An interesting premise though jury is still out for me on this title overall.... Good to challenge your own assumptions sometimes though!
Somehow managed to have about 5 books part done... None of them suiting 10 minute snatches of reading in my crazy busy January 🙄😛
So this has been perfect for the last couple of days... I love Dawn French.... This is the closest you can get to a natter with her over a cuppa and a nice gentle read. Despite the Sunday Mail quote on the cover it's not at all self help-y if that's not your thing ❤️❤️
Sorry I've hardly been on and hardly read a thing in last two weeks... Back soon xx
Not a fan of these tie in covers... But only £4 for a new copy.... Do UK Littens know when it's on BBC One... Hardly ever watch telly but would give this a look if it hasn't started already (or iPlayer I suppose lol)
Thank you so much @TrishB I love them..... Going to have a King family reading fest again in the new year so these beauties will be getting all the love.... Already scoffed the choc.... Only lover of the dark stuff in the house yay 😋😋
Thankyou dear friend for your thoughtfulness and generosity.... Much love to all of you ❤️❤️🎅🎄💕💕💕
It was nearly a so so as I think it dragged a bit in the middle but the beginning and the end sections were so, well, powerful it has to be a Pick with some qualifications.
Difficult to read in places - Alderman doesn't sugar coat the brutality and casual violence but never voyeuristic; it is the casualness of the violence and abuse of power, the glee in hurting others that is difficult to bear but so well done.

Afternoon plans #currentlyreading and these ginger thin biccies from IKEA are yummy (also super cute heart shaped)
Sorry I've been Awol but I've been really sick for nearly 10 days.... Bleughhhhh. One of the joys of my second business.... 50+ plus folk in a queue all coughing sickness yuk germs and phlegm particles in your face 😷😱😰
Normal posting soon I hope.... Also hoping to get outside to Post Office tomorrow @TrishB 😉😘
Thank you so much for your Christmas card and gifts @TrishB.... Oooh excited for Crimbles 😁🎄😁🎁🎄
Yours should reach you very soon... Plus that package I've been meaning to send you for ages lol #hopeless 😘😘😘
Prep our tax returns yawn
Work at 7am tomorrow, then visits from a plumber and an electrician more yawn, help my son finish his project about Trench warfare in WW1
IKEA are doing these tins of ginger thin Christmas shaped cookies yum yum
Shout out to all the new Littens consider yourselves tagged 🙋🙋
Fun test! In Litsy terms I think I'm a pretty slow reader and I'm fine with that. Turns out that I'm average according to this test......wonder what number you'd get @TrishB 😉
A day late again for #winterwonderland but The Wintersmith makes an appearance as a man made of snow.... So many snowman decorations picked up by my youngest boy... They are all over the house #frostythesnowman ⛄❄️⛄
Christmas plans inspired by a post a few days ago but can't remember who, sorry..... Picked up this lovely bookish 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle.... Must be 35 years since I did a proper puzzle..... Just need to work out how/where with 3 cats in the house to paw at the pieces lol
Picked these up on Kindle as, you know, don't want to risk having nothing to read....Slightly ashamed to admit that with a Masters in English Lit I've yet to read these classics.....ah well there's still time before I die ha ha 😰😱🙃
#winterkills #winterwonderland Confession time...I own two copies of this... The others in paperback, the audible books and the first season on DVD..... I have watched the first half hour then my zombie phobia kicked in..... Horrible thing to say but I can't bring myself to invest in a series that might never be concluded 🙊🙊
1. I watched Gremlins for the first time in 20 years this week and it had lost its magic (except for the score) 😭😭
2. Either or both if I feel extra stinky 😰
3. Jean Mackie (my gran's name)
4. Work, house reno, chores, hopefully some electrical work done on stove, paperwork, Strictly on telly, reading..... SLEEP!!!
5. Will do
Really enjoying this book...Dinnertime read! Cooking a chicken became a full on roast dinner tonight yum
Awww @TrishB what a lovely surprise thankyou 😘😘 I very nearly bought the autocorrect book on kindle a few days ago went with another funny instead 😁👍..... The little package in the pic is something I've been meaning to take to the PO for you for weeks..... There's a postcard inside says something like I hope you had a good birthday yesterday (or something like that.... Memory fails me lol). Will post v soon xxx
Finishing up a few reads with the Vizzie keeping my legs warm.
I enjoyed this one.... Probably particularly because my introduction to Holmes and Watson was through TV and film versions over the years. It is clear Horowitz loves the cannon and he does a good job. I expect some purists who adore the Conan Doyle works might have some issues as it is clearly a modern writer and novel format.
