I started reading this with one eye closed - tense, worried it would disappoint! When your literary idol returns to a world that influenced you so greatly as a teenager - there's a certain amount of nervousness! By the end of page 1 - both eyes were open and I buckled in for the ride! It's a fast paced thriller, faithful to the world she created 30+ years ago.

Smrloomis I was also hesitating for the same reasons but your review convinced me! 📚📚📚 4h
Amiable Great review! 3h
Aaronlisa I quite liked it myself. I just had a hard time with Daisy and her parts at times. I think that was the only reason why I gave it a so-so rating here on Litsy. And it is certainly fast-paced. 3h

Mitch @Amiable Thank you - its a book you can't say much about without risking spoilers! 2h
Mitch @Smrloomis It cant be a powerful as the first book - because I'm not that person now...but it definitely didn't disappoint! 2h
Mitch @Aaronlisa I wanted to read it slowly - but that proved almost impossible! 2h

The World of Downton Abbey | Jessica Fellowes
post image

Part of my birthday weekend - a trip to see Downton the movie (a bit of escapism!). Our cinema was doing a special afternoon tea Downton style before hand, so we filled up on finger sandwiches, scones with cream & jam and copious amounts of cake before settling into the movie!

Chelsea.Poole Looks lovely! 2d
LeahBergen That looks wonderful! 😍 2d
Mitch @LeahBergen @Chelsea.Poole It was a fun way to see a movie! And the cakes we‘re delicious! Some people had even dressed up Downton Style, with glittery dresses and headbands! Sadly we just had jeans and T shirts on! 2d

Enjoying curling up with this one.. part travelogue, gorgeous recipe ideas and stunning photography. It‘s a love letter to the Irani cafes of Mumbai. Can‘t wait to get stuck into cooking fro this one - I think it‘s going to be our October cook book of the month ( we choose one cookbook and cook through it for a month!)

Well that‘s my Saturday night all sorted!

It seems 76% of us sleep better if we read before bedtime. I‘m assuming the other 24% are reading something so good they keep reading all night! 🤣

Kicking off the birthday weekend with my favourite - Sri Lankan breakfast at our local park cafe, outside in the sun. It was also a good place to reflect on how far I‘ve come with #bfcr3 - walked 43 miles this week, wore a pair of jeans I‘ve not been able to for quite some time (and smiled every moment of wearing them) and have had sugar under control on most days. @Blaire @nelehelen @callielafleur @Chrissyreadit @sudi @MicrobeMom @crazeedi

Really enjoyed this - it's less about the actual murder and more about the interconnecting threads of society that surrounded the event. Whilst Albert Massey was undeniably shot the household's 18 year old Carrie Davies - the book focuses on the influence of the media, the idea of celebratory, powerful men and powerful male driven organisations. It's well written, the courtroom scenes are brisk and it turned out to be a good history lesson!

Mitch @rabbitprincess looks good. Thanks. This is the first book I‘ve read by this author. Interested to read more. 1w

Folios new autumn editions .... niiiiiice!


Oryx Oh my. That is tempting. 2w
Mitch @Oryx I think it‘s almost essential for someone with a litsy handle like yours! 🤣 2w
Oryx @Mitch well I do only have two copies (paperback, signed hardback - my prize possession) and on audible and in Kindle. It's not take enough, is it? I really do need another version. 2w

Ask Again, Yes: A Novel | Mary Beth Keane
post image

This is such a quiet, well told character driven story. Keane deftly tells the story from multiple characters points of view - each of which is incredibly believable. The blue collar catholic community is well drawn, as is the real life of a cop family. It's one of those stories that slowly creeps up on you and you find yourself completely invested in the lives of these two families. #readthis

Cathythoughts Great review! I‘m looking forward to it 2w
Mitch @Cathythoughts I really enjoyed it! Its one of those books where you hang with characters rather than hang on plot 2w

Jumped on a train to the seaside, as it‘s probably the last afternoon of summer for me 😩

Starting this - loved Fever so fingers crossed its as good. 🤞🏼

Hooked_on_books I haven‘t read Fever, but this one‘s really good! 2w
Oryx Heard the author on the radio yesterday - this one sounded interesting. 2w

Mitch @Jenken1998 @MicheleinPhilly @louise @RvnclawWhovian I felt torn between running the hills and buying every book to ‘save‘ it! 🤣 2w
RhiannonDelore Lol. That‘s my kinda store! Needs more support to get the funds to take care of it. 2w
Beatlefan129 It looks like an earthquake happened in there! 2w
julesG My fingers start itching, I want to clean up the mess. That shop definitely beats the bookstore opposite Lord Russell Pub near Russell's Square (can't remember the name). It was packed with stacks to the ceiling and I was afraid to move around. 2w
Eggbeater I want to get in there and organize it and take home the treasures I know must be hidden among the mess. 2w
RachelO Wow! 2w
Dolly ☹️ 2w
Branwen HERE COME THE HEART PALPITATIONS! 😵 That is just TOO much book chaos! 2w
Hooked_on_books I‘ve seen places like this. I don‘t last long in them, either. 2w
Oryx @julesG I really need to tidy and organize that too! I think I know then one in London you mean - skoob books? 2w
Soubhiville I wouldn‘t be able to handle it either. How do they find anything? 2w
Gissy I agree with @Eggbeater 2w
Crazeedi How could you find anything? I mean I love full shelves but this???? 2w
Brithomas17 Whoa! That‘s just a total mess! Wouldn‘t be able to find anything in that! 2w
julesG @Oryx No, skoob books is organised compared to this, but also near Russell's Square (in the New Brunswick mall). The one I was referring to is Judd Books in Marchmont Street https://maps.app.goo.gl/BxhzwdmsrWDT9zBE6 - the stacks were not as tame when I visited. 2w
LeahBergen Holy shite. If I have to clamber over piles, it‘s just too much. 😆😆 2w
Oryx @julesG oh yes, I know that one now. 2w

The shortlist is out!

Dolly Ah, my impulse now is to search for which books were not chosen. I didn‘t read many of these but did read My Sister... and didn‘t think it worthy of a prize. (edited) 2w
Cinfhen Did u read Orchestra???? I know you were grappling with it. 2w
emilyhaldi Ofcourse none of the 3 that I‘ve actually read made the short list! 2w

LeeRHarry There has only been one Booker prize winner that I have loved - some I have tried and am subsequently baffled as to why they won 🤨 (edited) 2w

So yesterday I met an old friend and she gave me a very early birthday present ( it‘s not for 2 weeks) it‘s a gorgeous cushion, refashioned from a tweed jacket. The jacket pocket has been made into a book pocket! Love it ❤️❤️❤️

Not my biggest reading month but what I‘ve read has been quality! Ive been inspired by the research that went into bringing the stories of the Rippers victims to life to enable them to be more than victims. I‘ve been transported to a remote Russian enclave and encouraged to make more photographs. I‘ve chewed over how I feel about desire and male views of what it should look like and I‘ve relaxed with math and space dreams. #augustinbooks

catiewithac How was Disappearing Earth? It's on my TBR list. 2w
Mitch @catiewithac I liked it. It was less a mystery / thriller and more a portrait of a place and the women who live there. ✔️ 2w
Birdsong28 The Five is my best book of 2019!! 📚📖 2w
