Elin Eriksen (vaarin) | 545 comments Oh, I loved green card too. Wonder if the author had some fun naming the chapters though as they never seem to contain exactly what I expected in reference to the title...
And the conscience series I adore, the forth will be coming this year, I can't wait to read it!

Mary | 245 comments Marianne Dashwood Level-

6.On Equal Ground. E.Adams. 5.*
7. The Birds and the Bees.(unpub).J.Caldwell. 3*.
8. Pride and Prejudice and a Shakespearean Scholar. R.Jeffers. 4*.
9. The Abominable Mr Darcy. J.Dawn King. 4.5*.
10. Colours. Laure001.(fanfiction). 5*
( I thought Colours was beautifully penned,very thought provoking and clever in its choice of words and metaphors. I've read it twice and will probably read it again. Very realistic and recommended but beware that it's centred around the topic of melancholy, experienced by more than one character,yet is a very satisfying read).

message 16: by Mary (new)

Mary | 245 comments I read your review of it Debbie. Very well said.It certainly is a favourite of yours,I think you've read it twice!


message 17: by Elin (new)

Elin Eriksen (vaarin) | 545 comments I loved remedy against sin. Must put it on my reread list as it has been a while since I read it last...


message 18: by Mary (new)

Mary | 245 comments Vaarin,it's definitely one that you could enjoy again. Second time round you'd appreciate it more and find things you'd missed during the initial reading.
