Loved Of Mice and Men.  Haven't had a chance to think about holiday reading yet.  Hoping to pick up some tips on this thread.  The Grapes of Wrath is also an excellent book.

I'm reading a romance by Mandy Magro. The story is ok but she has all the characters being very rough and ready. Just because the live in FNQ. I think she needs to visit up there to see that people don't speak like that generally. Maybe some men do when they are working, but not everyone.

I'm reading True Blue at the moment. I've just finished The Aviator's Wife.  It was a good read.

I started the Trauma Cleaner a week or so ago. It's not really interesting me much.
I'm also trying to read my bookclub book which is about being a bookshop owner. It is written in a diary form. It's not very interesting wither. I finished Tami Hoag's latest the other day and loved it.

Just finished reading The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary - a thoroughly delightful book.

DD reviewed this Marina, so I will be reading it, especially as you both recommended it.

I gave up on The Trauma Cleaner. I'm reading Beautiful Death by Fiona McIntosh, it is a crime book and I'm really enjoying it.

I will tell her that Marina. She will be thrilled. She receives so many books to review! They are taking over the house. It does mean I only buy my crime ones though.
