Natalie A | 21 comments I see this is an old thread and rarely used but I still want to have a go at this challenge 😁

I'm already half way through some chic-lit set in northern England and I'm a northern English woman so that's where I shall begin my travels.

It's best to be well prepared, Natalie, It's a long haul!

Welcome to the challenge, it maybe a well-seasoned thread, but it's still very active. I keep meaning to continue my own travels now that I've completed my US tour....

Yeah, have a great trip. May your balloon never burst and your supplies never run out. Wet wipes and a torch are useful additions when going somewhere strange and new.

Natalie A | 21 comments Thank you, I'm in for the long haul.
There's some I want to read inbetween these too whilst travelling from country to country, so many books, so little time.

Rachel | 216 comments Hi Natalie
I too recently started this challenge and only 3 countries in and distracted by other books. Looking forward to seeing your choices Maybe our paths/flights will cross....

Natalie A | 21 comments Ah great! I will look out for you on my travels, I'm easily distracted when it comes to books and also if I read something that's quite intense then I like a bit of trashy chic-lit afterwards to recover lol.

Natalie A | 21 comments I'm finally leaving England!
....but on my travels to Scotland I'm reading 'Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.'

message 12: by Natalie (new)

Natalie A | 21 comments Finished Eleanor Olliphant on my travels to the next country, brilliant read! ... parts of the dialogue in this made me think it may have been somewhere Scottish too. On to a rougher part of Scotland now, wish me luck.

Natalie A | 21 comments Ok I may be stuck in Scotland for a while.....
