Nikki | 2416 comments Yeah I took a look at the reviews of that and thought it might be hit or miss ah well you can do it Stella, how much have you read so far?


message 45: by Stella (new)

Stella | 258 comments Only a few chapters in so I am hoping that it will improve :)


message 46: by Nikki (new)

Nikki | 2416 comments Fingers crossed for you, have you tried using the reading sprint thread within the group? I find that sometimes it helps me plough through the draggy bits if I take part in the sprint :)


message 47: by Nikki (new)

Nikki | 2416 comments I'm just trying to decide what book to read next lol


message 48: by Stella (new)

Stella | 258 comments Wow! You got through your first one so fast! I was going to start Laurinda as soon as I got home but I was swamped with homework and had to put it off for a bit.


message 49: by Nikki (new)

Nikki | 2416 comments Lol usually when I read I can get a book done quite quick, if I'm in the reading zone that's it. Thing is I've got 3 kids so only get to read once they go to bed lol :(


message 50: by Stella (new)

Stella | 258 comments haha must be difficult to find time. I sometimes try to shove books on my mum and convince her to read them but she starts it and then never finishes it.
