  6. Hi all – I am back (again)! I am 5 months late to the reading party of 2017 but I am just glad I have got here at last. After reading Outlander last year, I got a huge book hangover and didn’t manage a to read much more – maybe 4/5 books in as many or more months! Other contributing factors were my starting running and the emergence of a love life!!! But I have finally got my book mojo back so here I am… And here are my lists… (I still have a bit of working out to do but will over the next few days!) 2009: Read 48 books 2010: Read 79 books 2011: Read 74 books 2012: Read 92 books 2013: Read 59 books 2014: Read 45 books 2015: Read 49 books 2016: 2017: Reading Goals ~ To have less than 404 books on my TBR list on 1st January 2018. Unless I am going to begin reading it that minute, make a list of kindle books I want. Don't just download - the only exceptions to this rule is books I want from the Daily Deal. Read some thrillers! Review every book! Read 2017: 1. Happy Mum, Happy Baby by Giovanni Fletcher 2. With All My Heart by Margaret Barnes Campbell 3. Mansfield Park by Jane Austen 4. Longbourne Library by Trudy Wallis 5. Promise House by Sandra K Moore 6. A Nightingale Christmas Carol by Donna Douglas 7. The Sunne In Splendour by Sharon Penman 8. The Nurses of Steeple Street by Donna Douglas 9. Never Stand Alone by Janet Macleod Trotter 10. Catherine of Braganza by Sarah Beth Watkins
  7. April TBR March 1st: 298 Read: 4 Brought: 8 Best books: The Outlander series – Diana Gabaldon TBR April: ??? Hey all! I am so sorry I have not been around that much this month. There has been a very simple reason for this… The Outlander Series! While on the surface it looks as if I have not read that much this month, having read only 4 books, the Outlander books are whoopers and I have done 3! I have read (I believe) 3,000 pages plus this month and have been using every spare moment I have to get through a few more chapters! I can’t remember the last time I got so swept up in a series, but Outlander, Claire, Jaime and Diana Gabaldon have taken me hostage at the moment. I shall return properly to the internet more often when I get to the end of book 8 I expect lol! In addition to reading 4, I have also brought (I believe) 8 books this month (a couple of them being Dragonfly in Amber and Voyager, so I have read those two already!) so I need to sit down and do some maths to figure out where I am with the TBR pile. I have a horrible feeling I am over 305 again somehow (you guys know me and maths lol) so sometime soon I will have to sit down and work my stats out properly again. But still the year is young enough that I can get under 300 again and I thoroughly enjoyed my April reading! I really hope all of you did too! On to May (and more Outlander! I am currently on book 4, Drums of Autumn!)
  8. I am continuing with Mansfield Park today
  9. I read more of Mansfield Park last night - I am really enjoying it!
  10. I am about 80% through now - its getting dark, but still addictive!
  11. It is wonderful! Even though it is a big book, it doesn't feel like it and I am sneaking off every chance I can to read it!
  12. April Read-A-Thon Friday: 38 pages of Out of the Hitler Time and 39 pages of Outlander! Saturday: 28 pages of Out of the Hitler Time, 86 pages of Outlander, 24 from Mansfield Park and just 4 from The Sunne in Splendour! Sunday: 39 pages of Out of the Hitler Time (book finished!), 56 pages of Outlander, 16 from Mansfield Park and 21 from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! Again, I had a really fun read-a-thon! There was as normal a lot of jumping around books, but the main ambition of the weekend was to get to the end of the Out of the Hitler Time trilogy which I started for my first read–a-thon a couple of months back and I achieved that, so that was great! I also continued to get lost in Outlander. I barely realized how many pages were passing as I read the book – it is just so captivating and I feel really lost in the story at the moment, it’s wonderful! In addition to that, I finally got to start Mansfield Park, so I am definitely a happy reader! : ) Total - 351!
  13. I just finished Out of the Hitler Time by Judith Kerr... what a trilogy!
  14. I am going to be reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon today! I started it earlier in the week and have fallen in love with the Scottish Highlands as well as all of the Highlanders
  15. I am feeling much better now, thank you! It was a shame though - it wiped out the four day weekend for me! LOL nope - just a typo!!! Shall go and edit that out You too!
