And also, what do you mean ALMOST all of my recommendations? What bad recommendations have I made? I think coming from the girl who told me to watch Pan's Labyrinth and The Piano, that's really a bit below the belt... ;)
Who was the first?
The only thing that disappointed me about this book is that I now have to wait until November for the second in the trilogy. Gutted. It was amazing.
You should read this, only started it yesterday and am Loving it! I know you will too.
Or maybe I should just go back to sleep and realise that my comment about the photographer came after the "that's a bit cool" statement. Never mind......
What's a bit cool? The photo or the potential photographer or something else entirely?
Do you have someone lined up for doing your photographs? If not, my brother-in-law (who did mine and Jo's) is pretty good and not being a proper-job professional cheaper (seriously cheaper) than your average-joe photographer.
Have you looked through my official photographs from the wedding yet? There's a nice one of Gertrude, ye and me but you'll have to buy it...

(My sister's photos are also on there if you wanted to be nosy...)

Exquisite. And a lovely interpretation!
Just noticed the date of my last comment on here. Can't believe how long ago that was!!! Am I supposed to have finished Robin Ince by now?? It is on it's way to me in the post. Sorry I got a bit distracted...
Nah Hobson's Choice is where the phrase sod's law comes from... At least that was my understanding of the book. It was a bad book. Not even sure whether Sophie's Choice was ever a book. I know it was a film. Basically she had to choose between her son or her daughter. Not that I've seen it.

April is not that far away. September is even less far away. Even though it comes later. It most definitely is not far.
No the Sophie's Choice comment was re the big decision you have to make on your +1 to my wedding.

Yes, Water for Elephants. Movie out in April. You must Must MUST read book by then. (At the latest. The sooner you read, the sooner we can discuss...)
I definitely think the two of us possess elements of both nerd and geek. Especially with disgusting carnival acts part :p

Glad to hear things with the infamous Bean are going well. How's Sophie's Choice coming? :D
Enough comments for this month? Not likely!
Correction. Facebook follower.
Also, was just on Jennifer Donnelly's website trying to find out when The Wild Rose is due and you're picture was on her main page as one of her Twitter followers... you're famous! :p
Shocking - over five months since my last comment.
Nice profile pic :)
Just finished 'A Town Like Alice'. Cannot recommend enough. I absolutely loved it and know you will too.
Can you explain the Early Reviewers thing to me?
You sign up to get free books on the proviso you review them?
Am I even close to the right tree to be barking up?
Sometimes the things that the sound the craziest of all are the very ones that make the most sense...
My pleasure. Your collections reminded of a few books I had forgotten I read, and I see some likley candidates to add my wishlist.
Hello to you too :) I am a sporadic Thinger... logging on when I've raided my local library, or realise that my bookshelves are overflowing and I've not noted down what I've got. I'm getting rather forgetful, so I find this a good way of keeping track of what I've read. I've already discovered that Rosemary Sutcliff wrote a whole series around 'Eagle of the Ninth' which I will have to read. No idea how I missed them when I was a child. Happy reading!
You must add Kate Morton's 'The House at Riverton' and 'The Forgotten Garden' to your wish list. I'm sure you'd like them. I did. Loved them, in fact. Especially the second, although there were a couple of characters in the first that I completely adored (one in particular who was very Jim-Taylor-ised - at least in my imagination). There was a gorgeous line in The Forgotten Garden too...
"Memory is a cruel mistress with whom we all must learn to dance." I'm sure you'd like them. They reminded me of Jennifer Donnelly which can't possibly be a bad thing.
One does not understand the concept of tagging...
Didn't realise how many books on my shelf were yet to be read until I started sorting them on here. 18!!! And I keep buying new ones every time I go anywhere near a book shop...
Hi Jen:

I'm a fellow aspiring writer too. I love it that LT allows people from across the world to talk books and writing. I have a writing blog too, though it's been awhile since I've posted anything.

Glad to meet someone from Wales. Say hello to Charlotte Church for me. :-)

I see that we both like Bernard Cornwell.
