  1. I completed Jodi Taylor's Hard Time. An enjoyable addition to this St Mary's spin off series. It was fascinating to see threads sewn in earlier books emerge in this one. I love the characters, who are each being developed nicely. The need to immerse myself elsewhere for a while is quite strong at the moment, so I will have to ponder where that might be. Hmmmm.....

  3. March has arrived. What are you reading? I have started Hard Time, by Jodi Taylor. This is her second book in her Time Police series. I am taking it slow, so as not to spook my rather timid reading mojo.

  6. I LOVE American Gods. I haven't seen the tv series, so can't compare, but I really enjoyed where Mr Gaiman went with this book. My reading mojo completely dropped away, so I am re reading a super easy read of Hunting In Bruges by EJ Stevens. A chapter here and there is keeping things ticking over with these supernatural shenanigans in Belgium. It's a spin off of sorts from Stevens Ivy Granger series of books. If you enjoy fast paced battles with evil doers and evil beings, and love an old European city to dash around, this is one to read. Little brain power required. As I have visited Bruges a number of times, I recognised the locations - many of which I will now never go to after dark!

    Raven, I am running out of 'Ois!' with you! We weren't allowed a pud. If I was to visit as an adult I'm sure I could manage one though!

    Hi Lainey. Was the book about the Dupont family? They were big in the US gunpowder business in the 1800's. There is a series of books by author Michael Dodd called the Dupont Family Chronicles starting with A Strange Destiny. Not sure they are completely related though. Good luck finding the book. I know it can be so frustrating when you can remember bits, and you can remember that you enjoyed it, but little else.
  9. Pancake Day

    I remember many (MANY) years ago going to My Old Dutch in London. It was, and still is, a pancake house that served these huge (diameter around 24 inches) sweet or savoury thin pancakes on huge blue and white plates. To me, at around 9 years old, this was not only the height of sophisticated dining, it was a revelation that grown ups used such huge plates!.
  10. David Levithan's trilogy of books, Every Day, Another Day, and Someday are enjoyable YA books. I have also enjoyed Jandy Nelson's books The Sky is Everywhere, and I'll Give You The Sun. I've read a number of John Green's books, and they are rightly commended. The Fault In Our Stars, Looking For Alaska, and Paper Towns being the three of his I have read.
  11. Pancake Day

    In order; If I get the pancake right (thickness etc) Then it becomes a tasty container of the contents. OMG I remember these! I think you're right, Jubilee Pancakes! And finally, OI! I caught the first 'not surprised'. Now this one! @Poppy, when I get around to trying these myself, I will try that.
  12. The Limerick Game

    Oi! Cheeky! One day in the rain I got lost Whilst Raven got his wires crossed I looked for a sign
  13. Oh My! The pressure on me for you to like them! Arghhhhhh! I stand by my love of the series, come what may. *gulp*
  14. Pancake Day

    Although I am married to a lemon & sugar only man, who believes anything else is criminal. I am more than happy to vary my toppings & fillings. I am quite partial to savoury pancakes with mushrooms and cheese. And throw a banana at me, and I am very happy! I came across this recipe today, for the thicker (and sweet) Scottish Pancake / Drop Scone recipe. It looks lovely, so I may have to give this a try. https://www.northlinkferries.co.uk/orkney-blog/drop-scones-recipe/
