GASP!!! at the end of chapter 51 (the Danny story) there's Ella letting out a breath she wasn't aware of holding!

Mr King, I choked on my morning tea! 😂😂😂

Ruthiella 😱 It‘s insidious. Claire Keegan also used it in 3w
Oryx I spotted that too. I wondered if it was on purpose... I hope 3w
julesG @Oryx I thought it was on purpose. And it came as quite a surprise. 3w
julesG @Ruthiella I wonder if established authors do it on purpose. 🤔 3w

Thanks for the tag @RaeLovesToRead !
#twofortuesday @TheSpineView thank you!

1. Yes I'll always have at least a glass of water with me :-)

2. Having a couple of nights off booze as nasty cough so recuperating, a camomile tea whilst reading a trashy thriller

Tag any of the #gladstonerds crew and anyone else!

Recommended by two #Gladstonerds, it did not disappoint.

I liked the short stories and how they were all connected.

Do I have to point out that Julia was my favourite character?

@RaeLovesToRead @CGalinor3

RaeLovesToRead I'm so glad my BDWAB was a hit 🥰🥰🥰 8mo
CatMS I see this book was released in August 2020 as "The Eighth Detective," is this a new release under title "Eight Detectives"? 8mo
julesG @CatMS The Eighth Detective is the US title. In the UK it was released as The Eight Detectives. 8mo

Definitely blaming my fellow #Gladstonerds @RaeLovesToRead and @CGalinor3 for my current read.

Chapter 2 - there's a character named Julia who sees all the inconsistencies in the story that makes up the first chapter. 😳😳😳 (I noticed all those inconsistencies too)

TrishB I bet you did 😁 8mo
Lunakay This book is amazing, enjoy! 8mo
RaeLovesToRead Hope you like it! 😁 8mo

Books I found and read at Gladstone's Library.
An award winning stream of consciousness novel, a 19th Century travelogue, and a small poetry collection.

Books I brought and read:
Ghosts from the Library (anthology), the last half of Holly, the first half of How to Build a Boat.

Thank you especially to @scripturient @Oryx @squirrelbrain @Caroline2 @TrishB 😘😘😘 - also thanks to @RaeLovesToRead for foregoing her prior claim on The Binding and letting me schlepp it home instead.

Caroline2 Beautiful 🤩 I hope you like it 👍 9mo

Cupcake12 Are there any plans for a retreat trip this year? 4mo
julesG @Cupcake12 Yes, from October 10-13. Would be great to see/meet you there. You best ask @squirrelbrain for the booking details - there might be a discount. 4mo
squirrelbrain Hi @Cupcake12 - it would be lovely to have you along. If you email Gladstone‘s with the dates and give them my name (Helen Thain) they‘ll add you onto our group booking - there was a discount up until the end of 2023 but I‘m sure they‘ll roll it forward for you. Let me know if you do book and we can add you onto our group chat for afternoon tea bookings etc. 4mo
Cupcake12 @squirrelbrain thank you. I‘ve just emailed them to make an enquiry x 4mo
squirrelbrain Let us know how you get on! @Cupcake12 4mo

RaeLovesToRead @MicheleinPhilly If it's like it was on Saturday no one will... they had a proper rave going on somewhere. It was cute at 10pm but when it got to 3am and they were still rocking out to Natasha Bedingfield I was not impressed! 🤣🤣 9mo
