Not in the database so putting with another book in the series

This was a good read, with plenty of intrigue and twists. Spent a lot of the book trying to puzzle out what was going on and I actually identified the wrong killer. Not read the earlier ones in the series but still read well, however now I want to go back and read the others. Quite enjoy this authors books.

Book 3 for #JoyousJanuary Book 14 for #JumpStart2022

Finished listening to The Eleventh Commandment by Jeffrey Archer. As always with Jeffrey Archer this was a good political thriller and a good story. Also worked well as an audiobook.

#Long #BeginsWith

I love Robert Goddard books, and this is one of his best. He is such a master storyteller and always great twists. This book also takes in events in Ireland in the early parts of the Second World War. Strongly recommended and have included my review below.

Crazeedi Haven't read this one, I'll have to see if it's one I have! 2d
Andrew65 @Crazeedi Definitely a great read, think I might even have read it twice. 2d

This was an enjoyable read, but I think I enjoyed the first one more. An interesting Murder mystery, with some good twists and characters, I did guess the killer, but not quite how that person committed the murder. Wish they would stop talking about alcoholism, played up too much in the books. We get the message and the demons that one character is fighting. Despite this I look forward to the next one.

Harlech Beach Killings | Simon McCleave

Finally getting to start The Harlech Beach Killings, the second book in the DI Ruth Hunter series set in Wales.

EadieB Hope you enjoy it but the author needs to get over the characters' drinking problem. 3d
Andrew65 @EadieB Yes 10% in and hits you in the face! Said Ruth is just about to turn 50, I didn‘t have her down as this age. @tove 3d
EadieB @Andrew65 I was surprised at that too! 3d

Andrew65 @EadieB Glad it wasn‘t just me. 3d
Andrew65 @Tove_Reads @EadieB What are your thoughts on the way Ruth was ostracised and treated after the events of Book 1, I didn‘t think she had done much wrong. Seems strange. 3d
EadieB @Andrew65 To me it seemed a bit political. I think the men seemed a bit jealous of her as when she first arrived she was thrown immediately into an investigation and it was a way to put her in her place and make her prove herself all over again. 3d
Andrew65 @EadieB Let‘s try and keep our male powerbase, and out barriers in the way of promotion. Seems out and out sexism and bullying. 3d
EadieB @Andrew65 I agree! But women are not taken seriously many times and have to prove themselves over and over again! 3d
Tove_Reads Can you almost smell the cigarettes and smell the old booze? 2d
eanderson I need to get to this one really soon 2d
Andrew65 @EadieB This is what is wrong, it shouldn‘t still be like this. 2d
EadieB @Andrew65 I think there needs to be more education on gender bias in the workplace and more people need to stand up against it. 2d
Andrew65 @EadieB Yes Equity and Diversity a major part of our school improvement plan and on the local strategy group driving this area. 2d
EadieB @Andrew65 I guess it will take more time to overcome the old habits in this area. 2d
Andrew65 @EadieB Especially where it is institutional sexism. Most of the people who visited school for my job have been male, despite most primary teachers being female. This has shocked me. 2d
Andrew65 @eanderson Hope you enjoy it when you get there. 2d
Tove_Reads She has a grownup daughter so 50 sounds about right to me. I really like it, because I‘m tired of everyone being fantastic, rich, on the top of their career between 25-35. 2d

Starting a political thriller by Jeffrey Archer. A long time since I‘ve read one of his standalone political thrillers.

Evil Never Dies | T. R. Ragan
post image

Okay the last book of the series. I have put it down as a pick but mainly for the series. Yes it had a good ending, but I felt a bit let down by this book. Didn‘t wow me in the way others in the series have.

However don‘t let this dissuade you from reading the series as I really enjoyed the series. #LizzyGardnerSeriesRead #TRRagan

EadieB I felt like it was a wrap-up of the series and not really a wow book either. 3d
Andrew65 @EadieB I‘d agree. 3d
Elizabeth2 I‘m loving Almost Dead. Shame this one didn‘t quite live up to the rest, but at least you felt like it wrapped things up, which is really important if an author is ending a series. 3d
See All 8 Comments
Andrew65 @Elizabeth2 Tou might enjoy it more than I did. There is some good tension in the book. I just felt it changed Lizzie‘s character. 3d
Elizabeth2 @Andrew65 I can see what you mean, after finishing Almost Dead. I wonder though, after how much trauma Lizzy has endured, especially this last book, if Ragan doesn‘t see this as a natural progression in her personality. She‘s lost so much, she‘s tired of the bad guys winning, she doesn‘t care anymore about being one of the “good guys.” Or sees that her old methods don‘t work as well, because people keep getting hurt, so she‘s trying another way. 2d
Andrew65 @Elizabeth2 Yes you can see how this might come to pass, although I felt disappointed in her choices. 2d
Elizabeth2 @Andrew65 I totally get that. I might bump this one up, and not wait until February to read it after this conversation! I‘m anxious to see where the group goes. I read another series, years ago, with a group of vigilante women and it was very entertaining. But it had a bit of a lighter feeling than this series and the women started out as vigilantes, so there was no inconsistency with the characters‘ personalities. 2d
Andrew65 @Elizabeth2 I had to bump it up as would only have access to the book up to 18th Jan. 2d

When is a #door not a door?

