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.

Two steps forward by Graeme Simsion arrived in the post today. Really looking forward to it!

3 stars (liked it).

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.

Also:

The Comforters - Muriel Spark.

Had to stop reading The Comforters because a library reservation arrived.

Now reading The Rosary Girls - Richard Montanari.

2 stars (it was ok).

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.

one_step_closer 28-05-2018 11:26 AM

I might add Wild to my to read list.

3 stars (liked it) would have given it 3.5 stars if possible.

Now back to reading The Comforters - Muriel Spark.

Also reading The Little Pocket Book of Mindfulness - Anna Black.

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.

The Ice Twins - S. K. Tremayne.

i'm also going to get "After Anna" after i'm nearly done
I don't know how to describe the book i'm reading, but it's worth checking out

Are you enjoying it? I LOVED it. It was one of those books I was sad to finish because even if I read it again it wouldn't be the same because I'd know the ending! I had certain issues with it but I could forgive them because it was such a good read.

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.

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

Serendipity. 07-06-2018 09:13 PM

Oh I hope you start enjoying it more Lindsay!

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

I rated this 3 stars (liked it).

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...
