Hello fellow book fans! It's been ages I know! I have been pretty pants at keeping up-to-date on here. My last post was in January. I had thought I hadn't read much since then to blog about, but I have actually read 8 books since my last update bringing my total up to 80 in my 95 book challenge. Not bad considering my attention span decided to go skaplooey and became less than that of a gnat! I actually have no idea how good the attention span of a gnat is, but am guessing it's not huge seeing as they are so small. ;-)
Anyhoo, my most recent finish was The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman. It was a nice easy read and gets the award for best use of the word hyperbolic which thanks to AS English I now know has nothing whatsoever to do with bowling!
