Im half way through The Mill River Recluse by Darcie Chan, which is one of the books voted for on Ann's Greaders. I do not want to spoil it but I have to say I am really
enjoying it :-D

I have been lucky so far and not found any that have really been rubbish, some have maybe been a bit light but readable on holiday, some have been good. reading The Citadel at the moment by Kate Moss.

If a book is 'rubbish', I just delete it from my Kindle. Bearing in mind that I'd read the back of a cereal packet if nothing else is available, that's saying something! :-D

Currently I have 3 folders - Read, Werewolves, Witches n Vampires (which have also been read) and Paid for. There's only a couple in there at the moment - I scour the free list on a weekly basis. Many of the books offered for nothing are the first of a series, the hope being that you will want to purchase subsequent ones.

The most recent one finished (downloaded when free!) was "The Enemy We Know (Suspense with a Dash of Humor) " by Donna White Glaser

Recovering Alcoholic, Psychotherapist Letty Whittaker has been attacked by a client........... and is being stalked. The story focusses on her battle to stay on the wagon, and to discover who her stalker is. With 2 murders and several suspects, the 'who dunit' was quite a revelation.

I am now reading Watch Over Me - Daniela Sacerdoti

On a special offer on Kindle at the moment for 30p !!

Eilidh Lawson’s life has hit crisis point. Years of failed fertility treatments, a cheating husband and an oppressive family have pushed her to the limits. Desperate for relief, she seeks solace in the only place she’s ever felt at home – a small village in the Scottish Highlands. There, Eilidh slowly begins to mend her broken heart but soon learns she is not the only one in the village struggling to recover from a painful past. Jamie McAnena, Eilidh’s childhood friend, is trying to raise his daughter Maisie alone. After Maisie’s mother left to pursue a career in London and Jamie’s own mother, Elizabeth, passed away, he has resigned himself to being a family of two. But sometimes there is more to a story than meets the eye. Despite their reluctance, curious circumstances keep bringing Jamie and Eilidh together. For even when it seems all is lost, help can come from the most surprising places. But sometimes there is more to a story than meets the eye.

Just finished a couple of books:

One Summer: America 1927 by Bill Bryson. This is an interesting factual book about American events in 1927. There's a lot about the growth of aviation and how brave (and very foolhardy) the early aviators were, about gangsters, politics and sport, particularly baseball. I found it interesting reading about characters like Calvin Coolidge, president at the time, who comes over as an idiot, and Babe Ruth whom I had heard of but knew nothing about.

The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes. This won the Man Booker prize in 2011. Not sure what to make of it. It's narrated by the elderly Tony and relates to events in his youth. Although it is quite short and easy to read, it is quite philosophical and seems to be about history and memory and how we view our past. I couldn't really warm to any of the characters. One girl keeps saying to Tony "You just don't get it do you?" I don't think I got it either!

Am part way through Philomena which I am enjoying even though it is heart-rending.

Just finished Expo 58 by Jonathan Coe sent by the Genes Bookclub.
If you can get it for less than the hardback cover price of £16.99, its well worth a read.

Well done Mau - make sure you browse the Top 100 free books listed to the right of the Amazon page. The default tab is the Top 100 books, but once you've selected 'See All' at the bottom of the list, you can choose the Free books tab. :-D


GoldenGirl1 Report 19 Jan 2014 17:43

Good for you Mau, enjoy the first of many. :-D <3


Mauatthecoast Report 19 Jan 2014 17:11

Have downloaded my first book :-D......'Lacuna' by Barbara Kingsolver. As recommended by family.

Started reading it in bed last night. :-D

Just finished 'A Symphony of Echoes' by Jodi Taylor

If someone hadn't read the first book - Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St. Mary's Series) - the lack of knowledge about previous events might make it confusing.

The historians of St Mary's observe Jack the Ripper... a little too closely for their liking..(Re)Discover the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, witness the assassination of Nebuchadnezzar, rescue 17 Dodos and transport them to the future, match-make Mary Queen of Scots with Boswell....all this while trying to defeat the 'bady' team of time travellers.
