Outlander | Diana Gabaldon

On this tvtime app I have, someone actually commented that reading the outlander books were "cheating" lmao I find this very amusing. I feel like watching the show is cheating??

Mina‘s debut has all the elements that make her work compelling: female protagonists, Glasgow setting, tough issues examined sensitively but honestly, and the odd splash of violence.

Great read with a wonderful sense of place, the Highlands, and the people who live there. Also possessed of feeling of a creeping doom as the reality of child sexual abuse is slowly revealed, although not in any gruesome detail. Set in the 1950‘s, many of the primary characters work on a small town newspaper. Good twisty plot that speculates several candidates before the real monster is revealed. A good read. I recommend this author.

Oh how I enjoyed this one. From prologue to ending. The thing that makes this such a wonderful read are the characters! The writing is sweet and the author brought Scotland to life. I‘ve actually visited Scotland several times when I lived in England and this made me homesick for the brogue and the food! #travelthroughbooks #scotland #mayreading

April feels like it was a really good reading month even though I apparently only finished three books. But they were all great! I muddled up the bookspin numbers & haven't started my #doublespin yet, but I will get to it. I didn't fill in my blank spaces for birthday present books because one of them was Little Wing which was already on my list because I wanted an excuse to buy it, and I haven't started my other gift book yet.

Anyone like Disney's film Brave? This book is due for release early May. Definitely one I'm interested in as me and kids love Brave. @TheWolfbehindTheEyes @Cupcake12 @Birdsong28 @BethM @CymbaX13 #disney #princess #heroin #scotland #brave #newbook #spinoff

Loved it! Not as overtly a romance as her earlier books, though there is still one in there of course. I‘ve always enjoyed Freya‘s books and she‘s just getting better as she (and me) get older. Great sense of place in this one which ends up on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides. Definitely requires tissues too.

nocto Pretty certain this was my #doublespin for April too though I can‘t find the numbers at the moment! 3w

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Mums and Mayhem! It was a delightful cozy mystery filled with a bit of paranormal fun. The only negative for me was Isla, Fiona's sister, she was really annoying and bratty in my opinion. Overall though, this story entertained.
