A bit of bleak read but quite profound. Situations across the world could really happen anywhere and that's a scary thought

Ending the year on 23 reads. Wasn't sure about this book, it dragged and then suddenly turned into a past paced winner. Here's to 2024, as we say in Scotland, lang may yer lum reek!

I loved the story, quite different. For a short book it took me ages to read. I think I've reached an age where I need bigger text.

Any excuse to buy a book. Asda didn't have what I want. It's hard to get out without a purchase. No brainer 🤷‍♀️

Also going to start this. Quite liking this two book approach to reading. Also liking my new found love of autobiographies.

CuriousG Are you doing the "easy" book/"hard" book approach to two book reading? I find that one works well for me. Either that or one physical book and one audiobook. This particular book is kind of fun on audio, although he randomly speaks very loudly sometimes. Lol 3mo
kellock I'm doing one fiction, one autobiography and one on kindle, my eyes get tired so switching to a kindle helps 3mo

It's been a while since I read the first one but the story came back quickly. Felt like nit a had a slightly anti climatic ending but still enjoyed it.

Shrines of Gaiety | Kate Atkinson

Mehso-so

I can't believe I've given an Atkinson a so-so. The writing, as always, was tremendous, but it took me a long time to get into it, and I'm not really sure I liked how it ended.

I feel mildy like I should get more reads in before the end of the year so started this while waiting jn the car. Very unlike me to have more than one book on the go.

How dare Richard Osman make me cry (although woman reading it on the lounger next to me didn't seem to cry, maybe I'm emotionally charged). So not a good holiday look. I really do love this series.
