I gave this 4 stars (really liked it) but if it was possible I would have given it 4.5 stars.

Now back to The Silent Corner - Dean Koontz.

Started as 2 stars (it was ok) as it was quite slow but then it got more interesting so I gave it 3 stars (liked it).

Now reading A Trick I Learned From Dead Men - Kitty Aldridge.

I'm finally reading 'Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine'. I'm really, really enjoying it so far (I'm about 3/4 of the way through).

Yay! I'm glad you're enjoying it, I think if you're really really enjoying it at this point you will probably like it all the way through.

I'm so impressed by how much you read Lindsay!

I finished 'Eleanor Oliphant' and loved it. Best book I've read in ages. Now I'm reading 'The Year of Less' by Cait Flanders. I'm not thrilled by it so far, but I'm only a couple of chapters in.

Maybe the book you're reading now isn't living up to the Eleanor Oliphant experience. Hope it gets better or you can find something else interesting to read.

I have plenty of time to read. I usually go somewhere on the bus most days and read then, and do maybe an hour of reading in the evening too.

I finished it when I was out and had my kindle with me but wanted to read a real book so I started reading Brief Horrible Moments - Marko Pandza since it is only one sentence horror stories so I could have something to read when I was out but can finish it quickly and get onto another book.

Now reading The Rosary Girls - Richard Montanari.

I'm still halfway through 'The Year of Less' but it's really boring. I do want to finish it and will keep reading, but I'm now also reading 'Wild' by Cheryl Strayed, which I'm loving so far.

3 stars (liked it). I liked reading it but didn't understand a lot of what was going on. Plus the characters alternated between using their first names and their surnames which made it difficult to remember who was who. I probably would have given it 2.5 stars overall.
