  19. Diane's Reading List 2016

    Hoorah...thanks to my sis and brother-in-law I did get two books for Christmas after all. 'Between Sister' by Cathy Kelly (from my sister obviously) 'The Penguin Lessons' by Tom Michell * * * * * * * * * * * * * I guess this means that 2016 reading post is officially closed now Here is hoping everyone had an enjoyable reading year in 2016 and may your 2017 bring you lots of new books and authors to try out
  20. My Reading List 2016 Well, here we are another year and another pile of books to read. Yet again I didn't reach my meagre 'to read' total of 30 .... but have done better with 24, so nearly did it. I shall endeavour yet again to reach it this year, famous last words I hear you say. I'm hoping I can add a few more new authors along the reading trail too as I did last year. You are all very good at recommendations. Must try to read more from the books already on my shelf though, than buying....but we all know how hard that is especially when you have a wishlist for birthdays, Mother's Day and Christmas..! List from 2015 List from 2014 List from 2013 Click on link for 2013 for years prior to 2013 Reading at the moment 'The Little Paris Bookshop' by Nina George Read January 'Murder at the Vicarage-A Christmas Mystery' by Jill McGown 'Big Little Lies' by Liane Moriarty February 'The Sweetness of Forgiving' by Kristin Harmel (started in January) 'The Ice Twins' by by S.K. Tremayne 'Sophie's Bakery for the Broken Hearted by Lolly Winston (started) March 'Sophie's Bakery for the Broken Hearted' by Lolly Winston (mostly read in February) 'The Silent Sister' by Diane Chamberlain April 'Eloise' by Judy Finnigan 'If My Father Loved Me' by Rosie Thomas May 'Sing you Home' by Jodi Picoult June 'The House We Grew Up In' by Lisa Jewell (started in May) 'Life after Life' by Kate Atkinson (abandoned, wasn't enjoying it) 'Pandora's Box' by Giselle Green July 'Peaches for Monsieur Le Cure' by Joanne Harris August 'I Let You Go' by Clare Mackintosh 'Nights of Rain and Stars' by Maeve Binchy (started in July) September 'We Are All Made of Stars' by Rowan Coleman October 'The Trysting Tree' by Linda Gillard 'A Cornish Affair' by Liz Fenwick November 'Secret Lives' by Diane Chamberlain (started) December 'Secret Lives' by Diane Chamberlain (finished) 'The Christmas Train' by David Baldacci
  21. Diane's Reading List 2016

    'The Christmas Train' by David Baldacci Second time I have read this one.....remembered bits about it, but I think I will be passing this one on now. Only reason I kept it was it had Christmas in the title really. Not overly Christmassy and some of characters likeable others a bit annoying. Travellers on a train heading to their destinations for Christmas, supposedly different tales of why they are on the train, but not truly all is as it seems as to why they are on the train. As a previous reviewer has said (Janet has read this one)...ending is a bit twee. 3/5
  22. Diane's Reading List 2016
