Thanks not long up and have been putting the washing on etc before sitting down..

Back in a minute mine is based on what I can get from the library..

I wanted to read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.. I am number 809 in the queue that is the longest queue I have been on so must be a good read or had good reviews here.

Billy and Me has just arrived at the libraries so far only 8 copies have arrived but not out yet and I am number 12.. but they have ordered more...

ah here they are

The Devil's Music by Jane Rusbridge
One Summer - by Roisin Meaney (because I want to read one of hers and I can get it)
