I have that on my Kindle but haven't read it yet. Please let me know what you think of it when you finish.

I'm 104 pages in and persevering. I'm finding it a bit repetitive in places so far but I'm interested in seeing what is going to happen. Plus since you LOVED it, I will definitely keep going.





I put it down on paper and then the ghost does not ache so much.

Oh and I've read this, rated it 3 stars (liked it). I can't actually remember anything about it though!

Oh I hope you start enjoying it more Lindsay!

I really didn't like After Anna, I found it really irritating!

I very rarely give things 4 stars (really liked it) and even rarer 5 stars (loved it).

Also I am interested to know what your certain issues were...

Tbh, I didn't really have issues when I read that one, but when I read 'The Fire Child' which is the author's next novel under that name, it was also about a woman putting a kid at risk etc because of mental health problems (that I didn't necessarily find terribly realistic) and it just pissed me off!

at the local charity shop, there are paperbacks for 49p and hardbacks for 99p to be bought - so i got one of each
i never saw the girl on the train movie, so maybe just reading the book is right for me:)

Hannah, that is quite annoying. I put The fire Child on my to read list, is it worth a go anyway?

Charity shops are great for book bargains, although I've seen some charge 2.50 for paperbacks which is a good deal but I'd prefer them to be 1 or less!

I have The Girl On The Train on my book case and I've never seen the film either. If you read it let me know if you recommend it.

Now reading:

Fragile Lives: A Heart Surgeon's Stories of Life and Death on the Operating Table - Stephen Westaby.

Lindsay, I'd say it's probably worth a read. I didn't enjoy it as much as The Ice Twins, but I did still enjoy reading it for the most part.

I really liked The Girl On The Train. The film is terrible. I really wouldn't bother watching it!

Could not get into Scaredy Cat, only chose it because I have to chose a crime book to read for the reading group I go to and I have no idea what is crime and what is a thriller and Scaredy Cat definitely had crime in it!

Found a book that says 'the crime novel of the year' on the front cover so I'm giving it a shot:

Blacklands - Belinda Bauer.

I gave this 2 stars (it was ok) I wasn't that impressed.

Now reading Magical Thinking - Augusten Burroughs.

This is on my bookcase, let me know what you think of it if you finish it.

Harry Potter is 100% cultured. I sometimes think I'd like to read the books again but then I think that there are so many books I haven't read that I should be reading them instead. Hope you're enjoying them.

I'm finding it a bit slow and not engaging so far but I'm going to continue with it.

I am currently reading Iron Coffins, an autobiographical book from one of the captains of the German U-boats in WWII.

It's really very good, amazing what they had to go through once the tide of the war turned.
