  1. Summer Supporter Giveaway

    These were brilliant answers, thanks for getting involved in the thread everyone! Just as it's beginning to turn suspiciously autumnal, we have a summer giveaway winner: Brian.!
  2. Read-a-thon 2020

    I will, thank you I did get to sleep eventually! You know when you just start thinking of a million things when you need to go to sleep? The book helped to distract me from thinking about anything else, but the ending was so tense! I have the next book in that series, The Darker Arts, and I'm leaning towards starting that now. I'm glad you enjoyed most of your reading! I hope today's is as good I read up to the third book in the Chronicles of St Mary's series and I really should go back to it. Especially now I know the ending of the seventh book is so good . I'm glad you're enjoying Moon Over Soho now! It's been quite a while since I read it but I think I remember feeling like it got a lot better further into the book. It had a lot to live up to after the first one didn't it!?
  3. Read-a-thon 2020

    I couldn’t sleep so I finished Loch of the Dead. It was so good but it hasn’t really helped me to feel sleepy! I didn’t make any plans for what I wanted to read this read-a-thon, other than Loch of the Dead, so I’m not sure what to go for next.
  4. Read-a-thon 2020

    Happy reading! I have noticed the tagging issue but I’m not sure what’s stopping it from loading, I can only assume it’s a coding issue, and I’m still waiting to get a price and date from the web developer. Hopefully it’s not too annoying in the mean time but it is on the list to be fixed!
  5. Wow, that's a tongue twister! I'm reading Loch of the Dead by Oscar de Muriel. It's brilliant so far but I haven't had as much reading time as I'd have liked this week. Hoping to finish it over the read-a-thon weekend
  6. Serial Killer Books

    My 14 year old niece also finds serial killers (or anything scary, really) fascinating. I can't think of a non-fiction book off the top of my head but I'll ask her if she knows of any when she gets back from school .
  7. Read-a-thon 2020

    Yes, do it . We've extended the read-a-thon to a Monday before, starting a day earlier isn't really different to that!
  8. Hello from America

    Hi Molly, welcome to the forum!
  9. Summer Supporter Giveaway

    Multiple answers are allowed if you can’t choose just one
  10. Read-a-thon 2020

    Extra reading is never a bad thing though. I agree with moving it to the 11th-13th
  11. Recursion sounds very interesting! I find the concept of false memory fascinating but also very disconcerting! It’s a shame there were so many two-stars in that last lot of books. I would have found disliking the first Viking book particularly disappointing as it’s so hard to find a whole series in a charity shop! Fingers crossed that the next one is better though.

  13. That's absolutely fine too. I love starting a new reading log at the beginning of every year . If it makes you feel better about your reading goal, mine was 50 too and I've only read 16 so far!
  14. That does make sense now that I think about it. It's weird though...
  15. Shakespeare

    I always remember a teacher I had once saying 'we were never meant to read Shakespeare's plays, we were meant to watch them'... which is a good point really. I would vote for Macbeth next, to see how it compares to your memory of it from school!
