  1. Awww, shame to hear that The Paris Wife didn’t quite live up to expectations – I haven’t read that one but was looking forward to it (although Naomi Wood’s Mrs. Hemingway will be even more interesting, I think). Thanks for the mention – and do let’s reconvene for 2016 – it’s a great way to refresh your memory and think about any possible reading patterns…

  2. Thank you for the link. Pleased to see Trouble at the Little Village School mentioned, as I now have it and The School Inspector Calls! on my to-be-read pile. I hope to be here again for another 6 in 2016 🙂

  3. The Paying Guests is still languishing on my shelf too. I’ll get round to it eventually! I hope you enjoy your next six months of reading – and yes, let’s do this again in 2016!

I love hearing from you so please leave a reply.
