#Bk5 of the #24in48 #readathon is finished! This small book was a gothic ghost story. Two young doctors in a London Hospital at the end of the 19th Century are conducting unethical experiments with the dying. When their colleague witnesses one of these experiments he‘s haunted for the rest of his life. Years later, he stumbles across what he realises is the young woman he saw at that macabre scene. #ReadingWomensChallenge #BecauseOfTheCover

What an amazing book! Just the thing to liven up my crappy week(throat infection needing IV antibiotics. Hospital. Yay🙄), this gorgeous signed edition It‘s the story of Circe, goddess daughter of Helios the Sun God & Perse daughter of Oceanus. Unloved & unwanted she turns her back on the gods to become a witch. A story that just flows with magic & wonder. 10⭐️ #MountTBR2019 #Bk5 #LitsyAtoZ2019 #LetterC #LittenLoveBingo #LLB19 #aBOTMpick

BookBoggart Got about a 100 pages left. Kinda milking it a bit cause once I start I'll be done. 😅 11mo

Lizpixie @BookBoggart I know how you feel! I just read Song Of Achilles before this, now there‘s no more Madeline books to read. I hope she writes more soon, there‘s so many Greek myths to be retold, I‘d love to hear Paris‘s story or Heracles. Or the story of Artemis & Orion.🦌✨🏹 (edited) 11mo

Got to Chapter 7 in this novel, I‘ve finally realised that reading with a magnifying glass is much worse than forking out over $700 for new glasses.🤓 This is for #MountTBR2019 #MtKilimanjaro #Bk5 #LitsyAtoZ2019 #LetterC & #LitsyLoveBingo #LLB19 #aBOTMpick

MelissaSue81 $700 for new glasses?! Yikes. Look into zenni optical! I got mine for $7! But I have a very basic presicription. 11mo
Linsy Gorgeous cover! 11mo
JaclynW What a lovely cover! 😍 11mo

TheLibrarian I agree with @MelissaSue81 - try Zenni. My eye prescription is pretty bad and it forces me to get the highest index lenses, but they were still only $75, plus $25 for frames. Cheaper than using my insurance. 11mo
BookishMarginalia What a gorgeous edition! 11mo
rather_be_reading gorgeous! 11mo
minkyb I wear progressive lenses and they are ridiculously expensive even using online discount sites. It is quite depressing. 11mo