All us Name of the Wind fans are waiting, it seems forever, for the third book in the trilogy to be published, called The Doors of Stone. Will it ever arrive?


DrexEdit Doors of Stone was the first book I added to my tbr on Goodreads when I joined in 2008. I'm not dogging an authors process. It takes the time it takes to write a really good book. But this one has been hanging out there a long time! 😳 5d

Andrew65 @DrexEdit @BookHoarder32 @Kimberlone I came to this series quite late after the first two books were published but even so it still feels like I have been waiting for ever. Quite unbelievable and frustrating. 5d
julesG @BookHoarder32 Yes. I saw it on Twitter? Or was it Patreon? Rothfuss wanted to read when donations for ??? reached a certain amount. 5d
Kimberlone @Andrew65 Same here, when I finally read them I couldn‘t believe how many years ago the 2nd book was released. I‘m more surprised that Rothfuss hasn‘t been able to finish this series than George RR Martin, considering Martin has at least been busy being involved with the GOT tv show for the past decade. 5d

Almost Dead | T. R. Ragan
post image

Like all books in this series this was a very enjoyable read with some clever writing and unique plots. The strength in these books are the great central group of characters. This one took forward Jared‘s story from the cliff hanging end to the previous book. However whilst it was another very good reading I felt just a little bit let down by the ending and particularly the turn the book has taken. However on to the last book in the series.

EadieB Great review! I felt let down too at the end of the book so I downloaded the next book on audible and it's not as serious as the ending sounded. 1w

EadieB @Andrew65 That's exciting! 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB Exciting but quite surreal, interviews on 25th / 26th Jan. 1w
EadieB @Andrew65 So is your last day at Easter or will it be earlier if you hire someone? 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB My last day will officially be 18th April, but last day with children and staff in school will be Friday 1st April. Notice period quite long in teaching in U.K. if Deputy need to resign by end of February. If Head / Principal already in another school need to resign by end of January. It is a large school with a good rate of pay so could attract a head teacher from another school. 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB When the school last under went inspection it was graded Outstanding so this will put some people off the job. 1w
EadieB @Andrew65 So whoever takes the job may need time to give their notice. I'm not surprise your school was rated Outstanding as you put a lot of time and energy in making it an Outstanding place! Congratulations! At least you will be leaving on a positive note! 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB Definitely been my life for the last 15 years and a term. Don‘t think it had really sunk in yet that I am leaving. Still feel everything as intensely as ever. Thanks 💕 (edited) 1w
EadieB @Andrew65 Definitely smacks you in the face and wakes you up to realize this is for real when you are hiring someone to take your place! 1w
Crazeedi @Andrew65 reading through the above posts, I'm really proud of you Andrew. Congrats on the years you dedicated to your school. I'll bet they're going to miss you 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB It does, but interesting,y not upset me at all, so shows it is the right decision. 1w
Andrew65 @Crazeedi Thanks 💕💕💕 They will definitely miss me,, already been plenty of tears after 15 years, but I will also miss them enormously. It has been my life for more than 15 years. 1w
tpixie @Andrew65 good luck on your next adventure! 7d
Andrew65 @tpixie Thanks 😊 6d

Love this book, which is the first book in the little known Chris Bronson Series. If you like code style thrillers and religious conspiracies I would encourage you to look at this book and series. Up to today there weren‘t even any posts for this book. A lot of years since I read it and pre Litsy days.

This is my #WeeklyForecast. It‘s a Mystery and Suspense Week, and two of the books I am already part way through.

4 of the 5 are also Buddy Read books.

Cinfhen I like your theme reading 😉How‘s school, Andrew?? Are you back online??? 1w
Andrew65 @Cinfhen No rates double the highest they‘ve ever been but government (foolishly in my opinion) determined schools will stay open. No cases in children / staff yet in school but a number of both still absent following cases during the holidays. 1w
Cinfhen Surprising on both accounts, being open but no new cases as of yet. Stay safe 💗 1w
Andrew65 @Cinfhen Our whole government approach is shocking and surprising. I‘m still trying to revive to fully from my COvID in September. Can‘t say I agree. Clear they don‘t intend shutting schools. Thanks 💕 (edited) 1w

2nd book finished for #ReadingAfrica2022 The books by Gaile Parkin certainly give you a feel for the country they are based in, this time Eswatini (formerly Swaziland). A delightful story told by Benedict, a young child who lives with Angel Tungazara, her husband and the other children. This follows in from the brilliant Baking Cakes in Kigali that takes place in Rwanda. Although told by a boy clear evidence of how tough everyday life is.

Librarybelle Hooray!! 1w
Andrew65 7th book finished in January and 2022 #JumpStart2022 @Clwojick @Lizpixie 1w

The Poisonwood Bible | Barbara Kingsolver
post image

Finished my first Chunkster of 2022 and the first book for #ReadingAfrica2022.

