    2020 continues 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.
    characters, events, incremental migrations are all skillfully integrated.

    IF you have not explored the reimagings created
    by Ransom Riggs, in the guise of Jacob Magellan Portman,

    i urge you to consider [them] regardless of temperature.
    imho, this series wants to be read indoors and out.

    I recently hit a rich vein of M.C.Beatons at my local library.
    Happy days dithering.
    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.

    Alas, i am weak.

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

    Steppenwolf (the novel, not the band). I've never read it. I find Hesse's writing style relaxing and a joy to read, and that's a big plus in this day and age. I'm going to read Siddhartha next.

    I haven't read Steppenwolf either. I did read Siddharta from Hesse and that's quite good.

    It was a long time ago I read it, but 'The glass bead game' was pretty good.

    Not so much what, but who?

    I have recently discovered the works of a writer who goes by the name of David Baldacci. Classified as thrillers/crime stories. Whatever. I seem to have discovered my genre where reading material is concerned. Four books of his I have read now and they're brilliant although, perhaps, that has a lot to do with the writer. Truly amazing stuff.

    I'm reading Lolita again because it really is one of my favourites.

    'The Night of the Mi'raj' by Zoev Ferraris. It is a a proof copy I was given back in 2008 when it came out, I was supposed to read it long ago. Pity I didn't, I am up to page fifty before I know it, and loving it.
