I didn't think I was going to have a book for the train prompt for #letstravelaugust but as I walked past the little lending library at work this book caught my eye.

Crossed Wires | Rosy Thornton
post image

Finding a book for the prompt of United kingdom was never going to be an issue given my love of historical fiction. The problem was always going to be which one to choose. In the end I picked this book because it us partially set in Sheffield which is where I lived in the late 90s for four years

The Tattooist of Auschwitz | Heather Morris (Screenwriter)

I interrupt my baking to bring you my #letstravelaugust with a very non baking book

Earlier this week Paullina Simons was in town for an event with Heather Morris so it seems fitting to post their books so closely together even though I didn't go to the event. I don't recall reading many books set in Poland that aren't about WWII.

Back in the day I was a massive fan of Paullina Simons especially of these two books! The last couple of books I read were underwhelming but these will always have a place in my heart #letstravelaugust @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

This is the last book I read that was partially set in a bookstore. In this case it was a store which specialised in rare editions of books. And the connection to the Lake District and other parts of the English countryside

Once upon a time I used to have unbreakable rules when it came to books. One of those was about always reading series in order. Looks like all the rules are being broken in the interests of just managing to read anything. #romance #unusualbehaviour

Yesterday we visited two of the houses that Sara Donati isited while she was researching for the books

The Dry | Jane Harper
post image

Eric Bana is going to be involved in adapting The Dry as a movie and star as Aaron Falk. Based on the description I would never have cast him as Falk but it is exciting to see a big name adaptation

#booktoscreen

CarolynM I'm with you, he wouldn't be my choice either. I'm so glad you said it because all I've seen is people saying how good he'll be.🤔 9mo
margreads @CarolynM i think it will end up being good. It's just he's a bit older than the Aaron Falk I read and doesn't look like the description at all. I was thinking more like a younger David Wenham 9mo
CarolynM Yes, David Wenham would have been perfect about 15 years ago. I was thinking Dan Spielman or Christopher Morris 9mo

Starting my next audiobook today. Bit strange to hear the narrator doing an accent when the previous narrator didn't. Makes sense that she does but gives a completely different vibe after the last book

Here I was thinking I still had another minutes of story left even though it felt finished!! Turns out it's 37 minutes of author talk

What an excellent book this was. You could feel the heat and dust, the isolation and the effect that has on people

Enjoy the narrator but did find it a bit odd at first as this is the same narrator as for the Aaron Falk series even though this book is not part of the series.
