I hope you are well.
I see from your review how much you enjoyed 'Before I go to Sleep' by S.J Watson. It's a great debut novel.
I’m hoping to find readers like you who appreciate original fiction and might be interested in trying out my novel "The DEAD LOOP". It is a unique psychological mystery about a man that seemingly ‘dies’ every single day.
So far Shelfari readers I have tempted to try it say:
‘very difficult to put down’.
‘One of the most unique and original story plots that I have read in quite a long time’.
‘Best thing I’ve read since hunger games...’
If I am able to tempt you to look it up, ‘the Dead Loop’ is available at very low cost on Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Apple etc. The first 20% can also be downloaded to try at Smashwords.com.
If it intrigues you at all and you want to check it out, I would very much appreciate your feedback.
Very best wishes,
Complete Trilogy edition
Am nearly finished with "Five quarters..." and am actually enjoying it. Won't probably remember it much in a year from now either, but it's been a light read for this week. Should finish it today and then.... oh fiddlesticks....which one to pick from the ever growing "to-read pile". Read your comment about "The red tent" and it's the same here - have heard many good comments. Would you like me to bring along "Alone in Berlin" when we meet next week? Have a good weekend. xxx
Hiya, surprise, surprise!! Re-activated my account (had forgotten password) and have all good intentions to be better with this this time round (ha who am I kidding... well, if not a review - am discovering a very lazy streak in my character - at least put up what I've read and some stars. How funny, bought "The Great Gatsby" last Xmas in England at a Xmas bazar (for 2 Pounds!!!) - had always wanted to read it, so watch this space and let's see if we compare. Also, gave the "Solar" to a friend's husband for his 50th when it came out - oops (he never did say anything about it!). Very curious about Sarah's key cause saw the DVD for sale and Kirstyn Scott Thomas is in it whom I like very much. Bye for now.
I really enjoyed looking through your shelf and took a couple of books for my wish list.
I noticed you had Stolen lives by Malika Oufkir, did you know she put out a book about her life afterwards called, "Freedom: The Story of My Second Life"
also Deborah Rodriguez who wrote Kabul Beauty School put out a novel called "A Cup of Friendship" about an american woman who opens a coffee shop in the heart of Afghanistan, very enjoyable read.
Thank you so much for recommending A FINE BALANCE. I loved it. (even though very dark) We really do share the same taste in books (as in home towns...) Hope all is well in Singapore. Cold grey-slate sky here brrrrrrrrrr. Just right to snuggle up with a book. I am now reading (dare I admit?) Ken Follet - Fall of Giants - and thoroughly enjoying it!!! xxx
When are you going to have surgery on your shoulder? Or is that already done? Hope you will recover quickly! Out of the three Sarah Waters' book, I liked Little Stranger the most. The Book Club discussion is on tonight. I have a cold, but I go anyway. I really want to know what everybody else thought about it. Regards to all!!
Hello Gill. How is Dominique? Isnt she having her operation? I actually couldnt put down "the Girl..." because it was just so gripping. BUT - it took me a good 100 pages to get into it. And I thought it was really badly written. Stick with it, and you will enjoy it. Trust me. I immediately went out and bought the sequels..... I just finished 44 Scotland Street, which i thoroughly enjoyed. Good old-fashioned writing and values.
Talk to you soon on Skype. Tomorrow morning I should be sitting at my desk if you have a minute.
