  1. Thank you for creating and keeping this meme going. Looks like the last six months have been good for you. I hope the next six months are as equally good. I particularly look forward to reading your thoughts on Cauldstone by Linda Gillard. Happy reading!

  2. Thanks for running this meme again – I did enjoy compiling mine. I too have Cauldstone waiting to be read. I enjoyed Dying in the Wool and am currently reading The Cuckoo’s Calling. there are so many good books around these days that it’s difficult sometimes to know where to start, so recommendations from others are always welcome and I’ve enjoyed reading your reviews.

  3. Thanks for hosting this again, Jo. I have The Marriage Game and The White Princess still to read too. I hope you enjoy your reading over the next six months!

  4. Can I just drop in to correct my title? It’s actually CAULDSTANE, not CAULDSTONE. I wouldn’t want you to have any trouble finding it on Amazon!

    “Stane” is a Scots version of “stone”, so we have “dry stane dykes” where in England you have “dry stone walls”. But I chose the name CAULDSTANE partly for its association (aurally at least) with “stain”. The book is about a family with dark secrets and they’re blighted by a curse.
