I read Sherry Thomas many years ago when she wrote romance and they were really good!

Can't wait for the new Dervla McTiernan book!

I'm listening to Crawdads at the moment. I can see why you loved it so much

I really hope that you do get to read Melina Marchetta and Rainbow Rowell! I am only a recent convert to Marchetta but I really loved On the Jellicoe Road and The Piper's Son in particular!

It is interesting because I really disliked the ending too. I went to an event where Geraldine Brooks was asked a question about the ending and lots of people in the crowd indicated that they didn't like it. I was therefore surprised when she said that the ending was actually based on the diaries of a young woman of the time who had the experience that was described.

Oh, first post I have seen about this. Need to go and sign up!

The Forgotten Garden does have some fairy tale elements so would be good choice.

Need ot look at my shelves and see what I have.

He seems like such a decent guy for someone who is so successful! I have heard him speak and he seems funny and smart!

Hmm. Interesting timing. I have a post about something similar perculating in my brain for Sunday Salon either tomorrow or next week. A lot of what you are saying definitely still rings true.

Interesting that the graphic novel is so much longer than the actual book! Gatsby is quite a small book.

I would feel like a bit of a fraud too, given that we are coming to the end of a very hot summer!
