Thank you for bearing with me…

Dear friends,

Firstly apologies for filling up your inboxes with new old posts. After my web-hosting move and loss of content I’ve nearly finished reposting all the 2016 posts I wanted to include again in their original order, (I have left some out and combined others). There are still millions of old links to rebuild, most of last year’s posts to add and a missing chunk of reviews in the middle years (I now have files with almost all of them – thanks Sylvie!). I’ll gradually add the odd old post back in now and then rather than batch do them.

You should find the blog much faster now, also that the subscribing and commenting problems I (and therefore you) had experienced will have gone away!

Loads of book reviews to come very soon. Meanwhile, what have you been reading lately?

    I’ve just finished a book that I’m not entirely sure I enjoyed, ‘The Woman on the Train’ by Rupert Colley. The book starts in Nazi occupied France in 1942 and finishes in 1982. The premise is – ‘SOMEONE SAVES YOUR LIFE HOW FAR WILL YOU GO TO REPAY THAT DEBT’. That quote piqued my interest. It started off well but it was the ending that I’m unsure about.
    I’ve enjoyed reading through your posts, new and old.

      Thank you Jennifer. It’s a shame when book endings don’t quite work, isn’t it.

    I just spent the afternoon finishing Grand Hotel by Vicki Baum, so that I could record it with my June books. (?)

    I’m glad you’re feeling a little more settled with your blog history. It must have been awful to lose it all.

      Thanks Debbie. Not heard of that author – did you read it in French? Only version of that in the UK appears to be in French.

    It’s been quite interesting revisiting all your posts! Hope things have settled down now for you!

    Currently (not) reading the next Dorothy Richardson in the sequence as it’s a struggle. Also Dibdin’s Last Sherlock Holmes Story which I’m really not happy about. Then I have a pile of review books, including Grand Hotel… Hopefully something will grab me soon as I’m verging on hitting a slump!

      I have a big pile of review books to get into to too! Can be off-putting – but I know there are real goodies in the pile. Fingers crossed you don’t hit a slump.

    Oh dear, sorry to hear about all your struggles. I’m currently reading an Easy Book because I’ve got a bit low and distracted recently, but I have some review copies and interesting and not Too Hard books coming up.

    • AnnaBookBel says:

      Sometimes you just have to pick an Easy Book don’t you! I’m currently reading a very slow-burning pastoral life novel and it’s beautiful but slower than my usual fare.

    Glad your website problems are (touch wood) over! I’m reading a ton of ebooks right now, because all my library Overdrive holds came in all at once: Lindy West’s Shrill, Yaa Gyasi’s Homegoing, this book about pit bulls, and this book about how taste algorithms work.
