Mehso-so

Was ok for a debut YA teen thriller. Writing style a little basic and characterizations were a little sparse. Didn't really have any empathy or sympathy for Delia because of that.

As for the twist that comes quite early in the book, I for one didn't see that coming, but the rest were a bit blah and predictable.

Read in two days whilst sitting in the sun. I will be leaving it at the hotel.

More 2019 reading.

As a gay man I thought that I knew and understood about trans/gender non conforming issues. I didn't.

Read this. It's so much more than choosing to be 'a man' or 'a woman', or matching your outside with your inside.

I admit I was more drawn to the glorious blue coloured bookshop cover than the story itself..however it was a charming little holiday read. And no, The Cotswolds is not really that idyllic

Do love a book about books though!

MrBook I‘ve had my eye on this one. Do you live near where the book is set?! 1mo
MrT I'm in Cardiff, South Wales about an hours drive from the Cotswold, it's classed as an area of natural outstanding beauty. 1mo

2018....read 29 books by 21 new authors.

2019....my challenge is not to buy a single book this year and read my TBR pile which consists of 116 books...starting with The Man I Think I Know by Mike Gayle.

MrT I caved. Bought books airside at the Airport. 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘m impressed you held out as long as you did! Seriously Wow! 2mo

Really enjoying this take on the classic Agatha Christie Murder Mystery.

A bit confusing at first, shaping up to quite fun.

Home from a night shift and eager to start this sequel....think I'll be asleep within two pages though.😴

My Portugal holiday read. Drawn into the Great Library and the world of forbidden books. I certainly didn't think the story would go the way it did but so glad it did.....roll on books 2, 3, 4 and 5.
