    2020 will begin with another personal focus
    on an incredible young adult historical fiction
    series
    AS a study in reimaginings.

    this particular book will be reviewed with
    each of the preceding books.
    IT is the convergence of prior developments.
    characters, events, incremental migrations are all skillfully integrated.

    The Wake of the Lorelei Lee: Being an Account of the Adventures of Jacky Faber, on her Way to Botany Bay (2010) 8/12

    IF you have not explored the historical fiction created
    by L. A. Meyer, in the guise of Miss Jacky Faber,
    ("Bloody Jack: Being An Account of the Curious Adventures
    of Mary “Jacky” Faber, Ship’s Boy
    " & 11 additional titles)
    i urge you to consider [them] as temperatures drop and
    nights lengthen.

    I threw a glance at humankind and saw them treacherous and feeble.
    Severe judges, cruel, unkind and fools who are always close to evil.
    Before their frightful, anxious mob, indifferent hate forever rages.
    Not learnt the lessons from the ages!
    What use are wise and tempered words?
    "Sometime, in my sweet blindness" - Pushkin

    I'm three quarters of the way through Juliet Ashton's " The Woman at Number 24 " and it's an absolute page-turner. Brilliant brilliant brilliant read imo. A novel involving ordinary people and their not so ordinary lives, the twists and turns therein are incredible. What a read, what a writer.

    Another name added to my " look out for " list.
    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    I must find a way to Eastbourne and i so wish that i could dance.

    I finally finished Peter F Hamilton's Commonwealth Saga, 2500 pages and a plethora of characters so numerous it was hard to keep track of them; I often found myself wondering just who I was reading about only to recall a few minutes later. Brilliant world building but not a page turner by any means.
    Just finished Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus and did start her next The Starless Sea when I changed my mind and decided to re-read Altered Carbon and try to follow the whole trilogy through, if I can. The beauty with digital books is your virtual bookmark isn't going anywhere anytime soon; not that I haven't got enough physical books to get through, over a metre high and counting.

    I recently started re-reading The Chris Farley Show, (bio about Chris Farley). I had read it years ago and couldn't put it down. It's a dark yet fascinating story.

    Add to that M.C.Beaton's "The Death of a Sweep" another brilliant read.

    Happy days here in the dither-room.

    I'm about to start on some Norman Mailer. That guy was a frickin' weirdo.
