  1. Captain's Quarters

    Excellent list of bought books matey! I am looking forward to reading running out of space which I rushed to buy! I need to buy the river of teeth novellas and the spellslinger books. I am interested in yer review of touch not the cat because I have never read anything else by Mary Stewart except the hollow hills books. Sheesh! I need more loot and more time! Arrrrr!

      Haha – I need more time for sure. I seem to have gone all gungho with the loot – can’t stop myself!

    I’m glad you had a great month! My October could have been better, but here’s hoping I’ve seen the end of the 2 star streak that I had a couple weeks ago!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I couldn’t believe all your 2 star reads – I would have given up I think, I have to admire that you stuck with them. I find that my reading goes off really badly if I’m struggling with a book – it becomes an obstacle and I can’t move on until I make the decision to not finish. I don’t like doing it but sometimes I have to. Good luck with your November reads – hope they’re lots better.

    I just got a copy of The Naturalist too, I hear it’s fantastic! Ooh Mary Stewart, cool, I read The Crystal Cave years ago and loved it.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’ve not read any Mary Stewart so I’m looking forward to this.

    And here goes my vow about not adding any more titles to my ever-lengthening list of “wanted” books! 😀 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      I know exactly what you mean – my wishlist is ridiculous.
