Hi Catriona ! Well, I finished it (finally). You were right, there were many exciting cliff hangers in the end. Thankfully, the novel started to pick up its pace and interest me again, or else I would never have finished it ! I wonder how long it will be until the final novel is out? I hope it is not years ! I had a hard time picturing Lord John and Claire "comforting" each other ! Lots of untied and loose ends. I think the last novel will end up being as heavy as a brick with all the stuff she needs to wrap up !
Hi Catriona ! Happy New Year ! I was thinking of you, because I am finally reading "An Echo in the Bone". I am a little more than half way through, and it has been slow going. I see you gave it 5 stars, so I am hopeful that it is going to pick up. Hope all is well !
Seventh time?? w-o-w. See, I would be compelled to read Cross Stitch right now just because it was called Cross Stitch and not Outlander, regardless that I finished Outlander again a few weeks ago and it is the same @#%^*$ book LOL
My daughter has all the Twilight books so I do intend to read them all. Great - the to-read list just got bigger - I hadn't actually added them yet. What was that episode called with Burgess? "Time Enough at Last" LOL Good thing I don't need reading glasses like he did! (I can't see far, but I can read with nothing!)
I can't tear myself away from Jamie and Claire....again. I did stop after Dragonfly to read Twilight, but I went right back for Voyager. My to-read list gets longer every day (literally) and here I am reading a book I have already read. What is wrong with me? I feel like Burgess Meredith in that episode of the Twlight Zone where all he wants to do is read!! I hope I make out better than *that* LOL
HA I haven't ever *seen* The Notebook - only read the book! I did enjoy the book - I am sure you will need as many tissues as you did with the movie. I read it a number of years ago but I remember there one this one spot that was a time transition and I thought that part in particular gave the story the "umph" I was hoping for. It is a very slim novel and will likley not take too much time but will be satisfying when you are through. That is my "lover of books, expert of nothing" review!
Are you talking about "Map of the World"? I stopped reading that...it got too stupid. So don't. :D Now I'm reading a Nicholas Sparks book. Have you read "Tuesdays with Morrie"? It's actually a true story, and can be life-enhancing. Have fun with those texts! hahaha!
I'm reading a book now that's not so great....had some good reviews, so I'm surprised. It's called "The Map of the World". It IS depressing, but I can handle that..this one just isn't really going anywhere, and I'm not really loving the characters either....have you read "Rosie Dunne"? It's different, but delightful. a Chick-lit...a pretty good one.
