  1. Favorite Song?

    Right now, I cant stop listening to Edge of Seventeen by Fleetwood Mac. Now that both my boys are grown and into proper music I get to hear the following songs A LOT- Five Finger Death Punch - Jekyll and Hyde Mushroomhead - Qwerty ACDC - All Night Long Childish Gambino - This is America U2 - Where the Strees Have No Name All pretty good, so I am not complaining too much.

    Started Lullaby by Leila Slimani this afternoon.

    The Tall Man by Phoebe Locke - weird book. Supernatural suspense without the actual suspense so far!
  4. what is everyone doing?

    Thanks momac, me too. A friend has asked me to make the place cards, table cards and wedding seating plan for his upcoming wedding so that is keeping me busy as well during the summer. 150 place cards done yesterday - back broke a little!
  5. The Shepherd's Hut

    Thanks Mr HG - could have googled to make sure but if we googled everything, it'd be a dull world. Dirt Music was amazing.
  6. what is everyone doing?

    So we finally finished for summer and boy has it been hot. Poor dog is suffering. I haven't been doing much reading lately, so today I plan to finish a job application then sit out in the back garden (in the shade) and read. That's it.
  7. I just bought/borrowed/received...

    I love this book Luna. I just bought a sort of follow-up - not by the same author, but it says it's a follow-up to Quiet, which focuses on social anxiety and how to overcome it. Very un-self-helpy which I love.
  8. The Shepherd's Hut

    Did he write Dirt Music? I absolutely loved that book and I remember having to buy it a couple of times because I kept losing my copy. Definitely going to check this out.

    I'll Be Gone In The Dark by Michelle McNamara - McNamara was the creator of True Crime Diary website where she used to report on unsolved crimes. She became obsessed with the Golden State Killer who committed 30 odd rapes and was never caught. This is her story about her investigation into the cold case. Sadly she died before finishing it and her husband Patton Oswalt finished it from her notes. Bizarrely some 4 months after publication, the GSK was caught. It's a fascinating read.
  10. Lucifer

    I wasn't surprised it got cancelled, even though me and eldest liked it, we grew tired of it about the middle of the second season. A weird thing that once you notice you can't stop noticing - the female cop, when anyone else is performing, she just stands frozen, arms by her side until she needs to deliver her lines. It drove us crazy.
  11. Some CYA books are better written because they generally have less pages to tell the story and get to the point much quicker. Some...cause clearly Harry Potter books are loooong!
  12. I bought this last month, Apple, really looking forward to reading it now. I think it popped up on one of those '10 thrillers you MUST read' lists.
  13. Thirteen

    Amazon keeps recommending this to me and I had a look at it today, realising it was the fourth book in a series. I would need to start at the first though, I do like this kind of quick, entertaining read. I think, on the basis of your review, I'll pick up the first.
  14. I.Q.

    I just bought this recently, it's sitting on the shelves waiting to be read. Quite looking forward to it.
  15. Never really fancied this book, but the trailer for the film looks pretty good. Has anyone seen it yet?
