1. Saplings by Noel Streatfield

2. The behaviour of moths by Poppy someone

3. The palace of strange Girls by Sally someone

4. The girl with the dragon tattoo by someone swedish.

1. Very much enjoyed.

2. disappointing end - couldn't work out what was wrong with her

3 - chick lit. easy and readable - not finished it yet

4 - tried it before and couldn't get going so will have to try again.

I also have a book token. what should I get?

I've just finished The time travellers wife, and her new book is coming out at end of September sounds like a good read

Three Dollars by Elliot Perlman; light and easy to read.

1. Saplings by Noel Streatfield *brilliant book*

2. The behaviour of moths *tried reading it but got a bit bored with the endless descriptions of moths so put it away to try again another time*

3. The palace of strange Girls *not read*

4. The girl with the dragon tattoo *amazing book, very long, but so worth it*

why did my comments not come out in bold? I put the * mark around it and everything angry

last train you have to put it round each word (sorry got bored with doing it).

I recommend This thing of Darkness about darwin ad Fitzroy and the Voyage of the Beagle, my book group's book and I loved it sooooo much.

Haven't read any of your books EG blush
