moving Day Coming Soon   01/11/2021

      As many of you know, we've been looking at changing hosts for a while now. This will allow us to access the tech support we need for the site and should speed up the forum as well as ironing out a few issues we've been having recently.    We are now signed up to the new hosting plan and can go ahead with the move as soon as the new hosts have everything they need (which is currently being sorted!). The forum should not be offline for more than a day during the switch and hopefully it won't even take that long. I don't have an exact time or day for the move yet but this is an early warning to expect some downtime soon.   When we are offline, no matter how briefly, you can follow the forum twitter page (@bookclubforum) for updates.

  1. A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, book 1) by George R. R. Martin
  2. I hope you enjoy A Tale of Two Cities . I have Shantaram on my TBR, I hope you like it . Well done! I hope you like Hollow City . I'm currently re-reading Elantris by Brandon Sanderson, I'm liking it a lot. I'm not that far into it yet (page 130 out of 622).
  3. I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella
  4. Sophie Kinsella

    It's not on Dutch Netflix yet. Hopefully it will be at some point, because then at least I have the choice of watching it or not. Thanks, and same! That's why it bothered me so much. The series had not had that happen before, so I assumed this book would be similar. Agreed.
  5. It's nice you read a lot in 2020 . Fingers crossed that vaccinations etc will help. Happy reading in 2021! I hope you find an interesting book (or two) soon that will hold your attention .
  6. Sophie Kinsella

    Oh wow I didn't know Can You Keep A Secret was out as a film now! I read the book years ago and liked it. Might have to look it up on Netflix and watch the trailer! Then decide if I want to see it or not. I hope you like Shopaholic to the Stars. I liked it but I didn't love it because of the way it ended, at the time I read it, book 8 (Shopaholic to the Rescue) wasn't out yet, and they are meant to go together. And I don't like cliffhangers so . I'm sure I'd enjoy it more upon re-read when I can read book 8 straight after if I want to. I just have Christmas Shopaholic to read, but I wasn't in the mood for it in December (though tbh I was reading a SK book, My (Not So) Perfect Life, with a few other people and I didn't feel like reading 2 in the same month I guess). I liked My (Not So) Perfect Life, I didn't love it like I did with the early Shopaholic books, but I liked it .

    I did, thank you ! In fact I liked it so much I struggled to read something else for a while . So I ordered the author's most popular / best reviewed book (The Donor was a novella). I hope you enjoyed whichever book you ended up reading . After The Donor I struggled for a while, then decided to try rereading a short Stilton book (Geronimo Stilton 3: De Piraten van de zilveren Kattenklauw). Later in the day I read Himouto! Umaru-chan volume 8 by Sakakuhead. I then re-read Cakes in Space by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre, and I re-read Amelia Fang and the Barbaric Ball by Laura Ellen Anderson (Amelia Fang book 1). I hope to read some more today, as it's the extra day .
  8. Happy reading in 2021 for you too, Chrissy !
  9. Willoyd's Reading 2021

    I loved seeing your reading statistics and reading your review of 2020, preview of 2021! Happy reading in 2021 . I hope you'll be able to read some of those big reads requiring a lot of time and concentration.
  10. Read-a-thons 2021

    Same. Thanks Hayley . I indeed read nothing on Friday, but yesterday (Saturday) I read 22 pages in The Donor by Claire Macintosh. It's a novella and has just over 100 pages, I hope to at least finish that today and hopefully read something more. That makes sense, it was indeed a strange year. I hope you enjoy your reading . Happy New Year to you too, Karen! Happy New Year to you too Marie ! I hope you have fun reading! Happy New Year to you Hayley! Haha, I'm glad it was an excellent read ! I hope you enjoy The Other World, It Whispers .
  11. Thank you!! I hope you enjoy some wonderful books this year too . Thanks Hayley . Happy reading to you too, Madeleine !
  12. Happy reading in 2021 !
  13. Happy New Year (2021!)

    Happy New Year, everyone!! May 2021 be a great year.
