Have finally read my first Muriel Spark novel The Public Image, and I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to discovering a new author... She has quite a large catalogue of books.

I bought an omnibus of The Dark Is Rising quintology back in 2014 and thought it was about time I re-read the books.

Turns out I've never read them before!

There was someone I was talking to on here about twisty psychological thrillers - Mia, was it you? - and about Caroline Kepnes' book You. Anyway, she has a sequel coming out shortly called Hidden Bodies (You was excellent if you like that sort of book)


It was me! Did you know this is now on Netflix? It's really compelling and I recommend it. I read the sequel too.

Spotted as an ebook on Amazon: A Marriage Under the Terror, Patricia Wentworth's first novel pub 1910.She came first in a publishing competition. I think it was more than my usual price, could have been £3.99 :shock: but I've been wanting to read it. I enjoyed it a lot, a familiar scenario - young aristo girl alone in Paris as the Terror gets into its stride, but the hero is quite different. A worthwhile read, with echoes of Baroness Orczy and early GH, but not as goodzooky or forsoothly as the Orczy and not a lot of humour a la GH.
