    I love the pic of Prague – I’ve heard it is a beautiful and am very glad you had such a lovely time. You’ve had a wonderful month, again Lynn. I’m looking forward to reading your review of Freeks and my favourite Moriarty cover is the blue one. I’m delighted to see that you’ve acquired Doomsday Book:)). Happy New Year to you!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Prague was really beautiful – we had a great time. Can’t wait to read the Doomsday Book.
      Lynn 😀

    Happy new year! An wow, you did so much reading. Envious! Looking forward to your upcoming reviews for Gilded Cage, Morning Star, Freeks, Bear and the Nightingale, ACaCO…all books I’ve read or am looking forward to reading!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Wow – I had such a lot of reviews to catch up with! Nearly there but I’ve hardly been chatting to anyone or visiting blogs! So busy over Christmas and then back to work with all the nightmare that involves! Still – I’m getting there now!

    Happy New Year to you too Lynn 🙂 I hope you had a wonderful time in Prague – going by that stunning photo it looks amazing! I look forward to your thoughts on Bear and the Nightingale and I hope you enjoy all your new books! As for the covers for Moriarty, I pretty much like them all except I am not keen on that faded-out grey colour on the 3rd cover.
