  2. Diane's Reading List - 2017

    Oops...here I go again, not finishing one book before I start another, but I had to....you see I needed a thinner book to put in my bag to take in to town with me so I had something to read when I stopped for a coffee...! 'Life After You' by Lucie Brownlee
  3. Tennis

    What a final between Rafa and Roger...amazing stuff.

  6. I've added another 4 Hayley....I like things to be a round number. I pinched it from you, but I might change things though if I find other categories.
  7. Tennis

    Shame Johanna Konta didn't make the final....but when those Williams sisters are playing, hardly anyone else gets a shout. The men's final tomorrow should be a good one though Federer v Nadal ..... wonder if it will be a 5 setter. Hayley I have been getting up at stupid o'clock to watch games I've wanted to see.
  8. Chaliepud's 2017 Reading Log

    Glad you enjoyed the Chris Cleave Hayley. I've read 'The Other Hand' and 'Gold' (I have Gold if you wanted to borrow). I too enjoyed his writing. This one sounds good too.

  12. Diane's Reading List - 2017

    '6 Ranier Drive' by Debbie Macomber I wanted an easy read so this fitted the bill. One of the Cedar Cove series, #6. I think I have read another of this series so I remembered some of the characters. Good to have a who is who at the beginning of the book as I kept forgetting the relationships to the characters. It was an OK read based on who set fire to 'The Lighthouse' restaurant and interlinked with other storylines. Enjoyable enough but given there are a lot more in the series I won't go out of my way to read all the rest, even if there are a few storylines that will continue. If I come across another by accident, then so be it. I didn't dislike the book as I do enjoy Debbie Macomber reads. 3/5 (I can add this to the 'number' book in my reading challenge)

    Having ordered it Claire I had no idea of the font size before hand....have to wear my most recent prescription specs for this one...
  14. The Last Film You Saw - 2017

    Took myself to see La La Land yesterday, was ok...escapism, but I was expecting it to be more of a modern old fashioned type musical but it wasn't really. Don't really know why it is up for so many nominations!
  15. Intermediate books

    Have you tried Jenny Colgan. Romantic comedy, reads very easy to read. https://www.fantasticfiction.com/c/jenny-colgan/

    Oops...what is this...3 weeks in to 2017 and I've bought a book...well have seen it so many times on facebook book pages that I had to finally get a copy of 'The Nightingale' by Kristin Hannah...and Hayley has always recommended. Nearly finished '6 Rainier Drive' Debbie Macomber.
  17. Diane's Reading List - 2017

    I do wear specs for reading and close work....but might need a magnifying glass....I've haven't seen such small writing in a book for a long time..
  18. The Last Film You Saw - 2017

    A friend and I went to see 'Lion' on Monday at our wee local cinema....wow what a lovely, if emotional, film.....based on a true story....recommend.
