When We Were Orphans by Kazuo Ishiguro and other news

Finished this book earlier today and still haven't decided whether I liked it or not. It is my second Ishiguro book and I think it is his style that I have a problem with. In this book there was one thing I kept mentally shouting at the MC for and I think this tarnished it a bit. But in the end I liked the way it was resolved and I enjoyed how they mystery was solved.

Up next for reading is either Marley and Me or The House at Riverton, I can't decide:)

In other news I have started this years NaNoWriMo, I registered a few years ago and this is the first time that I have actually started. I am up to just over 5,000 words at the moment and am pleased with myself. Let's just hope I can carry it on.

It was really good catching up with people's blogs and already I have a few books added to my wish list so thanks everyone lol! Take care and be safe:)

Wow! It's been 2 months - so glad you're back. Best of luck with your writing this month. I think those of you who do the NaNo thing are brave.

Good luck with NaNoWriMo. I'm nowhere near brave enough to attempt that yet.

Thanks! I don't think it is so much brave as it is daft but what the heck:)