This is an excellent book and a big book on so many levels, telling the story of the life of a missionary family who go to the Belgian Congo. This covers three decades of their life, and encompasses all the tumultuous events that happen to them over this period.

#AuthorAMonth #DemocraticRepublicOfCongo #BarbaraKingsolver

Book 6 of 2022

I am starting a new Saturday feature, #WeekendReading.

For a lot of us we get the chance to read more at weekends so each Saturday let‘s share what we are reading that weekend.

I am listening to The PoisonWood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver (#AuthoraMonth) and When Hoopoes Go To Heaven by Gaile Parkin. Both of which over countries for #ReadingAfrica 2022

What are you reading? Let‘s Share!

Andrew65 @Bookworm04 Great 😍 1w
MaGoose Reading The Additional Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Hall. And trying to decide what else to read this weekend - can't decide, too many good choices! 1w
Andrew65 @MaGoose I hate trying to choose books which is why sometimes I produce lists. 1w
Andrew65 @Tove_Reads That‘s my commute read for Monday, Almost Dead. 1w
Bookwormjillk A nostalgic read for me- when I was in high school researching for my science fair project at my town‘s library I came across a long shelf under a forgotten window labeled “mystery”. I checked this book out a lifelong love of reading began 1w
Velvetfur This is a fab idea Andrew! I'm concentrating on 'Awakening The Buddha Within' which I want to finish from last year (!) and recently started the audiobook 'The Quaker' so will probably listen a bit more of that over weekend. Which countries are your two Africa books for? 1w
Andrew65 @Bookwormjillk I‘ve only read A, sounds like I need to get on the other 24. 1w
EadieB I‘m finishing The Harlech Killings then hope to start Almost Dead and i‘ve got The Hundredth Man on audio but can‘t really get into that one. Been listening off and on for the past week and can‘t seem to figure out what‘s going on. May need to start over and read along with physical book. I feel lost! 1w
Bookwormjillk The Poisonwood Bible is a good one for #ReadingAfrica and #AuthorAMonth. I may have to re-read it this month. 1w
DGRachel I have a schedule printed so I can read everything I want to before library and book club deadlines, but I‘m already three days behind. 🤣🤣 I‘m hoping to finish The Dead of Winter by Nicola Upson, Bad Luck Bridesmaid by Alison Rose Greenberg, and The Guest List by Lucy Foley this weekend. 1w
Andrew65 @Velvetfur Is that the tagged book at the end of this post? If so I read it last year I believe. The PoisonWood Bible - Democratic Republic of Congo, Hoopoes - Swaziland (Eswatini now). Your bokks sound interesting. 1w
Andrew65 @Bookwormjillk Kills two birds with one stone and a good read, 62% in, but quite a Chunkster at 640 Pages. 1w
EadieB @Andrew65 I read the Poisonwood Bible around 2010 and enjoyed it but haven‘t read any of her other books. I‘ve seen where others have said that her other books don‘t measure up to her first one. 1w
Andrew65 @DGRachel Some good books you‘re in the middle of. (edited) 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB Hard to follow the success of a week renowned first book. 1w

Andrew65 @EadieB Forgot to post that one. Hoping to get to The Harlech Killings tomorrow. Some books just do not work with audiobooks for some reason. Others are great. Almost Dead will be my commute read on Monday. 1w

EadieB @KellyK @Andrew65 Grafton passed away in 2017. I was just reading about her on Wiki. Quite interesting: While going through a "bitter divorce and custody battle that lasted six long years", Grafton imagined ways to kill or maim her ex-husband. Her fantasies were so vivid that she decided to write them down. She told her daughter a ghost would haunt anyone who tried to finish her series. As far as she was concerned, the alphabet ended with “Y.” (edited) 1w

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Great idea! I will be reading for the second week of #sundaybuddyread The Other Side of Midnight and Brazen: Rebel Ladies Who Rocked the World. If there's time I also have Death on the Nile. I don't usually get much audiobook listening in on the weekends but I have Cleopatra: A Life and The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck going, too. I was iffy on reading Kingsolver this month but seeing the comments here, I might try The Poisonwood Bible. 1w
Andrew65 @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Just be aware it‘s a big book. 1w

Finished the last book of the Willoughby Close Series, having finished all 5 books in a little over a week. What a fabulous series of books. Loved learning about all the residents and their relationships and changing lives. A sad element to this last book but fitting to the series. Will now feel bereaved as I leave all the residents, but need to search out the Return to Willoughby Close Series.

All 5 available free on Audible if a member.

A massive #ThankYou to @TheBookHippie for the wonderful gift of Shortbread, preserves and English Tea. That‘s my treats sorted out for tomorrow. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

So kind of you and much needed in what has been a tough week due to big stomach and intensities issues. Possible a big IBS / GERD outbreak following COvID. Told this can be a thing by some on Twitter, but causing a lot of discomfort and pain, not to mention anxiety which then make it worse! 👇

Andrew65 Apologies for the delay as we tend to put any deliveries in quArantine for three days due to COvID., possibly an over reaction but a bad habit to get out of. 1w
