Nice list to choose from. There's something freeing about your way of presented these titles as "choices." You cannot lose.


message 3: by Tracey (new)

Tracey (trakka) | 1363 comments Exactly! Thanks.

Have slowed down on the reading at the moment. Too much else to do!! I don't think it will be a big month this month either because we are going to New York.

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments Ack, there's a book called Cockroaches! lol

Memory Man is a good one. I really enjoyed that one.

Ha ha! It's part of a police procedural type series. I'll let you know if there are any cockroaches in it :-)

Tracey (trakka) | 1363 comments I finished Mercy. Was quite disappointed to be honest. Felt the main storyline was quite weak and was more interested in the sub plot.

Have started 84 Charing Cross Road which I forgot to add to my original list!

Picoult can be hit or miss.


message 8: by Mary Beth (new)

Mary Beth  | 974 comments I didnt fit in Magic Bleeds last month either. I am definately going to read it this month though. Really looking forward to it!


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2416 comments Good picks. Anne of Green Gables is my "grab during a fire" book!

Yes I really want to fit it in this month as well although it will be after the 26th as I have it in paperback and I only want to take my kindle with me!

I am reading this to my girls and we are all enjoying it. My youngest completely relates to Anne as she loves to talk and also do a lot of imagining.


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2416 comments I sense a kindred spirit in your youngest! ;) I hope you all enjoy.


message 13: by Tracey (new)

Tracey (trakka) | 1363 comments Ha ha ha! Yes most definitely!

As it's on audio I may not get to it until the end of the month when I'm back from my trip. I'm actually struggling with audios at the moment. I have started listening to 5 different audios and can't get into any :-(

Did you enjoy The Narrows?


message 25: by Tracey (new)

Tracey (trakka) | 1363 comments Yes I did. Just took me a while to read due to being busy. Not my favourite instalment in the series and I missed the twists that Connelly is good at but I still love Harry!
