message 18: by Dietrich (new)

Dietrich West-Graham I have been waiting to read Sapphire Flames. I have loved all the books in this series so far. Plus I normally like everything Ilona Andrews writes.

It seems like I flag everyday. It is very tiresome, and actually insulting on this website IMHO.

And yet another one...the last couple haven't been deleted yet either


message 22: by Elyse (new)

Elyse I read Pumpkinheads yesterday! Loved it! Bisexual representation!


message 23: by Lucy (new)

Lucy Not sure if I want to read pumpkinheads


message 24: by Idamus (new)

Idamus I recommend The Beekeeper from Aleppo, but not sure why it’s on this list, I listened to the audio in May.


message 25: by Sandra(Bee) (new)

Sandra(Bee) The Beekeeper of Aleppo has awesome reviews yet will be a very emotional read. Added to my TBR list.

I believe these lists are only based on US publication. UK publisher Zaffre published it in May but US publisher Ballantine published it last week.


message 27: by Ann (new)

Ann Becky posted this three times?/ As if once wasn't/isn't enough. geez


message 28: by Philip (new)

Philip Ann wrote: "Becky posted this three times?/ As if once wasn't/isn't enough. geez"

Yeah and she posted the same thing 2 or 3 times on at least 3 other articles and she says she's from the USA but her page says Nigeria and I'm getting tired of GR doing nothing about this nonsense


message 29: by Ann (new)

Ann Phillip I wish.They are almost always from a foreign country and get away with this kind of thing unfortunately. They should be banned but how...? sorry to others reading this but no matter what we do nothing gets done and its unfair.

They've all been deleted fairly quickly once a complaint rolls in.


message 31: by Ann (new)

Ann I hope so! Thank you Elyse


message 32: by Ann (new)

Ann I have flagged one of Cassandra's three posts


message 33: by kittykat (Jo Tortitude) (last edited Sep 07, 2019 04:04AM) (new)

kittykat (Jo Tortitude) Ann wrote: "I have flagged one of Cassandra's three posts"

... and it has posted the same message 7 more times (mess 37-43) in this thread and a ton more in others since then... all flagged.

I am also sure that whatever they say in the fake 'profile' they have set up for the purposes of pissing people off on this site is as nonsense as the posts they make. I'm sure the IP addresses would prove that Nigeria is indeed NOT the location they come from.


message 34: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Nolan Checked out A better man by Louise Penny from the library last week, looking forward to reading it soon.


message 35: by Didi (new)

Didi Irwin I have read every Inspector Gamache book and haven’t been disappointed yet (nor do I expect to be LOL). Cannot wait for A Better Man and yes, I too am tired of all the crap that is going on with these seriously bothersome posts! No offence intended, but whatever you can do to make this crap disappear is greatly appreciated.
