message 21: by Yz the Whyz, Moderator (new)

Yz the Whyz (whyz) | 9327 comments I just finished Marr's Ink Exchange. Interesting ending. It's not what i was hoping for, but it was realistic for the situation.

Need to find something light to offset the dark gloom it left me with.

message 26: by Vi (new)

Vi | 2017 comments I finished Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel a little bit earlier. I didn't like it as much as I wanted to. I'm also listening to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, #1) by J.K. Rowling - audiobook and I think this may finally be the one audio book I'll get through completely.

D.G. | 4477 comments I'm also listening to a book narrated by Stephen Fry! (My first one) The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Going really well. :)


message 28: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (laurenjberman) Finished Standing in the Shadows (McClouds & Friends, #2) by Shannon McKenna - the beginning and end are great. The middle lags a bit but I love the characters.

Now reading Seduction & Scandal (The Brethren Guardians, #1) by Charlotte Featherstone - I'm a sucker for a tortured hero.


message 29: by Vi (new)

Vi | 2017 comments DG, I'm trying the HP audio book thanks to you. I think this might be my first complete audiobook (I suspect it's because of the <9 hours listening time)

Oh, I need to read the Hitchhiker series soon too. How long is the audio?
