Thanks Ann...

Janet do read One good Turn it is good and I think Ann has read it as well. I really enjoy Kate Atkinson's crime novels.

Have started The Garden Party..

One day I will review Gone Girl but that could be next year by the look of the queue for it.
I have also ordered Billy and Me.. and if I like it might recommend it next time and ref Mersey as it was her recommendation.

Very hard choice this time...

Thanks all.

I had better go and check the reviews for last time now, I have a feeling theyw eren't all in the last time I looked and I don't want it disappearing down the board.


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 9 Jun 2013 13:28

Have seen this, thanks Anne.

Will try to get to the library on Thursday. Will look for the books and request if I need to. (fingers crossed).


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 16 Jun 2013 12:29

None of the books on the shelves at the library. Have requested winner plus two runners up.

Hope that they arrive soon. I am looking forward to reading all three.

Finished The Garden Party Tess ... not saying a word...

now reading The Devil's Music

and have Roisin Meaney's 'One Summer' as well...

I see Billy and Me is at the library for me to pick up as well..

The book called Gone Girl.. is so popular here ... number one thriller etc I was number 809 on the waiting list but am now 707 of 741 waiting.

Should keep me quiet for awhile.. plus I bought a NZ book which should prove interesting but may keep it for my holiday end of August.. trouble is we do busy when we go away and don't get a lot of reading done.



AnninGlos Report 17 Jun 2013 14:46
